According to CVG
Microsoft have been talking smack about the PS3 version of GTAIV with their sights aimed at the 5 minute install time. The 45 minute Devil May Cry install time caused a fuss which I thought was unnecessary but nevertheless a valid reason to point and laugh. It looks like Microsoft have picked up on this and attempted to instigate the same response for GTA, the problem this time around is that firstly, it's five minutes and secondly most of the points Microsoft are bringing up aren't exactly true. For those too lazy to click the link (people like me) here's the post;
"MS has fired out on an email taking a cheap shot at the reported five minute install time on the PlayStation 3 version of GTA IV.
"With the OXM review hitting streets today, and your own preview impressions which are looking great, hopefully you'll all be a bit wiser as to the ins and outs of GTA IV now.
