Installing RAGE on Xbox 360 is “recommended”
All three discs.
id Software’s Tim Willits has “recommended” Xbox 360 players to install RAGE on their system for better performance. The PS3 version will require a mandatory one-time 8GB install.
“Sony was great. Kudos to Sony for letting us do that. They don’t allow every game to do that. So definitely, hats off,” he said. “What we were able to do is install all the textures to the highest level. What is nice about the PS3 platform is that it’s just one platform. Everyone has one Blu-ray drive, one hard drive, it’s all the same. Some of the other systems you have… should I install it on my 360? Should I not install it? So yes, it’s very nice.
“[On 360], we recommend installing the game to the hard drive, but you don’t need to install all three discs. If you don’t have the space available on your hard drive, don’t stress. Install the first disc, the first chapter, the first half of the game, then when you’re done, uninstall and install disc two.”
Players are free to swap discs whenever they want, although “there’s really no reason to.”
“You don’t really need to install the multiplayer disc if you’re really tight on hard disk space,” he said.
RAGE is out next month for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
