Everyone knows that there is an optional data installation in Gran Turismo 5, but according to Sony, downloading it is highly recommended.
Ok, not the biggest gamer and certainly not the biggest racing fan out there -- But please explain this to me like I'm a two year old. I got GT5, same day delivery off Amazon, now what will this install do exactly? Will it cut loads down on the game because I heard, and this was from Kotaku by the way, that the levels took 1 to 2 min to load. Is that true? Will the install help this or cut it in half?
When you play the game and the data is not installed, it is automatically installing as you open up menus. To reduce that, sony recommends to download everything
I have never seen or heard of load times taking any more than 30 something seconds. On Topic: Why is this news???
Well, let's see, maybe because Sony wants gamers to have the best gt5 experience and so they're providing them with this information...that's why it is news
i got the game in my PS3 right now and its updating :) and i'll install everything its okay i got alot of space
Regardless of load times, its always better to install games as it prolongs the life of your drive.
"Installing it will reduce the load times, and stream the game more smoothly. Before downloading it, make sure that you have at least thirty minutes to download the data."
What exactly are you people disagreeing with? How stupid are you people? There is nothing to disagree with in my post, just a simple question. That's it. There is no disagreeing. Are you disagreeing with my question? I don't get it. Why are the users here so ridiculous?
Perhaps it's the fact that the answer to your question is in the article itself. Perhaps.
That's N4g for you.
"Perhaps it's the fact that the answer to your question is in the article itself. Perhaps. " HAHA Perhaps that's exactly what it is. And he has the nerves to call other people stupid. Urhhh durr, what happens if you touch waterrr? Urmm durrr I heard you get wet
It will take away load times pretty much from what i understand. Sure it will still load but wont take long at all. Also I was assume this is better for your console. As then the Disk drive will not have to read off the disk so much. I would install it all right away. I really dont know much honestly besides it will cut load times down probably a good bit and be good for the console itself.
who will play gt5 for more than a week so means everyone who buy lol INSTALL THE GAME and play the game the best way and the way it was meant to be played
Ill b installin it, i aint lazy, much
I wonder what they reveal, Sony twitter about something coming, a big announcement related with Gran Turismo 5. This week or next week.
i got a 500 gig so its no big deal.
no big deal for my CECHP 160GB either, unless you have loads of rockbandsongs/rippedmovies i dont see the need for a hdd that big
I have a 500gb HDD in my PS3 with 289gb of free space so install it is for me.
Yeah, I've got 120 gigs free currently so I can easily afford the install.
We be rolling with are big a$$ HDD`s i just put a 640GB in mine with 418GB left.
Yea well i have a 120gb HDD with 32Gb left and I'm still installing it. :P
400GB free. 6.5 GB is nothing.
Even if I have no space available, I'm deleting other games to make space.
Got the space and time. Non issue.
f*&*K! /rageface I have to install the game!? /ragequit /slashwrist /s Jokes aside I've waited 5 yrs for the game. I can wait a few minutes np. 48 more hours... maybe I should just sleep til release so i just dont think about the game constantly.. its killing me. :D
If you can sleep soundly at all. I can't sleep from all the excitement thinking that I will be playing this game in less than 2 days.
I'm sorry where's the part where its "highly recommended" by sony, I just saw an optional install screen that shows what it does.
You know what really annoys me? Improper use of the word "Download". This made it sound like you have to waste bandwidth downloading an 8GB update. I hate when people say "Download this file onto a memory stick" when they really just mean to transfer it over. There is my complaint for the day Lol. kthx.
is the file 8gb? omg thats ganna take long to download.
Look at the comment above yours and your question will be answered, that is if you think you're going to have to download the 8gb over the internet and not just off the GT5 disc.
I wish all the PS3 games can be installed to Hard Drive cause slow frame rates is not why I bought a PS3 with a big HDD for.
you think slow frame rates are affected by installs? i don't think so. loading times on the other hand are effected by installs
I bet they do.
Spend those 50 minutes on N4G, bitching about how long it takes to install. Then play the damn game and carry on with your life.
That or go out and run or something. That's probably what I'll use that time-slot for.
If you want the best experience just install the game it really isnt a big deal
Not a problem. Won't be a problem for my 160GB Slim. Can't wait for tomorrow...just shame the work load is a bit much..-_- damn
So its like sticking the tip in and in a thirty minute time period youll be balls deep... Im gonna play with it first just to get this feelings out of my head then ill go make a sammich and let it do its thing,. Then hopefully it'll be for me' im eondering if i should rip out the 7200rpm hard drive and put an 11,000 one so it loads faster, im scared of it overheating
how much the game size in the blueray disc ? .. can some one tell me ? . please :) ..
I only got 40 gig and backed up save games to a stick got rid of all apps have 13 gig left for install just scrape by .
