Quite annoying, I thought we were past all this install stuff. If games like Uncharted 2 can do it why cant everyone else? Utilize that core.

Because doing the requires actually making the game specifically for a PS3 system...instead of being lazy and porting over half arsed code from the 360.

(no im not bagging on 360, im hating on lazy developers)

Because most game builds don't hide load screens behind videos disguised as cutscenes.

Just saying.

You just nailed it.

Christopher2787d ago (Edited 2787d ago )

Uncharted doesn't use videos. They are scripted in-engine scenes that still require engine processing. Same cut scenes you see in almost every game out there now.

What uncharted and god of war do behind the scenes with loading data in a constant flux is pretty amazing, but even many first party teams have been unable to do it as well and third parties tend to have enough on their plate when working with two or more console developments at once.

Its better than most other titles like Fallout and others. Or DCUO and Mass Effect 2

OH NO, my 500 GB hdd with 330+ GB free can't handle it!

I forgot about this game. I don't think it'll be all that anyway. Too many shooters. I'm saving my money for BF3.
