I think AOD is going to take up a lot of space when you install it on your computer. You know how other PS2 games that are converted to PC games are really big on the PC. They take up like 3 GB and stuff. So pretend the AOD game. The game GRAPHICS will be wild. It might even take up like 5 GB on your computer or more. So i would get PS2.

Who knows... who cares ( i just got an new computer with 120 gigs) but 5 gigs! Your out of your mind! (btw congrats on becomming a member)... Theres no way in hell a game will ever take up that much space! They run it off of the cd so at most the game takes up like.. at most 10 mbs? I might have even over guessed on that! Sorry but theres no way!

The old games run off the CD and take up very little space.

The new game will likely be different.

Games nowadays give you the option to do a 'full' or 'minimum' install onto your PC...'Full' being better as it doesn't need to access the CD during the game, and thus loads quicker.

But the most I ever installed was "Medal of Honour: Allied Assault" which was about 1.3GB.

Oh and "Druuna:Morbus Gravis"...that was about about 3.2GB if you did a full install.

gta3 which is a huge game takes like almost 1GB.
traod wont take much more than 1GB.
i will get traod for the pc, because i will get better graphics and better performance(like in gta3).

How do you check on your computer how much space you have?? (I use Windows ME, if it makes a difference.....)

You could see how much space the C: drive takes up. It should also tell you the available space if you show it in detail mode I think. There might be a better way, I just don't know it.

When i installed "Vampire: The Masquerade" in full installation, it took up 2GB.

Older games take up more space on cds (like Riven, it was on 5 cds!) but if Riven were to be made today, it would fit on 1 cd.

Newer games are more advanced with tons of character models, fmvs, textures, and accessing those on the cd is too slow for some users. Thus, they have the option to install most of the content on their hd.

(As above but still has PS2 too).

The only console I'd consider getting it for is the X-Box...as it is I'll get the PC version.

My wife has an older computer with 160 GB disc space. I bought it for my computer, but ... well, so I am stuck with 120 GB.

But my wife and I will be able to park AOD on our computers.

BTW, he who dies with the most toys ... still dies.
