The heck, PS3 DMC4 requires 25 min hard drive installation?!

Forums - Sony Discussion - The heck, PS3 DMC4 requires 25 min hard drive installation?!

So, not counting any downloadable games or content for games like rockstar (Metallica pack of 140 megs), after installing Virtual Fighter, DMC 4, and a few other games, your 20 GB ps3 will play a grand total of 6 games until you uninstall one.

Please read that with a straight face and tell me that's a good thing. I'd love to hear it. Honestly. Because the ranting and raving and swearing going on in my mind is phenomenal, and I need some pure good old fashioned IQ 40 shocked you recall to breathe internet posting to release it.



See Ya George.

God, all of this tech talk is killing me.



I think people seem to be taking this a little too harshly. The hard drive space could make it's load times shorter than those of the 360 version (although the PC version will likely be much faster than either).



@ Naz

I read somewhere it said it removed load times completly, I would guess that would be while you're in the game.



Wow, 5GB and 25 minutes... That's kinda obnoxious.

Oh well, if it reduces load times to near-zero while the 360 has long load times, I will consider getting the game for PS.

This sucks for owners of the 20GB model, though. If more developers start thinking that this kind of stuff is okay, moving/deleting data could be a real pain in the ass.

Exactly what Fuzzmosis said. If this trend continues, you'll be able to play 8-10 games and then need to upgrade your hard-drive. What does this sound like? Oh yeah, A FREAKIN PC.

What's next, videocard upgrade required to play Killzone 2?

Yeah, but PC gaming is on life support so no one cares.

25 minutes isn't that much of a problem. Besides, after that, I can enjoy unhampered gameplay.



PC gaming isn't on life support, that's a common myth. It's just a different market that sells different TYPES of games.(Indie games, MMO's, RTS games and a thriving casual market)

I'm beginning to think that the PS3 could have used some sort of fancy file caching system for the games instead of traditional 'installation', so that if a game hasn't been played in awhile and the cache is almost full, new games can replace the cached files of the old one. Heck, the 360 does this, so I'm sure the PS3 could too.

Uh, most PCs come with hard drives above 300GBs even for the cheapest models today.  The largest games take 15GB of Hard Drive space at most.  Most games are around 3-4GB or HD space.  You can also buy a 500GB external hard drive for the PC for less than Microsoft charges for a 20GB hard drive upgrade for the 360.  Not to mention you can build a PC for $500 that easily runs every game out or coming out in the near future on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with far better graphics, resolution, and framerate.  So don't degrade the PC by comparing it to the consoles.
