[email protected] Writes: "As I decided to leave a comment on the Official PlayStation Blog wondering will any MAG gamers have to face the harsh installs that we've been dealing with from the beginning of every beta and Jeremy Dunham replied with a simple phrase:"

PS3 game installs are becoming a thing of the past slowly but surely.

Mista T3175d ago

I honestly don't mind installs if it lowers loading times

TheDeadMetalhead3175d ago

I'm glad. Installs take up too much harddrive space. >.<

Fozzy253175d ago

In saying that, very few PS3 first party titles have a large install, if any.

TheDeadMetalhead3175d ago (Edited 3175d ago )

Killzone, Demon's Souls, InFamous and Uncharted don't have an install.

EDIT @1.7 - You're right. Now I remember. It only took about a minute, though.

Fozzy253175d ago (Edited 3175d ago )

I didn't know Demon's Souls doesn't have an install, but Infamous has a fairly decent one at 1.3GB.

EDIT: @1.6: Yeah, but it's worth it for the fact that there is no load times throughout the game.

cyberwaffles3175d ago

off topic: does anyone know what the latest update is for on the ps3?

i'm downloading it right now but i would like to see what's included in this firmware.

TotalPS3Fanboy3175d ago

but people love installing games on their 360 to keep their 360 from dying.

TheDeadMetalhead3175d ago (Edited 3175d ago )

@1.8 - I don't know, but it's really making me mad. My internet sucks, and whenever I try to download it, it'll take about an hour for it to get to 40%, and then I'll get an error and have to start all over. I'm going to download it to my PC and use a USB Flashdrive to install onto my PS3.

Chubear3175d ago (Edited 3175d ago )

They've never really been an issues with in-house PS3 exclusives. All of them I know of bearly use 50mb (at best) if they used installs at all and you don't even notice it's been installed on the HDD.

It's just something that the naysayers latched onto this in the past with multiplat games cause.. yeah, they'll latch onto ANYTHING to put a negative spin on things yet they LOVE to install on their HDDs and sometimes HAVE TO, to prevent their console from breaking. Uhm, remember when it was said HDDs weren't needed and Sony was laughed at for providing a 60gig HDD out the bat while the naysayers were happy with 20gig HDD (@ best) for years?

I see the comment of Infamous having 1.3gig install and I'll have to check on that to see cause I don't remember that on my PS3 but regardless, game installs have never really been a big issue. Not having a HDD to install your games is more of a legit issue that keeps getting swept under the carpet.

@1.10
What do you mean you're going to download it? The game's on disc. You don't have to download anything except perhaps later patches.

Proxy3175d ago

I'd really rather use a cheap replaceable HDD than the BD drive. Especially considering Sony's history with drive failures, which plagued the PS2 and are not unheard of in the PS3.

sikbeta3175d ago (Edited 3175d ago )

I Really don't care, I only [Høpe] to F!X my Bandwidth to play this game....... see ya in the Line of Battle...

ironmonkey3175d ago

ITS A BUY FOR ME I LOVED THE BETA PLUS I LOVE MULTIPLAYER GAMES AND THIS THE FIRST GOOD START TO KICK OFF THE 2010 ONLINE MULTIPLAYER 360 WILL HAVE MASS EFFECT AND ALAN ONCE UR FINISHED THEN WHAT? MULTIPLAYER IS THE BEST TO START THE TEAR

-MD-3175d ago (Edited 3175d ago )

I TYPE IN CAPS SO PEOPLE READ WHAT I WRITE!

TO ANSWER YOUR BAD QUESTION, SPLINTER CELL THEN HALO REACH, NATAL AND HOWEVER MANY EXCLUSIVES THAT BRINGS. GO TO THE OPEN ZONE.

nix3175d ago

come one murderdoll.. stop being so defensive all the time.

-MD-3175d ago

I have to be when people spout off nonsense... it's so tiring sometimes.

There always has to be some idiot that lists 30 ps3 exclusives then follows it with "LOL HALO IS ALL U GOTTZ!!!!! FIREBOX 360!"

Gets old.

cyberwaffles3175d ago

it does get old, no denying that, but don't let it get under your skin. if you think people are just spouting idiotic nonsense, let them have fun doing so.

bjornbear3175d ago

still they are right, don't be so defensive, gees!

xD

sikbeta3175d ago

"FIREBOX 360!"

Man you did it all by yourself, I never listen to that one lol
