Oh god, new report says a lot of ps3 games need to be installed in 20or60G HDD. 'cos 'this is a time-saving option'. so how big is enough for hard drive? An average space required is 4G.

Check this out.

Indeed.
Also, if every game had the option, i would only do it for games i would play reguarly.
For example, if i had 2 games, resistance and sonic, i would put resistance on the HDD as i know for certain i would play that more than sonic.
Furthermore, considering the dropping prices of HDD's in this present day, space isnt to much of a concern.

a three-minute one-time-only procedure available from the game's start menu Huh? 3 mins, 1 time only procedure does that mean once you run the game it only gives you 3 mins to select the option then it will be gone forever. Or does it mean if you install it, it can't be deleted. Or if it can be deleted, you don't get the option again?

It means that when you first load the game up it will ask you if you wish to install. If you select yes then it will take 3 mins to install. Once you have installed then you won't have to do this procedure again unless you delete it from your hard drive.

No it doesnt take 3mins to install! Its 30mins! The information was on news4gamers.com linking to an article like a week ago to which I think if you used the search button was already talked about. To be fair I can endure probably 15secs of loading on a game like Genji, I couldnt be sitting around for 30mins installing a game just to get a 4sec loading time. However if Genji takes 15secs how long does Resistance take?

No where does it say you install the full game...Even if you could you need the disc since it would need to verify that you own the game...Although there are 'fixes' for such things on the PC lol. But basically no you only install part of the game so it loads quicker.
