Comparison of the boot times of Rainbox 6 Vegas. According to author, "While the Xbox 360 appears to load first, and technically it does, the actual loading times appear to be faster on the PS3 considering the PhysX screen and the Warning Screen.".
This has to be the best comparision ever. At least the funniest
360 owner and fan here and yes the 360 wins but this is no big deal
I'm so amazed that this type of news (which isn't even news) has already is at 100.
I`m from the uk and when my buddy in new york starts his R6 game and I start mine, he`s always starts 6 1/2 hours before mine!!! No fare.
Seriously though, some games take years to make, take millions of pounds to produce, with teams of up to a hundred or more, they are manufactured in there millions in high tech sterial factories, they are flown in there thousands around the globe, they are transport by land, sea and air to a shop that is close to you. At home your consoles sweat blood to bring you 5.1, HD, rich stories, atmosphere.
So I say, on bended knee, give the GAMES a break!
got to be fake. someone inserted that black gap. it never happens on my console. it is equal the time.
WTF is this?. Either way what does it matter. PS3 beat xbox, xbox beat PS3.
This is a stupid comparison.
please no one approve of this. They lead to nowhere in term of convo.
A lot of people tend to forget that if you load up a game on 360 once, it caches the content so the second time you load it loads a lot faster. But this is just flame bait.
What's so hard to understand about the XBox 360 being able to load the game faster than the PS3. The DVD player on the xbox 360 reads faster than the PS3 blu-ray drive. Which is why many developers are doing pre-install on the PS3 hard drive to reduce loading time.
That's not flame bait is facts... does it matter? no... I don't think 5-10 seconds is a big deal to flame the PS3 version over this.
but no flame intended but XBox 360 drive read speed > than PS3 blu-ray drive read speed. Everyone knows that.
I was trying to defend the PS3 when it comes to this... but I guess I cant... So why is this game taking longer to load on the PS3 than on the xbox 360 when it should be the other way around?
I guess the PS3 really sucks... at doing stuff that it suppost to be doing faster.... that's lame!
Blu ray is slighty faster but not by much since it has a constant read speed, while DVD-9 vary s.
2x Blu-ray Drive (72Mbps(9MB/s))
12x DVD-Rom Drive SL (9.25MB/S-15.85MB/s)
DVD's run at Half-Speed on the second data layer. What's worse is that 12x is the theoretical speed, and the outer 600MBs of 360 discs are blocked off for security purposes. That means overall that 2x BD-ROMs are read (on average) faster than 12X DVD-ROMs, though marginally. It's actually the standard HDD that helps PS3 devs with load times.
when you turn it off it happens instantly. The PS3 takes longer to turn off." what's that you say? who gives a sh*t? EXACTLY. why do people keep comparing retarded sh*t?
alright the war of loading times! I'm in! So what's the deal with loading these days huh? What happened to the great days of cartridge based games? Plus you didn't even need a separate memory reader you just saved on the cart itself.... ugh
Yea this test in itself is rather redundant is it? Regardless of what platform you want you still get to put up with good fashion loading! Slow or fast it's still there
of the systems, you will buy it for the 1 you own. nobody is going to buy the other system because a game(especially multi-plat) loads 4 seconds faster. if anyone cares that much about load times, they have bigger issues.
"OMG! TEH 360 loads faster than da PS3! ZOMG! But the PS3 has more messages at the begining! Power of teh cell!"
Seriouly, who even put this up for approval? I would like to think people are on this site, however fanboyish they may be, would know better than to take the bait, but given the number of approvals, it seems I'm wrong. Please keep reporting. Getting this to the front page would be disgraceful.
PWNAGE again... http://www.n4g.com/NewsPend...
Funny how it's not even the same boot process. This comparison fails on all levels.
BUT TEH CELL
BUT TEH 33% FAILURE RATE
to much time on someones hands!!....this is not news...this is garbage!
but lemme guess...the 360 is faster?
EDIT: hmm why does this not surprise me
i agree with ppl above...this is pure flamebait
Everyone knows that the Blu ray drive in the PS3 is slow only being a 2x drive.
I don't even care about this.
they should have compared level loading time not startup, what a waste of time
the most pathetic comparison yet! Give it a brake, please. :(
ZOMG best comparison ever. seriously.
Can't we just forget about the platforms, and concentrate on gaming, after all thats what its really ment to be about. Once upon a time we'd be discussing how to complete difficult parts of games, now its more important to discuss the speed the damn things load, Yawn!!!!.
N4G seems to be all about flamebait these days. =/
Exactly, next we will be comparing the console color. In other news the xbox is whiter than the PS3, where as the PS3 is blacker than the Xbox
I wanna see GTA4 load time comparison on the PS3 and the 360.
Agree: If you think it will be faster on the PS3.
Disagree: If you have nothing better to do.
Edit: @ toughNAME
You are pathetic. You are seeing and reading things that aren't there. Go get some immediate help idiot.
but but but!
a game in the future i predict will have better load times...really i swear!!!
Wow.........a full 3 seconds. Who cares. For all we know it could be edited to make the pS3 version look slow.
I was thinking the same thing! then I said to myself it serves two purposes flame the console you don't like when possible and win that money from the site contest.
It's hard to say if Sony fans post to bash or to win money; ofcourse its both but which is more important to them?. lol
Has anybody played Overlord its really good, and its fun to play, and it loads quicker than the spectrum 48K
Guess i'll be sellin my PS3.
