not been good day for lems, first 50% failure rate confirmation now this

fifa 14 : ps4 - 1.31min, x1 - 5.28min

complete install: ps4 - 8.28min, x1 - 12.20min

http://www.pcgames.de/PlayStation-4-...video-1098699/

x1 size is 8.7gb http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-11-20-all-the-xbox-one-launch-games-and-their-install-sizes

ps4 is 9gb http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-11-13-all-the-ps4-launch-games-and-their-install-sizes

seriously why is x1 so slow? is it the cheap disc drives or hard drive speed? or has m$ completely fu^ked everything up.

The PS4's faster memory helps with moving large amounts of data more quickly, but I wasn't expecting this big of a difference. Wow.

The console with "features" and "content" can't even install a game fast enough lol

and lol mods are locking all these threads but when PS4 launched, we had threads about negative youtube reviews, unverified amazon reviews and my friend said threads open lol.

They've spent an entire generation installing. They're used to it.

Well with all the reported disk problems the xbone is having, it makes sense.

bought 3 games last night, Each one can be started before finishing, but each is different.

nfs~ around 8%

bf4~ 14%

dr3~30ish%

after that start point who cares...

One weird thing i notice it takes minute just to begin to go from 0 to 1%, once it's past 5% it just takes off. I Think that 0% to 1% is some verification system making sure it's not fake copy idk. I pulled up t.v and when it was ready to play i taped the xbox button and bamn!

PS and Xbox have really switched roles this time.

All the crappy stuff I associate with PS3 is now on Xbox One, while all the speed and quality of 360 is now on PS4. I get why Sony worked so hard to improve but unsure why MS made such rubbish?

This was really unexpected. What is ms doing? It's like they took everything that made the 360 great, and scrapped it for the One. Weird and hopefully they fix this with a firmware update.

The reason is it is updating the game at the same time.

So, the PS4 is a LOT faster, and the idiots who worship Microsoft are mad about it.

That's all I'm getting from this thread.

That's a really big difference. I wonder if it has to do with the Xbox One having the disk-reading slow down to lower the noise? This reduces the transfer rate but does it affect anything long-term in terms of plug-in-play? Waiting for mandatory installs is pretty lame on consoles. PS3 was notorious for that stupid crap. :[

Its because Xbox envied the Wii's success. So they were thinking of what gimmicks they could include to get as many non-gamers to buy their console as possible. This time around Sony wanted to get the gamers--staying true to their identity.

I wish people would stick to what they are good at and stop trying to copy the success of others. Envy never works. For example, Killzone Shadow Fall has some serious Crysis/COD envy. So now they have a game that is as good as neither and no longer plays like a Killzone game.
