does the x360 version have the option to install?

gta4 ps3 mandatory install doesn't bug me, in fact I'm jealous. It's five minutes. If it was just me, I'd go take a piss or take a dump to get rid of body fluids before I do a 12 hour game session.

I want to install my GTA4 360. But still there's no confirmation. I don't care if a game has mandatory install if it's something I'll be playing for hundreds of hours, and that's a given with GTAIV. I want the best experience possible.

Yeah, I believe it does give you the option, which would be a good choice to make! ;D

I like how MS was totally bashing it earlier. It's five minutes... I mean come on.

Also nice job on the official thread at NeoGaf, Himuro. I'm still waiting for my account to be approved.

It's five minutes that players of the superior version of the game don't have to waste.

I don't care if it's 10 or even 15 minutes. All worth it for a seamless gaming experience with no load times.

If I'm getting the option to install on the Xbox 360, I'm definitely doing it.

I'd rather wait a bit more to ( Hopefully ) get some faster loading times, anything helps.

I also need to start using my 120GB HDD on the Elite, not much use for it anyway.

I'm not starting a war, but the verdict seems clear from everyone who has played the game so far. If you get the Xbox 360 version, you get to play using a superior pad, you get exclusive downloadable content, you get access to an online service which has many millions more members, you get a pad that rumbles (without paying $55 for it) and you get a game that doesn't require installation.

If you get the PS3 version, well, you get a nicer box.

The data installing on the PS3 is to compensate for the slightly lower data-streaming rates of Blu-ray.

Both versions will probably turn out with similar load times.

Ah, but soon there will come a time when users of the 40GB model simply can't fit any more games onto their console and have to start uninstalling things when they get a new game.

Isn't that the same for the 360? Isn't that the same for PC? What the fuck are you trying to get at Neil? Stop trying to provoke a console war.

Precisely what I was thinking, a huge oversight on Sony's part if you ask me.

Not at all, PC users nowdays have 200GB ++ Hard drives, and the 360 doesn't require any XXGB installs - their hard drives are used for game saves and DLC.
