WANNAGETHIGH2918d ago (Edited 2918d ago )

Dont u mean will Be installing. :/

NukaCola2918d ago (Edited 2918d ago )


I meant installing....thanks, sorry for the error

MaxXAttaxX2918d ago (Edited 2918d ago )

It must be pretty important to some. It's not like it'll change someone's decision to buy a game. People will figure it out when they put the disc in.

GraveLord2918d ago

That should install pretty fast. Infamous 2 was a gig install and it took less than 1 minute.

Redempteur2918d ago

there was an install for infamous 2 ? i really don't remember ... when you have a 320 gb PS3 you don't really care about that

OpenGL2918d ago

That's not technically possible because the PS3's Blu-ray drive reads at a maximum of 9MB/s, but I get your point.

A 1.6GB install should only take a few minutes which is not a big deal.

TopDudeMan2918d ago

It's on the disc, you don't need to download it.

dark-hollow2918d ago

Not bad compared to rage.
I wish every game with installs would have awesome install screen like the MGS 4!

MariaHelFutura2918d ago

Yep. I enjoyed watching that screen more then I've enjoyed some games this gen.

saladthieves2918d ago

Some games are actually creative. Heavy Rain for instance teaches you how to make that origami figure while the game installs. And the cool thing is the time you finish is precisely the time the game finishes installing.

Iroquois_Pliskin2918d ago

I never liked watching people smoke.... Snake´s an exception, he actually looks badass smoking

Iroquois_Pliskin2918d ago

Ironicaly cigarettes have saved Snakes life more than i can count...

Sure is I've been wanting to know this for sometime now.

Rageanitus2918d ago

because the xbox fanboys try and make game installs seem like a bad thing.....

Kurt Russell2917d ago

I install my games onto my xbox too... shock horror!

Fishy Fingers2918d ago

Smaller than PC, bigger than xbox..

You know what that means... That's right, f*** all.

ShaunCameron2918d ago

Damn. They delayed the PC version.

OllieBoy2918d ago

That's nothing compared to RAGE's ridiculous install.

And I bet AC has a lot less texture pop-in.

CloseSecond2918d ago

Funny, when I pointed out the texture pop-in in pre release PS3 rage videos PS3 fanboys claimed bull$hit. I just wish more gamers could take a step back and view things objectively.

Pintheshadows2918d ago

I didn't. I fully admitted it, it's particularly bad in the Dead City. I still liked Rage though so swings and roundabouts.

Anyway, this is an inconsequential install.

PixL2918d ago

Funny thing but I had a lot of them on PC, too. I know, my GPU is old but anyway faster than the chip in PS3.

gamingdroid2918d ago

I wonder if anyone tried Rage with a SSD. It should allow the pop-ins to load faster.

That said the solution is to just have plenty extra video ram.
