Sir_NutS Posted November 30, 2006 Report Share Posted November 30, 2006 And I still laugh at the laughably long loading times the PS3 will have. Trying to pump 4+ times the data, through something running as fast as a 4x DVD drive(2x BD-ROM=4x DVD-ROM stream speeds), when the PS2 had a 2x DVD drive in it. That means you'll be looking at no less than double the loading times. I do too. I mean, when are we going to get rid of the fucking annoying load times if shitheads like this guys never do something about it? I've read of X360 games actually loading faster and working smoother than the ps3 counterpart, what the hell? I thought this generation load times could get lessened because the companies would include faster and more efficient reading devices. Alas, we are getting worse loads than in our old ps2's. This makes me sad. Unfortunately for your argument, Blu-ray actually has a much higher read speed than DVD, so a 4x BD drive is far greater than a 2x DVD player. Look it up on Wikipedia if you want (I'm too lazy), or just trust me. Still, even if it is faster the load times are going to be pretty high. Ps3 = Blu-Ray Drive 2x xbox360 = 12x dvd drive Blu-Ray Transfer speed = 36 Mbps DVD Transfer speed = 10 Mps Total: ps3's BR = 72 Mbps xbox 360 DVD = 120 Mbps Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
