Why do most PS3 games have to install the game before you play, usually around like 3 or 4 gigs worth? I was just curious because I only have a 40gb and its running out of space fast. Is there anyway to get around installing the games before you play them?

A lot of PS3 games require installs to speed up loading times... unfortunately the Blu Ray drive is a bit slow.

If a game requires an install, then you have no choice if you want to play it.

I would suggest (aside from buying a bigger hard drive) playing games one at a time, then deleting the install once your done with the game then moving on to the next.

I guess thats what I'll have to do then:/ I tried buying two different harddrives to increase the space but neither of them seemed to work, I assumed because its a Hong Kong PS3 since they worked fine in my 40gb US PS3 i used to use them for.

For reasons like this it is essential to upgrade drives. My slim has 500gb hdd, i never have to worry about installs ever again. I have 330gb left and 55 retail/26 psn games.
