Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Loading times seem to be more bearable on Wii U

I thought it would be cool to talk about some games for a change.

 

So, I have preordered Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and played some of the game with a friend on his PS3. One thing that really upsets me are the long loading times the game has before every single race. So I did some investigating and found that the Wii U Version of the game has significantly lower loading times.

From one blackscreen to the other, the Wii U version needs about 11 seconds to load (0:11-0:22) while the 360 version needs about 24 seconds (3:20-3:44). 

 

Now the comparison is between 2 different modes (race vs. boost rush) but I don't think that the result is too heavily skewed due to this. But maybe I'm wrong. I for one am pleased with this, although 11 seconds is still a little much for my taste. What do you think?



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

much more RAM so that should be obvious.

It's BluRay drive is faster than PS3's BluRay drive.

A good port!? How dare you say something like that. We all know third parties make lazy games for the Wii U

More RAM and a faster disc drive should also help with texture pop in and yet other multiplat games have managed to fuck this up. I just have a hard time right now to take things for granted that SHOULD obviously be better.

I still find it incredible nintendo fans are actually gloating over a console that is so far showing to be slightly more powerful than the 360....... when the 360 is 7 years going onto 8 years old..
