With Battlefield 3′s size, massive maps, and huge details being something that’s unprecedented in certain aspects, install sizes for the DICE-developed shooter has been a hot topic for months.

Well, it’s certainly been a hot topic for the Xbox 360 version, at least; the game will ship on two disks for the platform, as well as featuring an optional texture pack install (which, if not installed, makes the game look “standard-def”).

The PlayStation 3 version of Battlefield 3, meanwhile, has stayed out of the spotlight in regards to install sizes; however, the install size for Sony’s console has now been revealed.

In a recent video showcasing the unboxing of the Limited Edition, it has been revealed that the PlayStation 3 install size for Battlefield 3 weighs in at exactly 2GB (it’s not clear whether the installation is mandatory, or what it entails -- such as the texture pack)

When comparing Battlefield 3′s install size with recent releases, there’s substantial differences. Firstly, RAGE -- as well as Battlefield 3 -- was expected to push console’s limit, in particular its graphics, and thus received a mandatory 8GB installation requirement for PlayStation 3 owners. In contrast, the Xbox 360 version of the game has an option 22GB install.

Naughty Dog’s Game Director, Justin Richmond, has apparently confirmed that a Jak and Daxter HD collection for PS3 is in development, and will be releasing sometime in 2012.

Richmond made the comment during a recent Uncharted 3 press conference in Oslo, as reported by the Norgewian PlayStationSpill (translated by a user at GameFaqs).

“During an Uncharted 3-press conference in Oslo, Justin Richmond from Naughty Dog questioned about a lot of stuff, also the Jak and Daxter series. He clearly said too much when he told us that there will be a Jak and Dakter collection for Playstation 3 in 2012. This package will contain the first three games of the series and all will be upgraded in HD.”

Naughty Dog’s currently busy with Uncharted 3, which releases on November 1 in the US, and November 2 in the UK.

Publisher Deep Silver has updated its release plans for Dead Island's Bloodbath Arena DLC, which had previously been delayed so the game itself could get out the door.

The publisher says that the DLC will now come out in mid-November. It was originally free to anyone who pre-ordered the game at GameStop, and will cost around $10 when it comes out. Bloodbath Arena features four new areas, the Brain Bomb weapon, and lets you transfer earned XP and items into the main game.
