    I sold my wii u and a collection of nearly 15 years worth of old games from various consoles. Took the 320 bucks i made and got a ps4.

    Now i have noticed when installing a disc it only takes a few seconds. Something the xbox can take a hour at best to do.

    So i am wondering. Does the ps4 only install cut seens?, like the ps3. Meaning physical copies take up less hard drive space then the xbox one...cause xbone installs the whole disc.

    Or is the blu ray drive on the ps4 faster?

    I think it depends on the game...
    For me bo3 was installing for a couple of h...
    And yeah it installs the whole game.

    Fallout 4 ate about 50 gigs, and took a while. probably the whole game. i'd say it depends on what kind of game it is, and how big it is

    It installs the whole game, but you only need a small bit of it before the game starts. It keeps installing after you're allowed to start it, but certain features or modes might not be available until it's further along in the install.
