So a lot of these pop-in issues people were complaining about that others say don't exist is due to installing the play disk? interesting.

Thanks for the vid. I thought it would be a negligible difference. Ok I'll be installing both coz I install everything, pop ins don't bother me really. If it was a concern to my xbox's health then I'd think differently.

Wish R* had worked it better with both being installed though.

Exactly...and to lengthen my DVD drives life. Lost one Xbox through that sh*t already. If microsofts machine was more reliable I wouldn't have an issue playing it from disc but I'll be installing both as always.

It actually does make quite a difference. I'm surprised.

Yeah I'm in the same boat. My old 360 went through two disc drives.

that is the opening of the game, who cares.  It did pop in like that during the opening, but the rest of the game is fine. That was my first impression, i watched it and was like........welp, here we go. But the rest of the game is fine.

Yeah I got myself a new 250g slim last year which is more reliable but still...I won't be taking that risk.

Is this only for Xbox or also PS3? Thankfully the PS3 is pretty silent and nothing damages whatsoever when using bluray, but installing should make the loading faster.

Ps3 only does partial installs of games. not full ones

I lost my Halo 3 disc this way, coincidentally it was the first (and only) time I let my underage brother play the game :p
