According to Guerrilla Games QA Manager Seb Downie, one of the most graphics laden PS3 exclusives to date, Killzone 2, will not require any pre-installation.
With many beautiful games like Fallout 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4 requiring hefty 5GB installs, it comes as a surprise that Killzone 2 won't require at least some kind of hard drive installation.
"No install. Optional or otherwise," wrote Downie on the Official PlayStation Forums.
So there you have it. No need to worry about uninstalling other games so that you can fit Killzone 2 on your hard drive. Killzone 2 is expected to release sometime in February of next year. Stay tuned for more information.

Good it irritates me to have to install not to mention that it takes up loads of memory...

It's no surprise, look at Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

everygame should have the OPTION for install to optimize load times n whatnot, not be REQUIRED. so far, i've only played one game where that is true, and thats Unreal Tournament 3.

If you have a 40 G PS3 then installs can drive you nuts. I am playing the beta and have no issue with load times. Fast loads, beautiful graphics, killer game play, what else do you want???

That's great. I'm not much of a fan of intalls. I don't see why xbox owners are so keen to have their games installed :p

I wonder if other 'programmers' will take note and then read some text books on 'how to be a better programmer for dummies' or better yet, just let guerilla do the work and let everyone else attmpt to follow.. and fail miserably.

that's what i'm talking about, now hopefully other developers will learn an take notes from the best IT CAN BE DONE!!!!!!

Games should have installs to reduce the stress on the laser. Installs are a good thing.
