Get ready for a big game installation file

Once you finally pick up your copy of the oft-hyped, much-delayed Gran Turismo 5, be prepared to wait a bit longer. The game will prompt you to download a pretty huge file to your PS3 before you ever start playing it.

According to reports, the file is a 6.4 GB download and takes 40-50 minutes to install to the PS3 hard drive.

However, there's some good news about this. Prior to the game being completed, allegedly leaked info suggested the GT5 download file would be as much as 10 GB.

So for all of you who are running low on PS3 storage capacity, you might want to do some house cleaning now that you know exactly how much space you'll need to keep GT5 running smoothly.

But if you really just can't get yourself to delete that season of Battlestar Galactica, don't worry. The install is not mandatory. However, if you don't perform it your game will have longer and more frequent load times, and won't be in optimal performance capacity when you play it. And after five years of waiting, don't you deserve optimal performance?
