I don't know where but one of the websites claimed an SSD cut game startup time in half...think it was resogun.

Yup, 10 vs 20 seconds.

My guess is it'll be harder to measure but games that stream assets (more and more engines) will see a heck of a lot less texture and asset pop-in as well, since you don't have to worry about mechanical seeking.

Sweet! Number 22 in line. Except there is only a shade over 30 that preordered from the local GS... Some girl waited from 8 am to be first in line and her parents didn't bring the cash. Now I'm waiting for greatness!

Did the 30 day PS Plus come as a code that you entered or what? Curious about this since I'm new to PS Plus.

Didn't pay attention to the download time. But downloaded the entire BF4 game in less than an hour. 33GB or so.

Yes, comes as a code but doesn't stack with a normal sub. So use it first and activate a longer sub on day 29 IMO.

Thanks for the heads up on that. I received a year sub with my bundle and was just about to register it. 30 days it is...with a google calendar notice to re-up 26 days from now so I don't forget.

Thanks TyrantII. Now I'm wondering when to leave for GameStop. Already have the pre-order text that they've got my system, so I was thinking of leaving just before 10pm. Not a popular location, but just don't know what to expect. I also don't want my wife to freak by me leaving any earlier.

Hope the install doesn't take too long, I was wanting to play a little of the campaign of Killzone before sleepy time smile.gif

Best buy. GameStop looks to have about 11 people but they won't say how many they have. I know someone half way in line and his friend wasn't planning on grabbing a ticket, I told him to anyway just in case

Jealous of that connection man! Only have a 12/2 here. I'd be interested to see if it takes you longer tomorrow or Saturday once the flood envelopes.

DICE was able to implement the PlayGo for BF4, so I doubt GG had any trouble as a first party.

BF4 SP can be started with just 600MB downloaded, and someone in the thrad said it took them 3 min to do so. MP you need the whole thing unfortunately, due to the nature of pulling assets for MP. Resogun can be played almost instantaneously as you start the download. I'm betting KZSF SP starts pretty quick as well.

Dude, you're in Boston. I've got a buddy in Boston and one in Prov, both have FIOS and its fast as white lightning gets me drunk! My cable net is 30, but usually is about 22 on a good day.

You've got to upgrade that internet my friend.

Also, funny I know, but I'm a BoSox fan too, all the way down here in Alabama. Grew up loving the Sox cause ain't nothing that a Southerner hates more than Dang Yankees! smile.gif

Dude, aren't you like one of the great few that are hitting their servers? Tell us what your D/L times are a week from now; I'd be interested to know how much worse it gets once their servers are actually under some load.

My local Gamestop manager said they have about 25 in stock for walk-ins at midnight. Most likely a very similar amount at other gamestops I imagine.
