If you're looking to buy Rage on the Xbox 360 and you like to install your games, you're going to need to do a sh*tload of deletion first. id Software's John Carmack has stated that you'll need to shove 22GB of information down your 360's throat.
Despite the large file size, Carmack believes you'll definitely want to install it, should the 360 be your jam.
"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.
"Once you get everything from memory that works pretty good, but if youre 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 ship on three DVDs -- two for the single-player game, one for the multiplayer mode.
