Video: ModNation Racers CRAZY LONG load times.

Forums - Sony Discussion - Video: ModNation Racers CRAZY LONG load times.

For anyone interested, the game just got a 9/10 from GamesRadar.

GamesRadar:

ModNation Racers (9/10): "Even if MNR was ‘just’ a racing game, the annoyances would be minor. But ModNation Racers is far more than a kart game – it’s the new friendly face of DIY gaming. The creation tools are accessible and the editing mechanics comfortably familiar – more so than any other ‘make your own’ style game on PS3. It even caters to classic, often overlooked, split-screen racing alongside conventional 12-player online play. It’s the only kart racer you’ll ever need, and although not the best racing experience out there, it’s certainly the most fun. And if you don’t enjoy what’s on offer, you’ve only yourself to blame…"

its just loading times.. I mean MGS4.. and it's 1 hour install screans were..

MGS4 installs between chapters were 3 1/2 minutes at most for me.

Where do you get ~1 hour from?

 

Even the initial install was ~8 minutes.

And I got already annoyed by Sin & Punishment 2's 10-15 seconds initial loading time right after the Wiimote safety screen. A game loading after it has already been loaded, that's just stupid. But you PS3 owners have it much worse, it seems.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Not when I play Uncharted or Demon's Souls.

You're just jealous that a Sony console gets a good old school NES Zelda style game.

No, I am not just jealous. I also hate Sony with a passion, so I take every chance to troll.

3D Dot Game Heroes is of course an interesting game. Something like it is rarely made today, but 15-20 years ago there were plenty of these games. Those were the days.

The load times on the beta were quite long, but I thought that they said they were going to improve that for the official release?

It is possible that all they did was provide an optional install, while the video is someone playing directly from the disc.

Yes, they indeed were the days. I miss them.

Really... he had to wait 3 minutes to play the game and he wants to bitch about it? Sounds to me like he was not too happy to play the game to begin with, he was just impatient?... I could be wrong.

This is the same thing that happens when you go to play a game online, you boot any online game from XMB/Dash and wait for it to load, then you go online and enter the online lobby, then you wait for the game to populate, and once there are enough people then the game starts. Load up any online game and measure the time for yourself, i bet that 90% of them will take you 3 mins to get to game play.

I have been playing games since the 80's, this is really not an issue, i have been through worse load times on most consoles and PC's that i have owned.



these load times are horrible and are the main reason i hardly played the beta... i hope to god theres an optional install and if there isnt there needs to be!

i didnt go to the site and read anything about the video, but maybe the game was actually installing on that load up?

I played the beta and i gotta be honest the load time to get to game play was about 50sec, roughtly  1min, ok, but to add the XMB and possible game install into the colck and time measurement is just bullshit, this video was a setup.

That was the same for me.
