PSPSPS.tv says: "Mutterings around the web have been hugely critical of the mandatory installs that have been appearing with certain PS3 games, particularly one major recent release by the name of Devil May Cry 4."
why UNCHARTED doesn`t have a INSTALL?
and it has ONE load time for the entire game.
because on every "technological level" UNCHARTED out does DMC4.
took their time and made it right. Just because it can be done, doesnt mean its easy, and doesnt mean every developer will take the time to do it right.
has way too much screen tearing.
They should have used an install
Did you even play the game? It was absolutely gorgeous and the gameplay was fun and addicting. No install was needed and TBH if a dev wants to have an install it should be available. That's what standard HDD's are for. I don't like the sizes currently, but if it ever becomes an issue I'll upgrade my HDD for cheap.
i remember some really short installing, when i first loaded Uncharted on the beginning, but it took only about 30 seconds. And the devs used prerendered cutscene videos to cover up the loadings in the background (yeah i know, they were inengine, but they were definitely prerendered).
I played the game. Worst screen tearing game I've ever played. Towards the end it almost made it unplayable. The graphics were the greatest when it wasn't doing that. But don't deny there isn't a TON of screen tearing. Maybe you never move the camera and you're not playing it right.
Maybe it's not the game, but your T.V. (if it's an LCD or Plasma) not refreshing fast enough. Just a thought, accusing you of anything, so don't take it the wrong way. I played it and didn't have any screen tearing.
I actually had some screen tearing on Uncharted as well. It was a little annoying at times. I hate to say that b/c the graphic and overall quality of the game was amazing. Did anyone have some tearing in Assassins Creed? Edit: just read 1.6 and that could very well be true.
you must be using an HD tv bought at walmart. no screen tearing and this game is as gorgeous as any i've ever seen. look anywhere on the net; you're the only one who has said this.
There is screen tearing, but it was nowhere near the size of a problem that you make it out to be. Unless you play the game spinning the camera in circles the entire time then it should not have been an issue at all.
I own 70" SONY SXRD projection TV. That is 1080p Full HD. There is no TV that looks better for PS3. Now when I say screen tearing. There is screen tearing. Lots.
longduckdong - On my parents no name brand 37" uncharted tore.
But on my 46" bravia X had no problems.
refresh rate? im no TV wizz.
Not sure about the disagrees. I did have screen tearing on both games. But It may be a TV issues.
My Uncharted had No screen tearing.. But the comment about 360 owners and them saying thier version is better.. Ok so they have no load times.. I would rather wait 20 min for one game.. then have to wait weeks because the 360 gets the RROD and or have to go buy a new one.. 20 min install or weeks and the annoying cunstomer service at MS.. I understand that this does not happen to everyone, but it happens to ALOT of people.. Out of 5 of my friends with XBox 3 of them got RROD and 2 of the 3 got sick of waiting for MS and sadly thy bought another 360.. So to me 20 min of install on a reliable system is just fine for me.. out of my 15 friends with ps3.. All with different models 20, 40, 60, and 80.. None of them have had one problem.. Hmm wierd.. or not
Hey, does anyone remember FarCry for the Xbox... Remember the 5 minute intro video that couldn't be skipped because the game was pre-cashing data to the system. How long before that has to happen again? (Aside from Obilvion on the 360) My only beef with installs is that Heavenly Sword is 2.5 GB roughly and DMC4 is 5GB. The installs could be smaller. Other games only require anywhere from 200-600mb. Basically to have a slim back-up for the PS3, you have to uninstall games prior to doing the back-up.
Having to wait 20 minutes to play the game because the machine is inferior. Terrific, Ps3 is like so amazing! Enjoy your downloading while I'm already 20 minutes into the game.
just shows how much of an idiot you are it's not DOWNLOADING because you dont get the data from the INTERNET the INTERNET is a cool place where there are these things called WEBSITES (im sorry but i can only presume you are a complete idiot if you think installing and downloading are the same thing)
Hd Dvd is inferior..
360's hardware is inferior...
You may be already into the game for 20 minutes...but your xbox will red ring in another 20
awwwww, poor lil icewake is bitter about losing another console war.
You just have to buy it off the internet....
A internal 250 gig drive is all you need for now of the PS3....only 1 major game has a 5GB install...and that is devil may cry...
other awesome games have no major harddrive install or load times..Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted...all of these games are using streaming textures for the HD or Bluray or both...
Devil May cry is probably using streaming textures too...but I am not sure they are..
I have to wait 20 minutes to install a game, its supposed to be a console not a pc, the ps3 is meant to be the business yet having to wait 20 minutes to play a game where i can play a marginally better version on the 360 with no install what so ever. I hope that this doesnt become a regular thing with 3rd parties, like people say, if uncharted can do then there is really no excuse
It allows more freedom to do what they want. Don't think for a second that the devs wouldn't do the same w/ the competition if they could. 20 min one time install when you get it is no big deal. Read the manual. Take a dump. You guys make it sound like you have to install it every time you want to play for a half hour.
why would i want to buy a 360 in the first place.(to play a "marginally better version")?it(the 360) has a failure rate as high as 30% and then instead of waiting 20 min. to play i'd wait 5-8 weeks while my 360 is being repaired. end sarcasm- "marginally better"- what fanboy crap. take that to the open zone.
sometimes margins can be negative.
People argue over the stupidest things. Who cares if there is an install or not. The minor inconvenience of waiting? If you hate installs that much, buy a 360 and be done with it. People always have to complain about something
i like PS3, but i think forced HDD game installs are unacceptable. Consoles shouldn't have the boring installs like PCs have, people should just insert the disc and play right away. If a PS3 game has a forced install, people should blame the developers, who are unexperienced to make a good use of the PS3 hardware (or they could at least make it optional).
these installs sound like the laziness of the devs. i sure hope sony doesn't expect 5 gig installs to become common. if so, this would be a major problem.
At least an update wont fry my system. and I dont have constant ads on my theme and I dont have nothing but lag in my games and I have a internet browser and its completly free and If I charge my credit card it wont charge for points just a straight number and I dont worry about my system crashing for no reason and My disc arent scratched and I play dvds and blu-ray with no extra charge and I download movies for free and I pay for a site for hd downloads cheap and call of duty plays better on a ps3 and my system hasnt peaked and has true hd graphics and Im hoping xbots will read this and understand that xbox needs to be sacrificed for the the better good of gaming! RAM MAGNUMS HAS SPOKEN...
Totally agree with the article. I think its a big fuss over nothing.
Creating this installs are the farce of the developer not Sony. As I was testing the difference between loading on DVDs and BRs on the video games I've developed, DVDs load way faster than blu-rays without the knowledge of blu-ray programming. Programming a blu-ray is the key to this. This is what The devs haven't been doing. Specifically Capcom. rCrysis
i don't mind if the installs are significant. i just catch up on my news reading as it installs. i haven't seen any side by side videos of DMC4 on both platforms load so i wouldn't know if it did anything. the loads weren't more than 2-3 seconds though. as long as long as the installs do something significant than it doesn't bother me.
the vidoe reviews (non-demo) show the ps3 loadtimes are faster
ull be half way across a room before the 360 even loads the room up
also they say the ps3 version has sharper textures and the faces look more realistic on the ps3
just though i should say this =P
20 min. Ab workout. Quit crying, put down the cheetos and Mnt Dew and get your fat ass off the couch and accomplish some REAL "achievement" before you spend 20 hours sitting in front of the TV.
there is only like %2 of games need to install. It'll save u more time later.
