Next-Gen Thief: ‘There’s No More Loading’

X360: Next-gen consoles are making all sorts of promises, but can we really dream of a world without loading? Thief producer Stephane Roy at Edios Montreal seems to think so.

I really hope this is true. Load times on games this gen were horrible.

Thief Looks Amazing! I cant wait to rob all you taffers.

It would be awesome, but they've made these sorts of promises before (not Eidos Montreal), but I distinctly remember someone saying this about the PS2.

Or was that just that loading would be greatly diminished?

Some games this gen did a great job of disguising load times and some had only one at the start. But some were brutal, look at Lego City Undercover.... The 1st Motorstorm was really bad too, but worth it. :]

Between the PS2 and PS3 the loading times increased drastically.

I just don't think there should be load times for the load times, like in Fight Night: Round 4

You would schedule a fight and then watch a calendar tick away at the days then a loading screen for the training then another loading screen for the fight.

No, Not the PS2, maybe the PS3.

Very true. Imagine the witcher 3 in an open world in which u simply walk and walk and walk...enter buildings...exit...and even fight bosses without a loading screen. The best will be tough games like dark souls. U don't have to die and then wait to get ur 20th shot at it. I loved Bioshock Infinite. ..definitely top 5 this gen but the loading times were terrible...especially if u were trying to get certain gear. I finally platted it.

There is no less loading either!

Hahhaa I kill me... really... kill me!

load times never bothered me, but nonetheless its next gen and technically better so its a welcome feature for theif.

question is, i wonder how many titles would have no loading.

So Thief has gone and stolen loading times...COOL

Pretty sure i heard that a gen ago.

god of war 3 had only one loading screen so it's def possible.
