Lets all hold hands and say together: All systems and software have problems.
Where's the fun in that?
@1.1 I agree, lets bash the 360 NXE HDD load failure! X360 Epic fail!!! XD /Sits and awaits for a PS3 fiasco to wright something stupid about/
yea and hope that they will fix it by the time it releases
lets just hope they will figure something out by the time the new dashboard update releases
Yeah i think an update will fix this or if not its just a minor problem with a few games hard drive was never gonna be the perfect fix for earlier games as they were never made to run from a hard drive! you gotta remember that! later games may be optimized for dumping to HDD.. not for about a year though at least as games currently in development would be too late in dev to be changed to add changes a bit like why ps3 games are only just getting trophy support even though its been out nearly a year. You people think something will come out and be perfect from day 1 you really don't learn do ya?
i just have one problem with the nxe, the people with the 20gig hd bundle install the games onto the HD wont there be a problem there i mean then they have to buy another 120gigs to install all of there games or some of the games
no they wont half to get 120 gigs because you don't half to install your games if you don't want to
ummm.......i see the HDD loading the game much faster.......
Yeah, I don't exactly see where the problem is.
When he goes out of the mall and confronts the convicts in the car it loads a lil over 5 seconds from the DVD. It takes a lil over 18 seconds off the HDD.
@2 and @2.1 Why dont u watch the video till the end before making comments?! Remember, its better they think you are dumb and be quiet than wright something and clear the ´´He is DUMB?`` doubt!
lol someone woke up with a stick up his ***.
Watch the full video?
hasn't it already been stated that most OLDER games wont benefit much from the install because they have already be optimized for the BEST performance already. but the newer games coming out WILL take advantage of it. also out of all the games that people have tested they had to go all they way back to a 1st year 360 game to find one with a hitch. this could be like backwards compatibility, not all titles work flawlessly!!but wharever!! what ever it takes to put a negative spin on something.
no, older games benefit, newer games are already optimized
this whole install games to the HDD is in part due to the PS3 becoming the lead on a lot of games? just asking not flaming anything to help help your machine run a game is always good! If you have the space i guess
No. Nothing to do with the ps3. It's to reduce drive spin for reliability and noise issues, and provide a speed boost on loads. The 'installs' aren't installs like the ps3 does, they're disc rips that mount an image of the game onto a virtual drive and run it from there.
I don't think there is anything 'virtual' about this - A virtual drive is when your emulating some form of drive whether its a hard drive, a floppy, dvd etc. Here the whole games i just getting offloaded from the disc to the hard drive and is running directly from the drive. The disc remains in the slot to verify you own the game but, its not 'mounting' the dvd, its physically ripping a copy from it and running that ripped copy from the hard drive opposed to the DVD. No different than me installing a p.c game onto my p.c - im not installing it onto any virtual drive, its just a drive. Or were you referring to the ps3 being virtual drives, sorry I wasn't sure after re-reading that last sentence.
Most likely nobody, but MS knows how the implementation is done behind this. Most likely they did the safe route and did what edhe said. First do the physical disc check, them mount the image as the device that the game would normally read from (or at least redirect it). This to ensure there is maximum compatibility. A PC install on the other hand moves files to different directories and registers all sorts of drivers and registry settings. So they are most likely very different in behavior during install process. The PC installation is more like the PS3, if anything....
no and before you ask this wont help with RROD as your 360 will still be using all the same graphical hardware it just wont be using the disc drive as much which wasnt the reason for RROD like 90% of fanboys claim.
ive got a 20GB and ill most likely just install what game im playing most (like gears 2)
Only on deathbox pleasefixme.
