Johnnnified, He is referring to the mandatory 8gb install. Hopefully it will be less then 30 min. seems it's on the disk and not a online update.

Nobody is asking what the total size of the game is, johnnnified. So why you're posting this is beyond me. As Rockstar has stated the REQUIRED installation is 8GB, what the total size of the game is has not been asked, nor is it the subject of this thread. If you install the complete game to the hard drive on the Xbox 360, it will be larger of course. Or if you purchase the digital version. But the total size of the game doesn't matter one bit to the average person playing off the disc with the simple 8GB install.

To actually answer the question about duration, it isn't known yet. Halo 4 had a ~3.5GB install if I recall correctly, and that took between 5 and 10 minutes for me to install. So, I would expect 10-25 minutes or so.

I'll be off that day and I know that all I will do is play it, so I need to be slightly productive in the small moments when I'm not glued to the controller. Here's what I think I can pull off during the installation:

Take the puppy outside for potty
Fill her food/water
Whisper a silent prayer to the Dark One
Eat a tablespoon or two of almond butter
Choke the purple one-eyed yogurt slinger (rub one off)
Throw some laundry in the washing machine
Crack a can of soda

When it's ready, I'll sink into the old lazyboy prepare to be blown away.

Might want to recheck that, remember that the ps3 utilizes bluray. Which means 25-50GB of space depending on the amount of layers. Therefore if the ps3 version really was 18gb then it wont be a problem anyway. Although the max space for the 360 discs are still around 7.9

Are you thanking me for my contribution as well, or am I excluded? If so, you're welcome.

What will you guys do during your installation time?
Will you sneak one past the Mrs?
Badger the witness?
Buff the bishop?
You want to go into GTA with a clear mind and a light sack.
Looking forward to hearing from you all!

I'm probably going to be playing a game on my Xbox (most likely Oblivion) while I install the game on my PS3.

What is it with you and adjusting the antenna?

Applying the handbrake?
Auditioning your hand puppet?
Arguing with Henry Longfellow?
Choking the sheriff and waiting for the posse to come?
Dating Rosie Palm and her five sisters?
Frosting the pastries?
Getting the German soldier to march?
Helping to put Mr Kleenex's kids through college?

The install should not take that long. An hour at the most.

If I'm not doing any of those things, I'll probably be doing the following:

Punishing the pompous politician
Basting the banana
Saluting Sarah Marshall
Calibrating the skin-wrench
Melting the polar icecap
Serving beef strogginoff
Releasing the hostage
The Five-knuckle Shuffle
Or test-firing the meat-missle..

5-7 minutes from what I saw from streams when doing the mandatory install (ps3)

I could be wrong but it wasn't very long at all

EDIT: Yep People are saying it's a very short install time

It seems that the install time will be relatively short on both consoles. Shouldnt be more than 25-30 minutes IF it even takes that long. Id bet it would take 15 minutes tops since it only took me 30 to install hitmen absolution on ps3 which was 17 gb in size.

That's good that it won't be a long install time, but it's not like a 25 min install time would kill anyone either.

Mine took about 15 min.

Posted on Sep 17, 2013 1:09:11 PM PDT
Mine was about 15-20 minutes as well, with maybe another 3-5 minute of remaining setup once I put disc 2 in. Not too bad other than the anticipation. LOL

Took 10 mins on my old school Phat PS3. Then another 3-5 mins to start the game once it was done installing.
