Solving the Case Behind Mandatory Blu-Ray Installs on PlayStation 3

We all hate mandatory installations, not just because it takes up time, but it takes up valuable space on our PlayStation 3's.

Devil May Cry 4 was released with a mandatory 5GB 20-minute installation and fans were pissed. Christian Svennsson told MTVGamer that Capcom didn’t realize the issue would “blow up.” He says the company will take the response into account for future releases.

Turns out, after quizzing several developers, that the reason is Blu-Ray. It's Blu-Rays "fault" because it's different technology than a DVD, not that it's slow. The issue comes from the reading differences of DVD and Blu-Ray. DVD Drives read data at differing speeds while Blu-ray reads at one speed. That means if you add more data onto the disc, the loading times will be longer. Thats when installations were thought of.

Hopefully, this will be gone in the future.

Oh yes - Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

I was going to mention Uncharted because the game NEVER loads after the first time you boot it up.

Either way, developers are going to have to figure this out in order to really take advantage of the Blu-ray format.
