God Of War III Is Installation FreeS

Your inevitable purchase of God Of War III won't inflict massive damage on your available hard drive space. The highly anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive will be one of the console's games that doesn't require a hard drive install.

So says Christer Ericson, director of technology at Sony Santa Monica, a person in position to know. As Ericson points out on Twitter (via MTV Multiplayer), a mere 5 MB worth of space will be required for your game save, the rest of your gigabytes free to remain unwritten. That's pretty exciting news for those of us who hate to wait and already have a year's supply of sandwiches made.

Combine that with the game's streaming loading and seconds long wait from title screen to action and God Of War III may be the year's most efficient PlayStation 3 game.
