MLB 09: The Show requires massive install

Hard drives are like arteries — when they’re clogged, you’ve got a problem.

Are you a big baseball fan? If so, it might be time to upgrade your hard drive. When our review copy of MLB 09: The Show floated into our mailbox today, we were a bit disappointed to discover that it, like so many other recent games, has a mandatory 5GB install. While installs often benefit loading times and game stability, it’s no fun when you have to delete other media, downloadable games, and other content to make room for a new install. We certainly wouldn’t mind having one of those 500GB HDDs handy right now.

Stay tuned for our upcoming MLB 09: The Show review.
