    "Don't install the main (play)game disc for performance reasons".
    Is Digital Foundry going to investigate load times and texture pop-ins and what not?


    Ninja EDIT @ 14:02 UK time: Don't get confused. This is about installing both game DVD's on to the Xbox and not just the the second disc, which you have to do anyway.
    People who buy the digital only version off the Microsoft Store are going to be pissed.

    While I'm here though, I am curious as to why they recommend this.

    There's no chance I'm not installing it though.

    I'd imagine it streams from both CD and HD. I will be really pissed off if I've bought an inferior version from psn for £50.

    They say so a few posts down.

    "An 8GB install is required. For optimal performance, we recommend not installing the play disc"

    "There is a specific install disc with the 8 GB to install on the HDD or flash drive."

    Basically, install the install disc then play with the play disc.

    I could be wrong, someone should try installing the play disc and playing with the install disc :D

    Obvious but impossible if you have a download version. I guess we'll know tonight.

    And if I don't install my play disc my 360 will sound like a fucking jet engine.

    Hurrah. :|

    The original Xbox 360 is louder than a vacuum cleaner as you know.
    There is no way in hell I'm gonna play with the disc in.

    Also, what are the DIGITAL DOWNLOAD only guys gonna do? ;)

    Apparently the excessive shrub detail is over loading the back end hyper threading systems

    I've played 20 hours with the play disc installed and only seen about three things I could describe as minor glitches. It'll probably be fine.

    I'll probably just get over it.

    It's not bugs or anything like that, apparently it's for optimal performance.

    It'll no doubt be explained better than I can manage, but I expect its so data can be read/streamed from HDD and DVD at the same time, and get better IOPs or something.

    That's more than the ANALOGUE DOWNLOAD guys get.

    It's probably faster to load from HDD and disc at the same time. If everything needs to stream from the HDD only stuff might slow down?
