Will You Have To Install Street Fighter IV On The PS3?

By Spencer . January 14, 2009 . 5:36pm

sf4The PS3 version of Devil May Cry 4 had a mandatory install, but Street Fighter IV does not. If you want to shave off load times between brawls you still can, though. Seth Killian, Community Manager at Capcom, confirms an optional install is a feature is in the PlayStation 3 game. Details about the amount of space an install will take weren’t described, but you mind as well put that 20/40/60/80/X (you upgraded your PS3’s hard drive on your own) GB hard drive to good use!

    I install everything, no matter what, just ’cause I can.

    Also, I know I can find this if I researched hard enough (since it’s been in the arcades, right?), but is SF4 has the traditional six-button game? If it is, I may need to find me a DualShock2 adapter for my PSX Sega Saturn pad.

    6 buttons for sure.

    “but you mind as well”?!

    I used to drag the mandatory install when my 60Gb was running out of space, but now I install everything ever since I’ve upgraded to a 320 gb (only ~260gb usable though). In fact, I install all current games I’m playing on the 360 as well, so that it runs quiet and cool for hours. I think the 360 pad has a better analog stick, but I’m most likely getting the PS3 ver. for the anime disc on Blu-ray.

  • the 360 version has more online players, and (based on HD Remix on ps3) won’t lag and drop your connection as much.

    serious players should go for the xbox version. (and get that awesome tournament edition stick)

    Don’t got a PS3 but I’ll probably install it in my 360 HD. I’ve seen the PS3 loading vid but I read at Capcom Unity that the CES 09 version wasn’t exactly the final retail version…plus alot of ppl were switching controllers in and out. I’m sure PS3 owners won’t have to worry about the load times at all. Even so, the optional install is a plus for anybody.

    @scott- 360 controllers just are not made for fighters, PS3 version all the way!

    SF2 HD Remix for PS3 has tons of online players, and I’ve never lagged once.

  • RO?

    PSN has all the best Japanese players on it, nuff said.
