Gran Turismo 5 Install Times Raising Some Eyebrows
There was a bit of a ruckus across the internet this morning after a post over on GTPlanet. It seems that the full install for the retail version of Gran Turismo 5 takes around 50 minutes, and consumes about 6.4GB of hard drive space.
Lost in all the hoopla was a tweet from Kazunori Yamauchi (that’s a translation) that said GT5 has a 256 MB install option.
Furthermore, Sony has released a statement saying,
GT5 gives users the option of an install. This makes loading times throughout much faster but is not a requirement when first playing.
So, the sky is not falling. Also, if you really can’t take 50 minutes to install a game, you might want to re-examine your priorities.
