PS3 users can install games to HDD to shorten load times

Posted on Saturday, November 04 2006 @ 15:11:03 CET by

DailyTech reports the Sony PlayStation 3 console will allow gamers to install their games onto the PS3 console HDD to shorten load times:
In an effort to get around long load times with Blu-ray discs on the PlayStation 3, some publishers are looking to install game content to the internal hard drive to speed things up. Two games that take advantage of the hard drive install include Ridge Racer 7 and Genji: Days of the Blade.

In the case of Ridge Racer 7, gamers have the option of using up 5GB of storage for game files. With Genji, as much as 4GB can be taken up by game files to quicken load times. According to Sony representatives, a three minute one time only procedure will load the 4GB of game data to your PS3's hard drive. As a result, in-game load times will be cut from 15 seconds down to 4 seconds.
