Fortune City, Nevada is big and loading it from the game disc is very painful as it will give gamers a lengthy load times. With Dead Rising 2 releasing in North America tomorrow, is installing the game’s data recommended?
i sthis a problem for 360 owners?
A problem? Nah, more like an option. Its funny, I just got through writing another comment on this in another article. Its almost eerie...hmmmmm...
In fact, it's even advisable IMHO. Less wear and tear on the disc drive, discs themselves, and less heat production = probably better life of the console (perhaps more a concern for older models, but still not a bad idea). Not to mention it's just quieter. I install all my 360 games to the HDD for these reasons.
should load all dem zombies even faster
It does, which makes the ridiculous load times even with the optional install make you wonder how bad they are on the disc.
Are hard drive installs normal to have now? Or is this diffetent from a game install.
I am more towards to full game data install since I have a 250GB HDD.
Yeah, I have a 120 gig with around 9-10 games installed and 49 gigs left on it. The largest bit of data I have, I think, is Gears 2, which is 6.8 gigs, everything else is 4-5 gigs each, in data.
goin to have a 1tb external hd tonight. i dont know if the ps3 can read though. can it read 1 tb external and can i isntall games in there?
which model? saw the TB news the other day.. thinking about pulling the trigger on my slim..
dont think so. It installs on the operating HDD
Make sure to format it to FAT32
... Got myself a 250GB Halo Reach Limited Edition Xbox 360.. So space is no problem for me, Ever. :P I don't have the game though. =/
I thought you get the game too with the limited edition :S Edit:Are you trolling? your supposed to get the game too.. http://www.engadget.com/201... ''The $399 price tag also nets you two special edition wireless controllers and, naturally, a copy of the game itself'' @JustSomeLogic Owww ok
Not Reach. I could be wrong of course...but I seldom am
Makes me wonder, why it wouldn't be. I've never heard MS demand devs to make this an option. Must be a "behind closed doors" type of circumstance.
Not happy with this game's visuals the devs downgraded the graphics so PS3 could run it. I wish they would have left it 360 exclusive not allowing PS3 to hold back the game. Now the 360 version suffers from downgraded visuals from the first game and the PS3 version isn't on par with the 360 version. Anyways I always install games and I glad devs are allowing their products to perform better using the HHD on the 360. EDIT FF13 was almost finished on PS3 they slapped together the 360 version in a matter of months(at the last minute) lol. When devs make games at the same time the result are the same outcomes as Red Dead Redemption and Enslaved ETC. I would like to see what PS3 exclusives would look like if they were made for the 360. You can't really scream FF13! when hundreds of other games defeat your defense including Dead Rising 2. Even PS3 devs are getting better results on the 360 when they work on the platform. Even Bioware basically came out making excuses for the PS3 version of ME2 ahead of time although the authors were spinning what was said when they wrote the article.
just like what the 360 did with final fantasy 13 it held it back big time
Gees then how long is the normal load? Are we talking ModNations long cos if so then maybe I was wrong and that the media is still harsh on ps3 exclusives. I say this because I've yet to come across any review that complains about the load times like they did with MNR. . .Then again, I haven't really read any reviews so um...yeah
Full install for me, if I buy it, because it'll be on the PC. It's cheap and both console versions seem to have there far share of niggly little problems. Capcom handed the sequal to another developer right? If so, that might be the cause of a few.
Good luck slouched over your pc on your small monitor. I prefer playing laying down on the sofa 10 feet away from the 50" plasma full 1080p display feeling the vibration in my hands as i kill some zombies. Oh and not to forget the achievments add to my GS.
i pretty much install every 360 game i get while im going to be playing it, then uninstall it when im finished with it. and there is a difference between 'optimized for installs' and just being able to be installed like every 360 game is. Halo Reach for example is optimized to run better when installed, whereas MW2 is just able to be installed, and Halo 3 actually performs WORSE when installed. my copy (360) is on its way to my house as we speak, cant wait to play it.
Hallmark Moment Strange when a poor looking game is multi and runs better on 360, it's the PS3 that held it back. Because it is a poor looking game. Ninja theory made HS on the 360 xbox first, then it was ported to the 360 then ported again to the PS3. http://screenshots.teamxbox... ROFL. Heavenly sword was Ninja's first attempt at a PS3 title. After a long porting process to the PS3. And what engine is it using. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Article is pretty pointless...theres only 1 game in the entire 360 library that I know of as NOT being 'optimized' for the optional install - Halo 3. I install pretty much all my games when I get them. A quiet drive and speedier load times are always nice.
like i said in my last post, being 'optimized' for install is not the same as just working normally from the install with slightly faster loading. Reach for example runs at a better framerate during cutscenes if its installed. other games that are installed but not 'optimized' do not, they just have quicker load times. its a pretty minor difference, but it is a difference. few games are actually optimized for the install. most just load slightly quicker.
