Preorder cancelled !!! that's ridiculous is this the so called next gen, 15 seconds!!! i feel betrayed by Sony /s
dude are you really serious, its 15 secs not 15 mins
notice the /s at the end of LeonhartX post
!5 seconds I have to laugh, I remember the commodore 64 and spectrum days loading from tape, we couldn't even imagine something loading in 15 seconds. We certainly had a lot more patience back then lol.
@Amiga-man...I remember that too. Tape drives could easily take 30 min. to load. What did we do??? Waited!!! Then played forever before attempting to switch games!!!
Your being tooooooo clever. But you know that. LoL
It was a joke..
The users on this site are damn stupid.
Blu-Ray disc player speed of both the PS4 and Wii U is 6x. The Xbox One is only 2x, meaning Killzone would need 45 seconds to load up, if it were strong enough to run it...
People won't read your whole post.
for those who are still asking: is it 15 seconds to start screen, or 15 seconds to the gameplay: "15 sekunder innan man är igång och spelar" It means "15 seconds to the Gameplay".
dude, are you serious? you don't have to write the '/s' at the end. it's obvious you were joking. I guess some people are thick.
Also thanks that Killzone shadowfall has remove all the pre-screens so you just go into the game, thats great
That's not just great that's awesome! In fact. This is revolutionary to the same extent of Star Wars movies having credits @ the end.
Haven't read the article but does this mean Sony have got rid of all the silly epilepsy, Move, & all the other warning & information crap that loads before every single game??? IMO that was by far & away the worst, most annoying part of our current generation of gaming!
This is,some of my fave news of late ... Sick of waiting 30 sec between every screen on gta5
Amazed? lol no just no, but it's good to know how fast u can get into the game.
Actually it is amazing because in the article it said it took 3 minutes for Killzone 3 and now compared to 15 seconds, it is a lot. Also in before PC Elitists, $400 hardware vs +$1000 hardware is not the same thing so don't even bother comparing because its futile.
dat next gen GG swag with no splash screens or load windows. Will be quick indeed! Hope more devs follow suit!
damn, i can already imagine waking up, turning on my PS4. starting up killzone shadow fall with coffee right next to me enjoying my day off of work. ahh yes. this next gen of gaming will be the golden years again.
same as what he said ^^ except i will swap coffee for meth
I hear a dude called Heisenburg has some really good stuff.
SPOILERS. He's not around anymore, but I know this other dude who helped him.
What I want to know is how quickly does your kettle boil?
well on very high, its still longer than my sex life.
It's great that Guerrilla managed to get rid of all the logos when launching the game and put them on the final credits. Like they said, hopefully is something other developers follow, as it is something very convenient.
Are the new bluray disc that much faster? I wonder if the game is install on the HDD.
Every game is installed, it's mandatory.
No. It is only cached to the HDD. Doesn't need to be installed to be played as explained by colonel179. http://n4g.com/news/1381094...
Technically they are cached, not installed.
thats on the xbone, maybe you just confuse it
Every game is cached, not installed. Only the relevant parts are needed to play. The rest is streamed off the disc.
You guys and your semantics. lol Just meant every game has to have data installed (cached) to the hard drive. There's no way it could get going that fast solely streaming off the disc. Now as for whether it's truly installed versus still running the disc, beats me. I would imagine fully installed to get it as fast as possible.
On the Xbox is mandatory to install the entire game to be able to play it. On the PS4 I am not sure if the entire game or just some part of it like the PS3.
Well the new drive has faster read speed over the PS3 Blu Ray drive and I think Sony said that some data will be cached on the HDD so the game can load data from the HDD and disc at the same time.
God dang it. Why does the piece of crap have to be so dang slow. Remember the days when we had cartridges and everything loaded up instantaneously? 15 seconds isn to dang long. -sarcasm- I thing its fantastic that load times will be extremely short on the PS3 in comparison to current gen systems. I guess we have to thank Mark Cerny for choosing GDDR5 for the console because the huge bandwidth does wonders for load times. Remember when Yoshida jumped into a match in a few seconds? That was amazing. Nexus 7 2013
Hope other games follow suit, if they absolutely have to just show the damn pregame bull up in a corer of the screen or something while still giving you control quickly as possible
YYEEEEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!! NEXT GEN IS GONNA BE AWESOME
i'm curious if it will be at least halved when i put a 256GB SSD in mah PS4 :)
Fair warning that is tiny and next gen games are going to be huge
i know, but i don't have problem to have only 3-5 games installed and then delete something if i need space.
Bare in mind that this takes into account the start screen and clicking 'continue single player story' in Shu's UI video, it took a mere 7 (!) seconds to join somebody's multiplayer match that was being livestreamed.
15 seconds? Too much! It needs to SNAP! I need to be able to SNAP from game to football to skype. Make it SNAP! /sarc
Great stuff! Should be even better when they suspend/resume functionality is added in a future update.
Blu ray drive are slow(always have) b/c of the decompress and compress loading process..its nothing new. Had sony used a red ray DVD drive we would end up with 3 disc for one game. Trade off is, blu ray drive = one disc or DVD drive = 3 dsic.
I wonder if this is something the XB1 can patch in through a fw update. If not this immediacy is a real selling point. I wonder why Sony hasn't put info like this on the front line.
that's good but not that impressive. most pc games take less than 10 seconds.
Not on my PC. lol
