I love playstation more for many reasons, one being not having to install games all the time. Xbox is number 2 for me.
Wait... what? The PS3 is the one that has to install games all the time, not the 360. The Blu-ray drive is too slow to play some games straight off disc.
Ive only had to install gran turismo 5 and Skyrim. I have over 20 games.

Yeah but you never have to install anything to play it on the 360. I'm not sure where you got that from.

Fury I only have a few games for my xbox, forza 4 requires an instal for all of its feature which I wont do til I have a hard drive. Ive heard things over the years about people needing to instal xbox games. Now that I gotta instal something to play it online im pissed..

That's honestly the only game I've heard of that for, and it's for an entirely different reason than why the PS3 has to do it.

For Halo 4, it doesn't say you have to actually install anything, just that it requires you to have an HDD or 8GB flash drive. Which you can buy for $7 on Amazon/Newegg.

Fury I dont have a credit card nor does my family (my grandparents are the only one and they are adamant about not buying things off the internet) so im practicly stuck buying the officaly harddrive for under $200 (Canadian sales tax being 13%) of course I dont work either so its a real pain the ass if I dont have a job in time.

MetallicaDragon - You can buy flash drives elsewhere, I'm just saying you don't have to pay for the price of an official HDD. It just has to be an 8 or 16GB flash drive. Online is always cheaper, but you could still go to WalMart or something.

Wow, all you little babies crying.

Ask mommy and daddy to fork out 10 bucks for a 16GB flashdrive, as a bonus you can use it for OTHER things as well!!

WOW!

I see...It's just a stupid decision made my developers...I know some installation will be mandatory for some games!

But, most of the time, console players are forced to install large amounts of data on HDD! 4GB Xbox 360 owners will have a hard time, won't they?

Gaming consoles should be differentiated by PC counterparts in terms of data intstallation features...

This is excactly why sony is better. Microsoft nickle and dimes you every chance they get because they know the fans will pay. Xbox is most def the "dumb peoples console"

Ouch, Big mistake 343i! I still have 36GB left on my 120GB HDD but it still sucks that you have to install it to play online.

Surely more than 90% of Xbox owners have more than 8GB of space on their HDD. People who bought the 4GB models knew what they were getting into with such small space. They have no one to blame but themselves.

Edit: Wait... why would we need to "install" something that is on the disc in the first place.. of course unless it isn't on the disc?
They have probably realised that streaming something from the HDD improves loading times and can even improve performance. Given how competitive Halo multiplayer can get, the better it runs the better it will be.
