Why PS3 games install

My favourite topic is back…

So I saw an article this morning about why PS3 games install and while it didn’t provide any information we don’t know it did finish on a point I just have to dispute.

So why do they install? Basically it’s because the game can read data faster from the HDD than the Blu-ray drive… that’s it..

But now the guys over at TalkPlaystation.com finish of by saying…

It is understood that in the future, game installs for the Playstation 3 will be a thing of the past.

I have seen absolutely nothing to even begin to think that this is the case, the two examples of games not using installs are COD4 and Uncharted which have been released already.

Ever since the PS3 community allowed the first games to use an install virtually all games now install.

Why? Because it makes the dev’s job easier and since no one really minds (apart from some websites that won’t let it die) they will just keep doing it.

There is now no end to these ridiculous installs and I fear that they may come to the other consoles now that we have allowed it.
