Naughty Dog has moved to quash rumors indicating that the firm’s upcoming PlayStation 3 adventure sequel Uncharted 2: Among Thieves requires a mandatory install of 1.7GB.
According to VG247, reports on the install originated from a listing printed on the game’s official boxart. However, this turned out to be nothing more than a typo, with Naughty Dog asserting that the game will not require an install.
Posting on the ubiquitous Internet phenomenon that is Twitter, the developer’s co-president, Christophe Balestra, stated: “Uncharted 2 does not require any install.” That’s that, then.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be released exclusively for PS3 in October 2009.

As developers get the hang of PS3 these installs will be a thing of the past.

i dont mind the game install's, since they make my games load faster

No install? Awesome, I wouldnt mind having one but less waiting and more playing is a good thing :)

I will happily take an install if it will make the game perform better, but Naughty Dog know what they are doing so im sure it will run flawlessly! Bring on Uncharted 2!

Amazing - other developers give you a 5GB mandatory install at the start of their games.
*looks at Capcom*

Im so over all these installs... such a waste of space, and SOOO not needed, should be optional

good im sick of having to install crap to play games they is no reason when we have 50gigs of space on a Blu-Ray with really high transfer rates

The first one didn't, so I would havebeen confused if the second one did.

I'd rather games have an optional install.I prefer to install the game to make it load quicker.

Doesn't really matter to me. It is good on their part cause it shows how good of devs they are, but whatever gets the game to play the best is fine for me. If I had to install the entire game just to play it, I would have no problem.

Doesn't bother me, if there's an optional install I'll always do it, the improvements are always noticable, take Dynasty Warriors 6 for example.
Hey if it doesn't need it, I'm not going to complain.

whether there is a installatioon required or not, the games still gonna rock shelves..... cant wait

Well duh. None of the devs that know what they're doing need installs.
- 8:58am EDT - July 29th, 2009
thats nice to hear. I'm trying to erase all games I dont play that required an install.
Its a good thing really, sure the game doesnt run as well as it would if it was installed but it isnt really too noticable

Yeah, but because it has online, there will no doubt be patches and updatescoming available - which will knock it up to 100MB or so.
Dont care about installs though
- 9:31am EDT - July 29th, 2009
well if its not required, i hope there is an option to do an install. dont want to expect slow load times.

Hmmmm does the lack of an install create some other unpleasant phenomenon like waiting
