Microsoft Makes Fun Of GTA IV PS3 Install Time

A few days ago, it was revealed that the Playstation 3 version of GTA IV requires a 5 minutes installation. Today, Microsoft fired a cheap shot by send out this email.

Here is what Microsoft had to say:
"Just a few thoughts on what you could do in this time if you were actually playing the 360 version from the moment you insert the disc...."

"Steal your first dozen or so cars and test out the improved vehicle handling?
Check out the cool features on your mobile phone?
Rack up a 5 Star Wanted Rating?
Have a blast of your first MP game on Xbox LIVE?
Ditch the tracksuit chic and buy some new clothes?
Unlock your first GTA IV Achievement and boost your Gamerscore?"

"....Or just start downloading a film from Xbox LIVE Video Store to watch later - check out the latest batch of arrivals this weekend!"

It is up to you to comment on Microsoft's email.

first: MS kinda sux, but they do have a point here xD not to mention the Devil May Cry Thingy LOLsecound "rofl, 5 minutes is a lifetime, stupid microsoft. they forgot to add that in that 5 minutes u can get a RRoD and then u cant do sh!t"In case you haven't notice PS3 is already having problems of its own and in the case of the RRoD MS knew what it was was just to stubborn to admit it, but in Sony's case they dont have the slightest idea yet xD

I'm far from being an xbox360 fan boy BUT ms do have a point there. The only thing is that, whether you like it or not, they have more games and the ps3 is more of a media player than an actual game system. I'm getting a ps3 just for MGS 4 and can't see any other title (exclusive) that can justify shelling out so much money on a system that I wouldn't use much if it weren't for MGS 4.

Microsoft are pathetic, I own a 360 & PS3. I've preordered GTA4 for the 360 just because i know more people with live. There's alot of stuff i could do in those 5 mins of installing it on the PS3 such as trying to get my 360 to connec to Live without having to pay out another £60 for the wireless adapter or watch a Blu-ray movie..Oh wait i can't.In my opinion PS3 is superior to 360. Microsoft will never admit it though.

while I hate microsoft lots, all every console equally I think that the Ps3 fails just for this reason. sure its minor, and microsoft are just being d**ks, but still the selling point to a consoles always been there price, and lack of a install... with both those starting to disapeare consoles are being pointless

congratulations microsoft for picking a system with no future! Haha Oh wait what was the big deal a year or so ago. Oh that HD-DVD would obviously win your all idiots. PS3 is the future and the real next gen console. So a game that takes up 50 gigs on a single BluRay disc (PS#) must be worse than a game og 8 gigs on HD-DVD. Oh yeah that sounds right the difference is only about 40 gigs of in game detail and animation. Your all idiots xbox lovers

There is about 40 % chanse an 360 gets RROD.There is about 3% chanse that a ps3 will get its killing blow error.Turned in my 360 5 times this year (yes, some people get fast service from MS if they b***h enough).No problems with the PS3 sofar this year even though its on all day and night.Oh, and for those who are whining about a lack of titles for the PS3.There is like 120+ confirmed PS3 exclusive titles being made and about 13 that might/might not be ps3 exclusive so stop your b***hing and get some more knowledge before bashing something.kthxbye
