I've been wondering about this. Seemingly, digital games should load faster than disc. I bought NSMB U and Darksiders II digitally, and DS II still has relatively lengthy load times, though nothing that is really all that unbearable.

I think the average transfer speed of USB 2.0 is a little faster than the specified read speed of the drive. Guess we could at the very least compare "game boot-up" time, with people testing and posting the results of the version they have (physical or digital).

Could ask IGN to be useful and run an experiment.

IGN? Useful? Not a chance. Their article could be summarized as follows:

Wii U Disk Load Times - Terrible
Wii U Digital Load Times - Terrible
Buy moar PS360s

I asked IGN back when the Wii U launched. They never answered.

But according to this: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=45819568&postcount=753

Load times are faster with the digital download version of MH3U.
