At CES, Sucker Punch explained that while InFamous will have an install, it won't be at the start of the game.
I have no problem with install
me either, if it makes the game better, i'm fine with it. it's sort of weird though how it's going to be installed sometime after the game starts. that's a new one.
I love installs. This is a trend Sony should continue. :)
Installs are a one-time deal. Switching disc's..much like herpes..is for the rest of your life :) haha breakfest.You and your constant editing.
If they make textures NOT pop-in like *cough* Gears of War *cough* than that's fine with me! A couple minute install is no big deal, go grab a soda and a bag of chips and by the time you're back the game is at the title-screen :)
damn you Breakfast!!! lol crap, you edited it? i missed it. repost.
i never know when to take you seriousliy. you GivE reasonable commenTs every now And then. seriousLy though I FE.el that some of your comments could be in better taste. nice talking to you! oh there is a secret message in my comment, sooo.. yeah see if you can find it! have fun!
I like taking breakfasts bubbles away regardless of what he says :)
I don't care about an Install at all for InFamous and It's not like EVERY PS3 game has an Install. For me personally, I would rather have a game that had an install that took a few minutes than to get up and change discs. Every PS3 owner has a hard drive and it's cheap to upgrade to a larger hard drive, so no problems here with Installs. LOL, Chaosatom I totally agree with you. :)
My 250gb hdd in my PS3 says "that is just fine and dandy." My 20gb hdd on my 360 says, "Yaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!!!!11! I got mail! I got mail! Yaaaaaaaayyyyyyy!!!!!"
I found your secret message Ichiryoka! It's: "BREAKFAST IS MY IDLE" JK
Just as long as it's not another 5-6 f*cking gig install, then I'm fine with it.
I swear the mods made so Breakfast can't get any lower than 2 bubbles! Everyone hates him and he always has like 2 agrees and 50 disagrees but he never loses another bubble!
Things is that 360 games don't require an install, so it won't eat up your hard space. Most PS3 owners need to buy another hard-drive because of the installs. Sony must've forgot to add that to their chart :)
Since it's an open world game, I can forgive it.
I have no problems either, especially when its an open world game... Its really the only way to do it.
How many gigs? Anyway I am not surprised since Infamous looks huge. Hope its good
its time to uprgade the old hdd :)
I love how that gets approved as news. ROFL Not having a hard drive sucks balls. Having one is the modern way. Reading off the optical drive is bad, off hard drive is good. Get it? Why do you think PC games have been using hard drive install since the dawn of time? Because it is somehow a bad thing? So sad.
It's the equivalent of a news post that says "XX Wii game uses motion controls" lol.
FACT it doesnt make the game betteer. it makes it so the ps3 can handle the game
shouldn't you be in your cell, capital G? i'm pretty sure it isn't supper hour yet.
seeing all the Infamous videos with tons of explosions and lightning effects going around everywhere with no framerate drops from what I can tell...I think I can handle a 1-2 minute install if that is what it needs. Infamous look a very fun game thus far. The physics look nice with all the being blown around from the explosions. Kinda sad that it appears to be being overshadowed by Prototype.
Actually, it does make the game better. If the PS3 can handle only so much, add the install and now it can handle more, making the game better. Since Infamous looks awesome, we can tell it paid off.
It's quite good. It also shows that Sucker Punch haven't confirmed anything as they haven't decided yet. They will probably have an install, but not at the start of the game. Since it's an open world game an install will benefit the game anyway. Here is the full correct quote from the interview: "Well, we're trying how and where to put it exactly, so it's a very difficult decision for us. It's painful to us as players that the first thing you would have to do is wait for a dialog. Certainly, if we succumb to there's going to be a dialog, then we will do what we can to make... well, that 15-minute install is an absolute non-starter for us. Right now, I can tell you that the game... today, if you took the build that we ran earlier, it would take 4 minutes to get the game fully cached. Now, it's not going to get worse. So the question is how much better can I make it? I think we can make it a lot better, but we'll find out."
Oh? Probably a small one with exclusive games.
ever since installing my 320 gig harddrive, i dont care about installs :)
same here i got a 320 gig aswell, i say for me bring them on as it makes the game smoother. I can't wait for PlayTV either.
installs are a never mind....I do it for the PC...now I can do it with my 360 so who cares....those who dont have a PS3 and wanna whine about something
Good post I agree Sony is awesome and if they want installs then I think installs are awesome too
Go see if you can download an update so that your xbox360 won't be at risk of getting RROD, Oh wait nevermind.
...well the newer models are less prone to it. And the update you are referencing, mockingly, actually exists. It was the NXE update which allows you to install games to the harddrive. Thus making the 360 run as quiet as the PS3 and much much cooler which should eliminate any worries of it RRoDing. Any game I play for a good amount of time I always install first now. Just a little FYI for your fanboyism so when you get into a scuffle with a 360 fanboy next time you will actually know what you are talking about.
I love that you can install on 360 now. You admit that's a good thing for hardware yea? Can you spread the word to your less truthful 360 co owners? No more fud about installs being somehow a negative?
installs are great. Go to any 360 owner that mocked the PS3 for installs. Then when NXE came out go see how many of them went out to buy a bigger harddrive so they could install their games on their 360. A lot I'm sure. Welp apparently others disagree with my sentiments but agree with you agreeing with me. Fun stuff.
Well, you have to admit that there is a difference between mandatory PARTIAL installs and optional full installs. I agree that it is no big deal. I just despise the kind of hypocrisy of people who say mandatory installs are no big deal, but that multi-disc games are bad (even though only a very, very small number of Xbox 360 games require multiple discs). Neither situation is a big deal.
That guy works for Microsoft.
...it's a great story, but you have to go to the source, Destructoid.com, where the Dev said (in full): "Well, we're trying how and where to put it exactly, so it's a very difficult decision for us. It's painful to us as players that the first thing you would have to do is wait for a dialog. Certainly, if we succumb to there's going to be a dialog, then we will do what we can to make... well, that 15-minute install is an absolute non-starter for us.

So the question is how much better can I make it? I think we can make it a lot better, but we'll find out. " Great find shadowfox, but I'd go to the source; it's possible that PS3 Center gave it an exciteable title to get hits.
But this made up headline grabber flies through...
I'd rather Swap a Disc then a 10 min install... Sony need to find away to install as you play... I Know it can be done... We get to watch CGI Movies While levels load now... So Maybe Soon
10 min install? This isn't installing an entire PC game or something. You must not have a PS3. Try 1-2 minutes for the installs, tops. Pretty much the time it would take you to go "wtf? I need to switch disks now?" Scrambling to find the case, taking out disk 1, putting in disk 2, waiting for it to load up. So, yes, I prefer installs over multiple disks to keep up with. Everyone can handle a 1-2 minute install. If you can't then you are just wanting to whine about anything and everything.
Hold on let me swap hard drives so I can play this game...:)
Installs are ok. It's not like they're permanent.
that when u load a certain portion from MGS4 u can not play it because u have to install first....WTF?? MGS4 install uninstall itself after playing it? thanks
Ughh installs. My 60GB is almost full because of installs, and downloadable games off PSN. If GTAIV can run fine without installs, theres no reason inFamous, which is being developed solely for the PS3, should have installs.
Sucker Punch :\
