Prototype PS3 Install Glitch May Prevent Play

Similar to the issue that plagued Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction back in 2007, those who pick up the PlayStation 3 edition of Radical's just-released super-powered action game may find themselves unable to start the game due to a bug.

The problem can crop up when users attempt to install the PlayStation 3 version, with the game sometimes telling folks that they don't have sufficient space to install the necessary files, even if they have more than enough free space. nope

A patch to resolve the situation is in the works, with publisher Activision advising those afflicted to "change the available space on your hard drive by 700 MB" by either adding or deleting content. "We apologize for any inconvenience," noted Activision.

The PC and Xbox 360 versions of Prototype, which also hit this week, are not affected.
