duh because ps4 isn't installing the whole game, they already said its just a cache.

anyone that thinks 30 gig can install in 30 secs needs their head checked

True, but even if it's not a full install... fact is that the PS4 gets you playing the game in less than a minute, while it's much longer for the Xbox One. Add to that that the PS4 is more powerful and gets better performance/resolution in games, $100 cheaper and more simple to use... well, it does kinda make the XO seem almost redundant in comparison.

That post is just sad
Every one has there own opinions unless theirs is stupid.

Ok, its been over a month now since we've been talking about this. Has Microsoft addressed this problem with their OS being so much slower than Sony's? This is a pretty lame offering from such a respected software company.

MS has been screwing up a lot lately. Software is supposed to be their forte... but then they make Windows 8! I'll never get it. Old saying MS- "If it ain't broke DON'T fix it". Win 7 is the best yet, and better than Vista. then they go backward again with Win 8.

This doesn't bother me one bit. I don't have a ps4 or an xbone. but the install times for the ps3 were quite long as well (if you wanted install the game). Either way, I'm tempted to get an xbone becaesu that's the only thing available at the walmart. it seems that the people in the northwest of BC that wanted the XBOne already got one and the rest of the people are still waiting on the PS4s.
