Between the two console versions of Red Dead Redemption, the Xbox 360 has superior visuals. However, gamers will still encounter occasional graphical glitches.
Well hopefully it helps the glitches im hearing about.
I always do the install.
Yeah, me too.
no wonder why the ps3 have a mandatory install
...that has nothing to do with this. Reading comprehension fail. :(
6.7GB, holy mackeral
I'm guessing you've never had an X360.
That is fairly high I have around 25 Games installed (thank god for the 250GB HDD Lol) and the average is around 4-5GB. But with bigger games like GTA, Fallout, RDR Etc. it is expected.
My other guess is that he has a 20gb harddrive -.-
I'm not sure, but I think all games have to have that option now. The only game I know of that can't have its data installed to the hdd is the first Crackdown... Retrofly, yeah, but its optional. 15 minute optional though...
i think crackdown has been patched to allow installs
good thing xbox 360 HD installs are OPTIONAL
but i always prefer to install my games to HDD because its speed up the loading and give better overall performance and no big deal to wait 10miunts for every install. n my HDD is big enough to fit many games.
If you don't mind re bying your disks they are OPTIONAL. Hard drive space is free, new disks are not. Even a 500GB A 500GB 2.5 inch sata is £80... yeah £80 which is the cost of 2 games, not bad really....
I don't bother installing and I have never, EVER needed to buy a new disk due to scratching or wear.
They aren't optional if you're like me. I ALWAYS install games to my 360 HDD just because the damn disc drive is so freaking loud. Personally, I'd rather wait through the install time than have to listen through that annoying drive spin anytime I play a game.
I hope it's as good as when you install Mass Effect 2. Made a huge difference to both loading times as well as texture streaming. I always install the games I play. Makes them run faster/smoother and makes the 360 dead quiet. It also saves wear and tear on the disc reader.
Soda If you are going to install that much data to your 360 to play a game then you might as well just get the game on the PC (if available) cause you also get superior graphics at a cheaper price and the option for nude patched. :) Just saying...
You can also get ready to spend and extra $500 everytime a new crysis comes out to upgrade your PC. Sound fair to me. /end sarcasm.
@nycredude: Awesome but RDR is console only.
@hay For now... Say that again in a couple of months :P Besides he was referring to mass effect.
but the PS3 install is superior than the 360/PC install because the PS3 doesn't do full installs a partial install is better because the PS3 can read data from the disc and from the HDD at the SAME time, with a full install data can only be read from the HDD mostly soundtrack and movies aren't installed on the HDD on the PS3 cuz these have low priority
I can't tell if you're serious. If you are, then Daaaamn.
@above typical computer noob reaction? EDIT: nevermind, I browsed your comment history and discovered that you're a 360 fanboy fanboys are delusional and only agree with statements that are in the favor of their 360 (or PS3 for PS3 fanboys) COME UP WITH TECH ARGUMENTS IF YOU WANT TO DISAGREE INSTEAD OF AD HOMINEM ARGUMENTS
You really don't need a tech argument. Let say there is 100% of a game installed on the HD on one system and 50% installed on another. So the first machine has videos and data on the HD and the other system has data only installed. How could you possibly think this the hybrid install would be faster. Did you forget the the processor to the hybrid machine has to now control and access both devices thus putting a bit more burden on the processor. Not to mention, the HD is so much faster than a DVD or BD drive that it can pull data from the HD faster than the other machine can pull from both. The BD/DVD drive will be the the bottleneck.
Yeah, but he can't stick his cok in a PC.
yeah me too, Soda.
Installing a game to the HDD is definitely the way to go.
but it increases heat from the hdd > more chanche at RROD
I don't think that's correct Ocelot525. HDD heat is vented out its own casing and not through the console's encasing. Furthermore, heat issues have been from poor heat sink designs and high temperature output by the GPU. The HDD has never been designated as an issue with overheating that has led to a RRoD as far as I know. There have been HDD failures, though, but no more so than your typical PC HDD.
Not really. If anything it decreases it by reducing damage caused by the vibrations of the disk drive and the additional heat the high speed drive on the 360 causes. Also the HDD is outside the console unlike the PS3.
I know Rockstar will fix this stuff but it's sad that both versions had so many issues right out of the game.
Yeah I agree. I have the ps3 version and I think the game probably could have used another 6 months in the oven. The pop in is not as bad as GTA4 though. I wish they would fix the autosave system so it auto saves at every new town. you can travel to three new places and if you don't save yourself if you die you go back to the last town you saved at. Sucks. Also there is way too much loading everywhere you go which takes away from the experience a bit. I kind of wish Naughty Dog would make an open world game in the future.
