Facade, I read something recently that suggested the bluray drive could be a bottleneck, though I can't find it now. A test was done on some games (both disk and digital), saved to an SSD. When saved to the SSD, everything was quicker. I would honestly prefer to own a physical copy.  If it is true that Destiny, or any PS4 game, runs the exact same on both digital and disk (with an SSD), I'm going back to a physical copy.


Phantom, I completely understand why most people don't see the upgrade worth it. To me though, a 5-35% boost across the board is significant. Boot up time is one of the more affected areas, but nothing is made worse. When it comes to technology in general, I always prefer quicker over slower. I will only have a handful of games installed on my PS4. Space is not an issue for me. I also can afford to buy the upgrade. So similarly to upgrading my phone each year for the faster processors and better components, installing an SSD is important to me.

You are on to something with your seconds and minutes saved. It has been found that people who regularly use technology in general, waste many hours, sometimes days of their life each year while waiting for technology. You calculated the boot times alone, but factor everything together, and those numbers increase. Factor in all other technology in your life, and the rise much more. I love fast technology  :)

All games run off the HD.  I think the disc is only used for authentication after install.

Yea all games are fully installed to the consoles now.
So it will be the same no matter what. The discs are now used for "authentication" to prove you own it.

As for Destiny, I have had the LE preordered since it was announced.  Had the regular version preordered since October, but have since canceled that one obviously. 

Ended up netting 6 beta codes for preorders and got an additional 2 sent to me by Sony because I was in the Alpha.  I felt like Oprah when I was giving them away lol.

I am pre-ordering Destiny after hearing about it non-stop from friends. Will there be translators on day one or will we have to find one that works?

Halo 4 ST worked fine for me.

Destiny is one of the biggest games out this year.  I'm sure there will be an ST quite soon..

I have no doubt there will be translators.   My buddies are hitting the midnight release and i was thinking about doing the same.   I don't really care to get the game ASAP if i won't be able to play it effectively. 

I was just wondering how long it takes to release translators after a game is released.

Sweet, thanks. I'm definitely going physical now

I'm hoping the Gamestop by me does a midnight release. Will then be playing this game for maaany hours straight.

I'm anxious to see how much better a tuned ST is over the Halo 4.

One of my buddies took that day off of work.  He fell in love during the beta and talked me into getting it.  I only play cod and didn't play the Destiny beta so it might be a train wreck.

I think it only takes hours mist said.  Assuming that they get the game on day one or possibly earlier if they're lucky, it could be available around launch.

I took off work too lol. The beta was the most fun I've had since Bo2 came out. I play only CoD too, but once Destiny drops, I'll probably do 90% Destiny, 10% AW.

CoD to Destiny was the biggest shift I've ever made. Hip aiming feels completely different, and takes some getting used to. I had never played a Halo, or anything from Bungie. The first couple days in the Alpha was a consistent .5-1.2kd. Veeery frustrating for me, since I'm used to played pretty well on CoD. After the aiming mechanics set in though, it was 1.5-5kd most games.

Glad you were talked into getting it. Destiny is a ton of fun  ;)

It'll be at least a week after launch.  4 consoles to consider, folks.  He has to get physical copies for each system, set the trainer, let it do it's thing, do his wizardry, etc etc etc.  And the trainer needs almost a day each for both hip and ads for each specific system....you do the math.

Halo 4 ST worked fine for me.

Was this for the Xbox One?
