Lol I'd rather keep my $30 250GB HDD than spending $150 (for example) on a decent 32GB SSD HDD...

Yeah... Besides, the standard load times on my 80Gig are about 15 o 30(MAX!) sec when installed on the HDD, so pretty much I've never gotten frustrated at all.

just log off PSN
but its not as slow as it used to be when the game first came out
so idk

Maybe I'm different but I don't find loadings long. I always read cars I'll be racing with and loading's done short moment later.

Such a difference is to be expected.. but say if you were to go online, wouldn't you just be sitting waiting whilst everyone elses game was still loading? That'd get annoying.

Redempteur2866d ago

it already happens in lot of games.

for example i load quite fast in wipeout HD and i have to wait for others to finish loading.

And it's not that annoying IMO

What's next? Watercooling the entire console?

I have a standard Slim 320GB and my track load times seem to sit in the middle between their SSD and HDD times.

Maybe they should have been more thorough with their test approach and included a fast 7200rpm 320GB drive (Seagate Momentus 7200.4 / WD Scorpio Black) and one of the latest with flash/Hybrid HDD's.

You don't watercool??? mine never leaves the bath lol

Yeah my 500GB hdd is 7200rpm, everything loads fast :P
