Naughty Dog: No mandatory installation for Uncharted 2
A report circulated earlier on the web about a possible mandatory installation required to play the upcoming PS3 exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but thanks to Twitter, Naughty Dog quickly put an end to the speculation and officially stated that there will be no mandatory installation for the game.
The news broke when a mandatory installation size of 1.7GB was discovered on the boxart of the game but was later corrected by Naughty Dog as a typo. Now they have released an official statement on their Twitter account dismissing any other reports regarding the games installation and said:
We can confirm there is NO mandatory installation for UNCHARTED2
So there you have it, no worries. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is slated for an October 13 release.
