PS4 Game Install Times: Only A Simple Matter Of Seconds
Sure, games may have to take up a sizable chunk of the PlayStation 4 hard drive. But if you're using a disc, the time required before you can play is absolutely minimal.
And in terms of start-up time when you first turn on the system, it's not bad at all. Kotaku timed how long it took to turn on the PS4, download the necessary 1.06 update, install it, reboot the system, and install 7 games from the discs.
The total time came in at less than 15 minutes, which is great news. They timed the amount of time it took for each game:
- Knack: 32 seconds
- Killzone: Shadow Fall: 0:38
- Battlefield 4: 0:42
- Injustice: Gods Among Us: 0:28
- Just Dance 2014: 0:24
- Madden 25: 0:23
- Assassin's Creed 4: 0:13
It's also important to note that the PS4 automatically installs game data once a PS4 disc is inserted for the first time. Therefore, you don't have to worry about spending hours and hours prepping your new console.
