PS4 vs Xbox 1 – Install Time


There was a test done recently by an online game magazine regarding the start time for the new game consoles Playstation 4 and Xbox One. These are some great guys and have been willing to share the results with all of us, but since the video was not in English I figured I would share it with you.

Now this is a test to see the load time of a game from the time of install all the way till you are playing… and for us Playstation fans the results are not at all surprising. the Playstation 4 CRUSHED the new Xbox.

Now this was to be expected, but it is nice to see someone do the work necessary to prove it to all of those who are still wondering what console will outperform the other.

From starting the game to playing the game (watch the video here)

  • Playstation 4 : 1 Minute and 31 seconds
  • Xbox One : 5 Minutes and 28 seconds

Certainly impressive, and a sign that the hardware in the PS4 is simply unmatched. And we see that again with the next test…

From full install to playing the game

  • Playstation 4 : 8 Minutes
  • Xbox One : 12 Minutes

And again the new Xbox was dominated.

Some of this may have to do with the fact that the PS4 Blue-Ray speed is 6x while the new Xbox console is only 4x.
