Incredible PSP Load Times

Yup, pretty insane. The average load time on the PSP isnt that bad though. The game I've got where its most frequent is probably Prince of Persia, and its perhaps max 1m 30s from bootup until youre in the game. Takes no time when you put it on sleep tho, which I do pretty much all the time anyway :G

the biggest problem is it spent 4 of those minutes loading single shots of NOTHING. Didn't anyone go... you know maybe people bought this for a wrestling game and not a shot of a girl walking that took 33 seconds to load?

whoever is responsible for this should be locked away and only allowed to make shareware for the compUSA shelves.

BF2's load times are what stopped me and my flatmate playing to be honest - they were horrible. I did hear they improved them in patches so maybe now the situation is better, but it was pretty horrendous to begin with :( The whole optimising shaders fiasco each time you wanted to change video settings made it a pain to get "just right" for your system when you first got the game too - it took about half an hour to do what in most games takes a couple of minutes.

Oh yea, and once the loading is over you get that verifying client data shit which is plus 2 minutes, then you click the button for join game and you lag the shit out, and by the time everything clears up its been a minute since you clicked the button... and you're lucky if the game doesn't lag for two minutes after you join

fuck that

I stopped playing just before the Wake Island patch came out, but before that it took absolutely ages to get into the game, and computer power didn't seem to have much difference.

It actually loaded the map and whatever really quickly, it was the "verifying data" which then took multiple minutes. It was also generally stressful just using that God forsaken server browser, which ultimately led to me just not wanting to bother.
