This is possibly the worst reason I have seen anywhere to attempt to justify the 5GB install that DMC4 and Hot Shots Golf need on the PS3.
Apparently according to TheBitBag and Torrence Davis the reason that PS3 owners should love the 5GB installs is because it will reduce noise and wear and tear on the Blu-Ray drive.
Now forgive me if I am wrong here but one of the great feature wins of the PS3 is the fact that the drive is so much quieter than the 360 and if we are worried about the Blu-Ray drive breaking by playing games then the PS3 has some serious issues.
As you may have noticed I wasn’t phased enough about the install for DMC to even post about it, I did however have an issue when it was rumoured that Hot Shots would need this install as well as I worry about this becoming the norm. I want to be able to put a disc in and play and not have to worry about anything else.
