Thread: Gran Turismo 5 Has an Optional 40-Minute 6.4GB PS3 HDD Install

    I think we need to hold our horses with GT5. Even Need for speed: Hot pursuit is unplayable at this moment, so i think that we jailbreakers are not able to play GT5 for some time. I bet that the protection of GT5 got changed the last time there was a delay for the game. Makes me want to buy a second ps3 for GT5 alone.

    The whole disc with multi language will be something around 40 GB's (rumors).

    6.4 GB is nothing compared to other backps we have on our HDDs, and I have 500 GB waiting to be used for any game that needs internal installation.

    one thing that irks me about backup managers is that you must perform certain ps3 data hdd installs in addition to ripping the game to the internal/external hdd

    The only disadvantage is wasted HDD space. But if somebody want to reduce wasted space, then it's possible to delete original files from BD rip after installation. I've did it some time ago, and most games were working after this cleanup
    What I was trying to say is HDD Seek + BD Seek is ideal, using all of its available bandwidth. If you have it on a backup manager, and you install it to the HDD from in game, it will be loading the backup manager HDD data as well as the in-game install data, slowing things down significantly.

    HDD Seek + HDD Seek is slower, and more strenuous than HDD Seek alone.

    I've noticed no loading performance loss even with forced hdd install rips compared to loading from bd.
