Nice let me know how the load times are compared to the BD.

Doubt it will help with the graphical issues, but It might help with the frame rate,  
I wondered why there was no Install, DMC4 took ages to install 4 gig,  
And it has the same type of gameplay,  
 I hope SEGA have learnt their lesson.

Other games have done similar installs since then that have taken up half the time.  This will be Sega's second PS3 game with an install option (First being Valkyria Chronicles).  Hopefully they realize that it should be in all PS3 games.

I doubt it will improve the framerate. Real-time rendering data has to be in the RAM completely anyways. 
But it probably will improve loading times.

I heard it was Sony that added the patch, not Sega.

same here, we should thank Sony for the patch.

Bayonetta has been praised beyond belief for the Xbox 360, but for PS3? Not so much. Most gaming websites have rated the Xbox 360 version much higher than that of the PlayStation 3 version. However, with loading time issues, screen tearing, and the occasional slow down, it makes sense why. Now, it makes even more sense that SEGA announced yesterday that they were releasing a patch for the PS3 version of the title.

Although, in a twist of events, it’s not actually SEGA who has created the patch. It was in fact made by the people at Sony. The update comes in at a 135MB size, and once downloaded, will allow the user to install Bayonetta (4.5GB to your hard-drive). This, according to SEGA, will reduce loading times, plus the problem of screen-tearing.
