Dear god why do games take so long to install?

I have been installing forza for about 10 mins and it's only at 2%. How can this be this slow and the ps4 installs a game fully in like 14 seconds.

The PS4 installs the game in the background.

The PS4 doesn't install the full game while the Xbox downloads an update/installs the whole game to the drive.

What I don't understand is why both are still using sata II drives.

I think TC is confusing install time with download time. I also downloaded a 3 gig file but it took very little time. I think your internet is really slow. PSN will be the same if you have to download 6 gigs of something.

That is upsetting, TC.

There are quite a few articles and developer statements saying that the PS4 is 50% more powerful than the XBone. Perhaps that has something to do with it?

"I hated this game, the controls were awful," isn't trolling... But you'll probably still get modded.

He's right, though. Forza's 'patch' is 6GB. It downloads that and THEN the disk install starts counting up.

Except for when he tries to update a game as in this instance, which happens in the background as well.
