Gears of War 3 Install Size Revealed

For those of you who install your games, like me, you might like to hear Gears of War 3 is one of the first games looking to take advantage of Microsoft’s Spring update that allowed for games to use 7.5GBs. Epic is looking to use every last byte of that space, and the game will clock in at 7.5GBs.

DVD-ROM discs allow for 7.95GBs of data. Previously, the Xbox 360 was programmed for only be able to read 6.5GBs of game data, limiting the space that developers could use on the disc. Microsoft heard the cries from developers and finally updated the firmware on the 360 to allow for an extra gigabyte of disc space to be used.
