I seriously hope playstation does away with disc based game installs.

You have a choice, to upgrade your hard drive or to not upgrade your hard drive and then what to delete to make room on your hd

Yeah, too bad upgrading the hard drive requires tools. Another thing the 360 does better, a simple pop out hard drive.

And no, your post is in no way a solution to this problem.

^ On the new PS3 super slim, you just pop off the side cover and there's the SSD ready to be replaced w/ no tools required other than a screwdriver to secure it in.

O no you will need to use a screwdriver, and yes upgrading to a bigger hard drive is a solution to the problem. And sorry Ps3 is much better in the hard drive department. You have to go through alot more hoops to get a 1tb hard drive in your 360

Yeah, really simple. Bluray data access is fine when streaming, but quite slow when it has to seek all over the disc for bits and pieces. Without that install you'd be seeing a lot more load screens - the more the game takes advantage of the storage space (unless its just for video) the more the game is likely to need the install to keep the load times down.

The 360 may not have mandatory installs, but most of us install the game anyway as it can improve load times / texture pop in, makes the machine quieter and cuts down on wear and tear on the drive mech.

That said I will agree that buying a PS3 game, finding you need a system update, downloading and installing that, then waiting for a game to install, and then finding out that the game has an update and downloading and installing that too can be a right pain in the butt when all you want to do is play.

O no, you have to wait longer for load times. See, I can do that too.

And no, it's not a solution because the problem is mandatory installs. I can't believe people are actually arguing against more player choice. I bet if they were making all game sales digital, you'd rather have a choice with hard copies.

It takes less than 5 minutes for the install. If you do not have the time for that... Well then something is wrong.


I have to agree with this fellow.

360 requires install times
and 360 would have like 3 discs for games this size and require you to swap it every 5 minutes

360 does require install times, IF you want to install things. It's not mandatory like the PS3. As someone who likes to play sports games, they're a nightmare on the PS3. 10 gigs to play MLB The Show 12? That's 1/4 of my hard drive space for 1 game alone.

And hyperbole aside, so what if you have to switch discs? You can play for hours on a disc without a problem. If standing up and changing a disc is a problem for you, you need to re-evaluate your life and maybe get some more exercise.

When anyone talks about discs on the 360, all I can think of is Metal Gear Solid 4. That game was 1 blu-ray disc, and it still required you to install every chapter. Worst part? It deleted the other installed chapter as the new one installed. I played through the game once and wanted to do a speed run afterwards. Surprised to find out I had to spend 5 minutes at each chapter again to install.

So you really shouldn't be getting on the 360's case when the PS3 is far worse.


If Gamefaqs gave out awards to ironic and moronic posts you would win both with just this post.

I install most of my games too. Games that I'm going to play often. But if I borrow a game from a friend to just try it, I don't want to have to install it, deleting some of my own data in the process.

Says doesn't need tools, then says it needs a screwdriver... Is a screwdriver not a tool? And I have many screwdrivers, but there are many different types of screws.
