Gran Turismo 5 Can Install While You Are Playing

Earlier today we reported that Gran Turismo 5 will offer an optional 40 – 50 minute install of around 6.4GB or so that unpacks as you play the game.

While I already liked the idea of the install unpacking while you play, it seems that Polyphony have done one better. If you choose not to install the game straight away, the game can rather “do it in stages as news areas, tracks, etc. are accessed during normal gameplay” according to the folks over at Sony.

I have to admit, of all the awesome features in Gran Turismo 5, this may just be my favourite – if only because this may start getting used by other developers as well. A game that installs itself over time so that it gets quicker as you play more and more? Sold!

    It is still going to affect your loading times, they are not going to be as long if you do the install up-front in one go, of course if you can’t wait for 50 minutes, like me (maybe) then that is the best option
