View Full Version : Note about install

I got home last night and installed all three discs. It took About one half hour to finish and takes up 18.2 GB. Im guessing its imposible to install with the 20 GB HDD.

Just so you know

thats a ridiculous amount. Why did you install it?

18GB for 3 discs is reasonable. All games are better installed (well, except Halo 3). There is less wear on both the DVD drive and the disc involved, not to mention it keeps the console a whole lot quieter. It also improves load times, which for an RPG, is a must.

So it makes the 360 quieter, less strain on the drive, and it loads abit faster :)

lol beaten too it

Thats the way to go if your planning on grinding (and if its like any other FF) spending 80 to 100 hours playing through it.

Why install all 3 discs at once? Just install the discs as you need. Usually I install the disc while I go off to eat or something. No hassle, no wasted time, no wasted space.

Excuse me for asking this n00b question but does installing the game actually make the 360 run quieter? I've never bothered before since I only had a small hard drive and it was filled with Guitar Hero content, but now that I have a 250GB drive...

If it makes a difference I'll totally do it.

Yes, it sounds like your 360 is on the dashboard while playing a game. Entirely worth it just for that point alone.

Excellent, I'll do that now then. Thanks!


WOW. That is so much better. I can barely hear the 360 at all now, what an improvement!!!
