Rage Install is Going to be Huge

Start clearing space on your Xbox 360. Id Software’s John Carmack has just announced the Rage install on the Xbox 360 will take up 22GB.

“On the 360 we don’t have a partial install option; it’s all or nothing, which is kind of unfortunate,” he said. “It means you have to install 21/22GB of stuff which takes a long time but if you’ve got it and you play it on the 360 that’s the way to go.”

Sorry, 20 gig 360 owners. Time to upgrade.

“Once you get everything from memory that works pretty good, but if you’re coming straight from the hard drive then the first time you walk into everything from the DVD or from the Blu-ray — even worse in terms of total latency time — you listen to that Blu-ray churning around as its [sic] pulling everything in.”

Rage will consist of three DVDs, two for the single-player game, one for the multiplayer mode.
