No mandatory install for Uncharted 2

Best make that cup of tea first then.

Good news, time-poor fans of rollicking action adventure games - there will be no installation required for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

That's according to Naughty Dog's Christophe Balestra, whose Twitter page states: "Uncharted 2 does not require any install." Just like the first game, then.

However, a previous tweet by Balestra confirms, "Uncharted 2 is going to be bigger on disc than U:DF." They're "not going dual layer" though.

Uncharted 2 is due to launch in the US on 13th October. There's no word on a European release date yet, but we'd bet Drake's entire Fortune it'll be here in time for Christmas.
