Microsoft slams PS3's GTA IV install time

A Microsoft press release circulating around the tubes is making fun of the installation procedure that the PS3 version of GTA IV requires.

Specifically, they’re mocking the time the installation takes. Here is the full press release. Keep in mind while reading this that GTA IV’s PS3 install takes a whole five minutes.

"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.

I’m sure you’ve all seen the chatter from the 1up GTA IV Preview on the PS3 install time….just a few thoughts on what you could do in this time if you were actually playing the 360 version from the moment you insert the disc….

· Steal your first dozen or so cars and test out the improved vehicle handling?

· Check out the cool features on your mobile phone?

· Rack up a 5 Star Wanted Rating?

· Have a blast of your first MP game on Xbox LIVE?

· Ditch the tracksuit chic and buy some new clothes?

· Unlock your first GTA IV Achievement and boost your Gamerscore?

….Or just start downloading a film from Xbox LIVE Video Store to watch later – check out the latest batch of arrivals this weekend!"

Hey Microsoft, here’s one more to add to your list: make a sandwich. I mean, as if a whole five minutes is enough time to do ANY of the above activities. Man, Microsoft is really grasping for straws here.
