    Yesterday, while answering Gran Turismo 5 fans' questions via his Twitter feed, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi made a fairly startling announcement. Though the game will only require a 256MB pseudo-install on the PS3 hard drive in order to be playable, Yamauchi suggests players reserve 10GB of HDD space for the smoothest possible gameplay experience.

    Yamauchi's 140-character missive wasn't able to explain exactly why the game has two install options, or how much of an improvement the 10GB installation would offer. Not that this should matter much to folks who own a newer PS3 with a beefier hard drive -- though folks with one of the older 20GB models probably have a few difficult deletion decisions to make if they pick up Gran Turismo 5 when it launches November 2.[/p]

    What is the 10GB use for? Better gameplay performance, crispier graphics, more tracks, a storyline?

    Graphics shouldn't get any better. More tracks is unlikely unless its on 2 discs, same to story.
    It'll just be to decompress and put some of the frequently used files on the HDD to speed up loading etc. improving framerate a bit too probably.

    Running from the internal hard-drive would completely remove the need to install data as the whole game would already be loading from the HDD.

    Good thing I have a 250GB [​IMG]
