Trophies/achievements 7 times faster on 360

GZ: "Ever wondered how fast each console's operating systems run? Wonder no more. Legendary NeoGAF forum poster TTP has been busy compiling information on the speed that both the PS3 and Xbox 360 perform certain tasks. The results were generally similar for each of the operating systems, but there were some surprising differences."

"Not too much to shout about, but interesting nonetheless."

Thats the best quote out of the whole "article"

Im sure no one cares about the .5 1.5 second advantages 360 has in some fields and PS3 has in others. Im just glad the features are there.

heroicjanitor2968d ago

But there will always be people who will be delighted to hear that the system they own has a slight advantage, even if it is because of a difference in the amount of content loaded.

La Chance2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

Thats why I picked the 360.

edit @stewgart : yeah deep down in my mind Im dead serious, yout got me! I dont even play online, even for COD4 I prefer playing with friends right next to me with extra pads. Now shut up because youre the only who was stupid enough to come out.

table2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

lol at la chance trying desperately to justify his purchase.

edit: keep up the good work then. your comments usually give us n4g members a good laugh. The funny part is, deep down you are pathetic enough to be dead serious.

chrisnick2968d ago

you chose 360 bcuz it has slightly better software(made by a software company) running on its console, even though the hardware is clearly not up to par? Does that even make sense? That's like buying vista but having to turn off your pc every 5 mins because it might fall apart on you.

La Chance2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

You got to be an id!ot if you thought I was serious.

You thought I was serious.

I would have said that about the PS3, I bet your head wouldnt have popped up in this thread. I did it on purpose (didnt add the "sarcasm" at the end) just to see the stupid reactions some would have.

Look at the 360 catologue of past and future games : THAT justifies the purchase of a 360.

likedamaster2968d ago

In-game, comparing achievements/trophies of course.

krakdol2968d ago

@La Chance : the catalogues more likely justify a PS3 purchase. No AAA exclusive on 360 since last november (Killzone 2 : 92, MLB09 : 90)...

chrisnick2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

they've been runnin their mouths all year...forza this, splinter cell that, but they don't seem to realize, ppl have been saying that they have no games AND ITS TRUE!!! they just have no games till.....october, justify that, you've had to wait about 10 months to get AAA games yet you still defend that? that's just assinine.

Syronicus2968d ago

We are now seeing articles about trophies and achievements loading up differently? Seriously?

Wow...

Greywulf2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

Look at your post history...

I mean...

Look at it...

This article is dumbsss

Gamertags2968d ago

On the PS3, why does it take so long to compare. I would try to compare with friends of mine and eventually give up.

On the 360, incredibly fast.

Not a big deal but a nice bit of polish for the 360!

Jaces2968d ago

It is a bit of a pain to compare trophies that much is true, but I only do it on rare occasions so it's not a biggie for me.

Tito Jackson2968d ago

wut about teh blu-rayz? lol.

Beast_Master2968d ago

I compare trophies alot and it is annoying. especially when you comparing to Jaces..lol dude has 14 plats including Fallout 3 lol, your a sick gamer dude.

randomwiz2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

@1
Some people care(makes them feel better).

I rarely compare trophies, I compare achievements more(just because most of my friends have a 360 only), but its so annoying when I do it on the ps3. But then again, if I'm comparing trophies/achievements, then I probably have nothing better to do, so I have the time.

Jaces2968d ago

Nothing better in the world when that *ding* sound goes off.

haha, it's addicting.

Aeroglyphics2968d ago

That "ding" has become my crystal meth

uie4rhig2968d ago

but you gotta look at it this way, PS3 loads all icons of the trophies online, 360 uses the same icons for all of them so the only thing it has to load is that numbers! ;)

Boody-Bandit2968d ago

Damn that is SIC!
Jaces that is definitely hardcore. I don't have any platinum.

housegroove762968d ago

Im in complete agreement in the holy sh!t of jaces plats. I thought I read it wrong at first. I have none as well.

Sarcasm2968d ago

I'm pretty sure that there will be an article about "The PS3's case scratches easier than the 360, thus the 360 is far far superior"

Prototype2968d ago

Who cares how fast it loads, I'm more concerned about HOW they play not what their score is.

I can already predict next weeks flood of stories: "PS3 is closing its studios while Microsoft acquires NaughtyDog" give me a break.

Beast_Master2968d ago

I thought I was badass with my 2 plats and over 500 trophies. But Jaces put me to shame. Dude just got Prototype, how he beat the game killing less than 10 civians I will never know. lol Not to mention how in the heck he beat KZ2 and [email protected] on hard?

Arnon2968d ago

"No AAA exclusive on 360 since last november (Killzone 2 : 92, MLB09 : 90)..."

AAA does not relate to a score. But if you want, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost & Damned (Which has a longer story than Killzone 2 and more gameplay than both of the games you mentioned combined) scored a 90 average. And it's only "DLC".

Anon19742967d ago (Edited 2967d ago )

I mean, come on. Who on earth would even check this kind of thing? I suppose there's someone out there who knows exactly how many milliseconds it takes from button press to effect on screen, and much like this article the end results matters zilch to me.

Ugh! Slow news day, eh?

Edit Above: Ok, how on earth are you guys spinning this into a exclusive pissing contest?

theEnemy2967d ago

He believes on what he think is right.

Blinded by pride and idiocracy.

Oh, and he's out of bubbles.

Boody-Bandit2967d ago

*raises hand* oh, oh, oh, I know!

Desperate sites looking for hits.

What did I win?

Microsoft Xbox 3602967d ago (Edited 2967d ago )

I bet La Chance seriously meant what he said on post 1.5.

LOL

DR0Z02967d ago

They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point, aren't they? This is ridiculous.

Downtown boogey2967d ago

It clearly states that PS3 has to also download all the trophy pictures as well. No wonder it takes so long!

yoghurt2968d ago

brilliant that someone is making an article out of that ONE difference, clutching at straws much.

sunil2968d ago

The difference was extreme in the previous firmware versions, but I did see a remarkable improvement in speed with the firmware 2.80 installed.

Maybe these times are before this firmware update.

Kleptic2968d ago

yeah if this test was taken between FW 2.40 and 2.60...I would believe it...but 2.70, and then especially 2.80...are MUCH faster for this exact task (2.80 made the in game xmb much faster overall, not just trophy syncing and card displays)...

not saying its as fast or faster than the 360...I'm just saying it doesn't take anywhere near 37 seconds...I never realized it ever did take that long, but now it seems like just a few seconds...
