The Time Investment of a Gamer

Gareth Edwards looks at how more and more games require a chunk of our time before we even start playing them! (Assassin's Creed III, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I really hope the new consoles address the issue of installing a game and day one updates. I miss the days when you just pop in a game and press start.

Same I mean I suppose it isn't as bad as we all knew or thought it might be; but after coming from midnight launches with the adrenaline pumping it's an small nuisance.

One of Nintendo's key philosophies has always been to 'plug & play'. One of the more interesting things about the Wii U is that with the added GB of Ram, means the game won't need to install, it's powerful enough to read from the disc.

That's why the HD's are so small compared to the PS3/Xbox. Hopefully it will be a trend we see in the next gen of Xbox & PS.
