These can be found under the "Game Data Utility" folder under the Game icon.
Games from the PS Shop count too.

NOTE: Metal Gear Solid 4 has 5 Acts to it. Each act has its own installation file. These installation files overwrite each other so you don't have to worry about have duplicates or too many. If you can install 1 Act, you pretty much can install them all.

No - I'm pretty sure thats what it installed. I never actually played the game but I actually sat through the whole installation.

/updated

EDIT:
If you want me to put on more installation sizes, please make sure you put the exact # of MB from no one. Better because that's the way the PS3 display sizes for some reason.

Don't forget - if you have a PS Shop game like Shooter or Fl0w. They count too.

Added Blazing Angels 2 and Burnout Paradise. Both of them are under 50MB installations which is amazing considering their quality.

Yep you still need the discs unless it was a full digital download.

Here are some more if you feel like adding them:

Super Stardust HD (148MB)

EyeCreate (9051 KB)

Aquatopia (39 MB)

Mesmerize: Dinstort (134 MB)

Operation Creature Feature (136 MB)

Tori-Emaki (73 MB)

I'm also looking at my installation of Warhawk under Game Data Utility and it says 957 MB. And for Guitar Hero 3: 24 MB.

yes you still need the disc to play. Reason for these installations is mostly to speed up loading times and because the BluRay player is only 2x read, its slow and big textures, shaders, ect need to be installed.

Added the ones Mike posted and edited the Oblivion to GOTY

Did you download the game or did you buy the disc?

EDIT:
What should we put for the games that are downloaded off the Playstation store? Im doing D/L as of now but open to suggestions.

I bought the disc. Havent downloaded any GH3 songs either. Not sure what that 24mb consists of.

As for PSN games...Could start a list at the bottom of the main one, or just mix 'em all together.
