God of War III won’t require a mandatory hard-drive installation come March 18, Sony’s Santa Monica studio has confirmed. The game is the second game to use a dual-layer Blu-Ray, the first being Kojima Pro’s Metal Gear Solid 4, but still only requires only 5MB of your PS3 hard-drive. Metal Gear Solid 4 on the other hand required a hard-drive installation before every one of the game’s five acts.

The confirmation come’s from SCE Santa Monica’s Christer Ericson, who wrote in a Twitter update today: “God of War 3 does NOT do a HD install. The 5MB listed on box back is for save game only.”

With a dual-layer blu-ray disc and a promise of running at 60 frames per second most of the time, that’s an amazing feat. More PlayStation 3 developers should take notice and not impose these mandatory installations we see so often.

Thanks, PSUniversity.

      Both franchises are very well known. I think they’re both strong enough to release so close to each other and still do good in sales.
