I'm playing Grand Theft Auto 5 a lot and am wondering if I'll get a performance improvement (loading speed/ rendering) if I bought the digital version off PSN.
I'm using a reconditioned PS3 Slimline 160gig model with a 250gig Samsung 840 Series MZ-7TD250 Solid State Drive.
The idea of running the entire game seemed like a no-brainer. But a bit of Googling turned up the following link comparing Blu-ray to standard hard drive performance:
A bit more Googling shows loading comparisons (but not rendering) between Blu-ray and solid state:which shows the solid state loading significantly faster.
Long story short the more I searched on Google the more unsure I am if it is a good idea. I already own the game so spending another $100+ (I'm in New Zealand) on the digital version is a bit of an investment.
Does anyone have direct comparisons between the performance (loading/ rendering) of Grand Theft Auto 5 on the PS3 Blu-ray disc vs PSN install on solid state drive?
Would the PSN version on a solid state drive be a worthwhile upgrade?
