PS4 Install Times

PS4 Install Times

You can be playing a new PS4 game in 45 seconds or less.

Based on Steve Marinconz who made a test and publiched his results.

Steve’s notes:

  • The installation time were surprisingly  fast.
  • Once you put a disc in the drive, it automatically starts installing
  • The installation time isn’t how long it takes to install all GB of a game, but how long it takes to transfer enough to get the game going. The rest of the data gets copied in the background as long as the disc is in the drive.

Install times for the update and 7 games:

  • 1.06 System Update: 6:15
  • 57 seconds to copy the update from the disc
  • 10 seconds to scroll through the EULA
  • 4:10 to prepare, reboot and install
  • Remaining time is other menus and loading

    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

In total, from turning on the system, it took 14 minutes and 30 seconds to do a system update and install 7 games.
