Prototype on PS3 has Installation Bug, Requires Silly Work-Around

1 min read

PrototypePS3 Lazygamer’s favourite source of PS3 rancor – The mandatory install – has reared its ugly head again, this time exacerbated by a bug that prevents it from happening. The game in question, Prototype (Which will be available locally tomorrow) is afflicted by a nasty flaw – similar to the one that affected Ratchet and Clank -  that can prevent users from making the necessary installation required to play.

I know the game’s called Prototype, but it’s a little ridiculous that it actually is one.

For a fix, hit the jump!

Should your PS3 brazenly lie to you when you try and install the game, telling you that you have insufficient free space there are a number of work-arounds.
The first, as suggested by Activision, is to change the amount of data on your Hard Drive by 700mb; you could achieve this by installing or uninstalling another game, downloading or deleting demos or copying porn mp3’s to your drive.

Alternatively, you could play the game on an Xbox 360 – and not be bothered by expansive installs. Or you could just play inFamous.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
