Before you ask, that isn’t a typo. According to Id’s John Carmack, players who opt to install RAGE onto their Xbox 360 hard drives will find themselves waiting a long time to install the 3 disc game.
“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.”
So if you’re still clinging onto your launch 360 with that 20Gb hard drive, you won’t even have enough space to install RAGE. It really puts things in perspective. Only time will tell if the install is worth it. At this point, I’m just tempted to pick up the PC version where my hard drive space isn’t as scarce.
