While being shown the Fallout 3 universe, TheGameReviews.com asked whether or not Fallout 3 would require a Mandatory Install for the Playstation 3. Bethesda responded:
“We do not do that, no. We do the put you know, put the stuff down there that we need to be there, we can stream it on in and out of there but we do not do the ‘we need ten minutes of your time.’” They went on to explain, “We will cache the same way on both (Xbox 360 and PS3) we basically just like everybody you know if you have a hard drive, it does this.” Much like how they did Oblivion.
At least Playstation 3 owners won’t have to worry about clearing space on the HDD in order to play this much anticipated release. If you’re a big Fallout fan, be sure to check back to TheGameReviews.com, as we have much more Fallout information, as well as our preview coming very soon.
