Biggest install file ever for PS3
Gran Turismo 5 will be one of the most technologically sophisticated racing games in the history of the industry, but that sophistication won't come without a price.

When users finally crack open the case of GT5 in November - a crack that's been more than six years in the making - the first thing they'll notice is the game asking for a 10 GB install to the hard drive.
Fortunately for those who may have a 20 GB PS3 (yeah, that'd be HALF of the hard drive), or those who are already filled up with other media, the install is not required. But it will make the game run a whole lot smoother.
The game save file will tick in at 256 MB, which is still kind of large for a save file but shouldn't be any issue for PS3 users.
In addition to brilliantly rendered cars and a dizzying number of race tracks, Gran Turismo 5 will potentially become the first full disc-based PS3 game that supports 3D resolution. With all that power, the install file size isn't outrageous but it is certainly a much bigger chunk than anyone expected.
Gran Turismo 5 will launch in the US on November 2.
