Sony Assures Gamers That Future Game Installation Times Will Double by 2012
Sony spokesperson John St. John released a statement today that future Playstation 3 game installation times will double by next year. "Sure, Xbox 360 and Wii game installation is practically instantaneous, but we like to think that our install times reflect the quality of our games."
Mr. St. John also offered suggestions for gamers on what they can do while waiting for their games to install. "Take a long walk, go see a couple of movies, spend the day at the museum," he said. "Maybe when you come back, the install will have completed. For future games, Sony recommends taking a vacation..."
Reviewers have pointed out that the Playstation 3 technology is far superior to the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii, so long installation times should not be a factor.
Mr. St. John offered this rebuttal. "Yes, but can they play Blu-ray movies?"