I'm sick of wasting my life on load times.
Hell, I've probably wasted a good 2 to 3 minutes alone on R6V.
Time I'll never get back.
Damn you Sony, Damn you to hell!
Why oh why didn't I buy a 360?
I could have spent that 2 to 3 minutes bettering the world.
This is the all time $h!ttest post ever. A new low in fanboy $h!te.
And the sad f()cker who actually set this up and compared the two?
GET A LIFE.
This is trash like always the anti- Sony force always got the free time to do all this.
compare Oblivion x360 load times to PS3 load times.
x360 has pathetic load times.
Seriously some people have NOTHING better to do than be comparing games?
What is next? comparing the thickness of the users manual of the PS3 vs the 360? hey why not compare which manual you can read faster!
First it was grahics comparison but now loading comparison. Whats next a sound comparsion between PS3 and 360. This is ridiclous
And from sony's camp we'll get another Ring of Death article.
the faster load the fast your system blow out (red lights of death) lol
that's a retarted comparison... like saying the guy running a 100M dash ran faster than the guy running a 150M dash...
i just wanna play.
A few seconds? People are getting worked up over a few seconds? Folks, as I've said before, those load times have NOTHING on a Commodore 64 or an Apple IIE. (Now THOSE were load times!)
Seriously, how did this story get approved?
Some IDIOT has wayy too much time on his hands. ITS CALLED GETTING A JOB!.
STFU your so full of sh*t. I've played both versions, the load times are the same. Geezus Krist...a new level of douchebaggery...
did anyone notice PS3 intro screen looks better than 360..:)? am I the only one?
Yes you are the ONLY one!!!
mmm... Let's see.. Any new names for the PS3?
I have a few:
Loading... Station 3!
Please Wait... Station 3!
Zzzzz Station 3!
TMNT Station 3!
Let me take my @$$ to the kitchen and grab a soda while this damn game load station 3!
Anyone can think of another one?
lol a lot of those are really funny!
Sigh, your not funny or clever. Stfu and go back to your 360 section.
.... the point is ???
Next comparison is how fast it takes to clean you 360 with Windex VS the PS3 ...
If you are THAT BUSY that the few seconds in the difference is an issue, MAYBE ... JUST MAYBE ... you should stop playing video games and get back to what it is you're doing that is so vital in life.
And Bladstar ... STFU ... you make us 360 owners look like idiots !!!
base on what Sony fanboys are saying XBox 360 owners are stupid... because you are not adopting the PS3. So, it's only fare that they get their share of anoyance after hundred of ring of death articles. Besides.... are don't tell me you measure your IQ by the fact that you own a 360? "you make us 360 owners look like idiots !!! " ohh wow! he got a 360! you have no Idea how stupid you sounded by saying that. and as you can see having a 360 or not does not mean you are not an idiot.
did u play resistance it takes less than 5-10 secondes to load up..
it depends on dev that how long he/she works on the game and make it work faster and smoother..
but still this game rulz
on Ps3 u at least hear the sound of the game and not the console..
PS3 got better graphic and last long, Playstation got better great looking controllers.
Xbox 360 are over heating and Xbox white fanboys are moving over to Playstation 3.
Xbox fanboys say Xbox 360 sucks and have poor graphics.
This is from the NES_fanboy
This unbelieveable. I thought N4G stood for News 4 Gamers, how can you consider this news? Are we next going to see XBOX360 vs PS3: Number of LED's or maybe XBOX360 vs PS3: Fan speed comparison. Surely these must be just as news worthy.
can't you see the problem?, if you add the 3 seconds it takes to load the game x the cost of the ps3, minus the online play, divded by multiplatform games, + 30 seconds of tuna in the microwave. You would have wasted 30 years of your life waiting, unless you don't have tuna then it would be 3 seconds.
at least we need not to wait for repair.
BFD, who approved this? Off with his head.
First I have to say that I dislike the Xbox 360 fanatics that plagued this site. i consider myself a gamer because i enjoy the most of all the consoles. i have both the PS3 and 360 so say wathever you want fanatics. This is only the intro to my real comment.
MY GOD WHICH VERSION OF R6V LOAD FASTER?? OBIOUSLY THE 360 VERSION!!! ALL THE XBOX 360 OWNERS WHO HAD BOUGTH THE GAME LOADED IT SIX MONTH BEFORE THE PS3 VERSION!!! WORST IS THE 360 VERSION LOOKS WAYY BETTER!! So just stop posting THIS CRAP!!!!
FANATICS IF U DONT LIKE IT...URS ELF
that must be the worst comparsison video ever
people here are unreasonable. why does every xbox fan here ALWAYS wants to find ways to show that their system is better than our ps3?? you're like a bunch of little kids.grow up people.
people here are unreasonable. why does every xbox fan here ALWAYS wants to find unreasonable ways to show that their system is better than our ps3(even if it is sometimes,if not always,ridiculous already)?? you're like a bunch of little kids.grow up people.
Nice, count on gametrailers to make some comparison about things that don't matter. Look, the resolution on the letter O is sharper on the PS3 than the 360, damn......
Once I get through the menu and the gaming experience is the same I can care less. Enjoy.....
reading some fanboic comments i just have to say this i watched it and the ps3 deosnt seem to take that long but sometimes it says cache game information and then it does take a little long and so what big deal right -_-
