How much time will you save by installing Fallout: New Vegas on your Xbox 360 console? Keep reading to find out.
That's why you get these games for PC. Der.
That's why you speak for yourself, der.
It's more worth it to install it on a PC!
yep, just get it on PC. or any game you want thats availalble on pc. why buy a game on console with low res and no mods when you can play the game on pc with 1920x1080 res maxed out with mod support? not to mention it costs 10 bucks less brand new at launch
but there are alot of people who buy a console for the exclusives. There are even games on PS3/360 that are not on PC.
I agree with that, consoles are great if you want to access a whole library right away without worrying about system specs and what not. and yes, there are games that aren't on pc. but in my opinion, if you've got a capable one, why buy on console?
It costs 10 less bucks for the game, but 1000 more dollars for the appropriate hardware to play it at the same level of performance as the 360/PS3.
No one says you can't have a console. But many games, especially Bethesda's style open-worlders, are an entirely different experience on PC. I still play Oblivion because the generation of content simply has kept going strong. It looks better, it plays better, and it has far more support than any console game will ever get. 100% free. Ok well... you still have to buy the game but it's ten bucks cheaper. "It costs 10 less bucks for the game, but 1000 more dollars for the appropriate hardware to play it at the same level of performance as the 360/PS3." Stubborn console gamers, keep telling yourself that lie. Ignorance is bliss, I guess. "1 word Achievements" I have no idea if NV on PC will have any of those. But tbh, if that somehow trumps extending your gameplay by 100+ hours with new content pretty much *guaranteed*, then I don't know what to tell you. Have fun with your achievements, dude.
OMG for fuck sake; not everyone can afford a gaming PC and has the money to constantly upgrade it. I hate it when fucking PC users stroll in and then take a shit on people who use consoles, maybe people who have consoles don't give a shit about how superior PC's are and just want to play the game; even if it's not at maxed out graphics. Some people would rather buy a £200 console and play a good looking game than pay £1,000 for a PC and upgrade it every month to make the game look slightly better. RAWR.
Yep, ill go waste my money buyin Fallout Vegas for my laptop knowin full well the game WONT run on it, Hmmmmm, but i REALLY wanna play New Vegas whats a boy 2-do, i know, ill buy it 4 my PS3 (or 360 if that all i hav) even though i know the game wont run and look as good as the "mighty" PC version Even if i did hav a good enough PC 2 run Fallout Vegas i dont think id bother, PC gamins so 90's, i want the platinum trophy, PC dont do that
your loss, I have nothing to say to the blind and or ignorant
I didn't think people still said "2" and "4". LOL lame
I also like sitting in my recliner and holding just a controller. I am a trophy/achievement whore, too so that is why I get the console version. Don't know why the two above posters have to do a personal attack. We all have our reasons for preferences.
Well.. he did clearly say he was a boy. "whats a boy 2-do" See? :P
@Mista T... then STFU
As much as I love gaming on PC telling people to get it on PC is arrogant. Some people dont know how to upgrade or not willing to spend the money on a new system or a new component. Yes overall the PC version will be better if your using the right hardware. If people only have an Xbox or a PS3 to play games maybe its because they either dont have the money for an Xbox or a new PC or they are just happy with what they have.
waste of time
Not at all. Installing every game you're gonna play to the 360 harddrive decreases the chance of getting RROD since DVD drive will not be able to create too much heat. I played lots of games, from GTA IV to Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 2 on my 360 and whenever I checked the exhaust fans, the air was warm just like the PS3.
Funny you should say that, in which I have to wonder if you were referring to the increase amount of time it takes to load from the disc. Or were you referring to the install? Because if its the latter then I think your comment qualifies for the label of being called an...oxymoron.
based on the article the whole vegas install is one big waste of time.....no real huge differences
Well if have the hard dive space why not? Sure you only save 5 seconds, but for a game as big and as long (that's what she said) as Fallout this adds up and saves a lot of time.
Sorry, sir.. that is not what she said! ^_^
i would rather put it in and walk a way for 6 min once then have to wait like 5 extra seconds every time it loads. Install when I dont want to play and get faster times when i do.
Installing to the hdd helps keep the console quieter, puts less focus on the disc drive, and overall should allow the console to last longer. In those cases, the install is more than worth it in my opinion. Plus, saving a few seconds on load times can't hurt either.
not worth it. only reason i install any game too my HDD is so i dont hear the disk spinning and if i play it ALOT
The time you save for each loading screen will add up in a gigantic game like Fallout.
huh? when i had my 360 I installed every game that i planned to play for long periods of time. i no longer have a 360 and cant play games like fallout on consoles anymore.. i can only play it on pc's.. i'm going to wait for a while before i play new vegas.. with all the pc mods for fallout i'm really not done with it.. unless my ps3 version of games allows pc mods like unreal tournament did.. its pc all the way..
It's worth it to install every game on the 360. The noise difference alone makes it mandatory.
Yup, agreed, I install all the games I play on my 360. It usually only takes between 5-10 minutes. And it's benefits greatly outweigh the small chunk of time.
I install every game I get just because it can be pretty loud when you don't and I've had 1 of my 360's dvd drives stop working on me before so I figure this will lower the chances of it happening.
I agree. I install all my games on Xbox 360 because if I don't it sounds like a 747 is landing in my living room. Not only that but it cuts down on wear and tear of the disc.
For a game like Fallout where I am going to put 100+ hours in. I would for sure install this on the HDD even if it doesn't save much time. I install everything to HDD on the 360..
Of course.. shorter loading times, better performance, quieter gaming..
If you don't want to risk a disc scratch then install it.
I do it for the shorter loading times. Red Dead was notably faster after I installed it.
Just so I can game in silence
I install all my games.
Aye me too, I already have Halo Reach, Left 4 Dead, Force Unleashed, Halo 3 installed to my new 250 HDD, and I have around 18 other games sitting around that I may install.
Does anyone here have any problems with installing games to the hard drive? Every time I install a game to the hard drive, I get a 'Disc is unreadable' error.. Even though, when the game is not installed it will run fine.
I've never had that happen to me. You may have to click whichever button it is, thats ask you if you want to play from the hard drive.
Right. Actually, doesn't it do that anyway? If it's installed, don't it automatically load from hard drive? But, regardless, my game disc does not spin, and I get that error. It makes no sense to me, but I cannot find any info that would cause it.. Also, 'Games on Demand' they alwayssss freeze. Like, for example, I downloaded the 'free' Fable 2.. Yeah, well, I can watch the previews all day, but when I load a game. During the loading screen, it will 'always' freeze. Confuses the hell outta me.
N O I S E!!! another waste of time article
They are really ignorant. Now a comment pertaining to this article: The time that you will save by installing it will add up though so I think it definitely seems like a good idea to install it.
