Digital Version Load Times

#1ECMPosted 3/18/2013 4:31:43 PM
Using this stopwatch:

http://stopwatch.onlineclock.net/

Initial load from WiiU Dashboard:

~1:12

Load from UI to first (skippable) cinema:

~1:08

Drive: Western Digital Passport 3.0 500GB.

Hopefully someone with a disc copy can see how these stack up--I'll try to come back later with loads in and out of buildings, etc.

~1:10 to load from the dashboard

~1:07 to the first cutscene

No external HD for me. Not sure if that is a huge factor compared to your times, but we'll wait and see how retail stacks up.

Some more:

City-->Station: 40 seconds.

Station-->Ctiy: 1:13

Did three trials of these just to make sure.

City to Station: ~0:35
Station to Ctiy: ~1:05

Did 4 trials here, but got within the same ballpark for each of these.

Retail Version here. I'll try and follow up on these tests. I haven't done the latter 2 yet, but I can provide the first 2:

Load from Dashboard: ~1:20
Load to first cutscene: ~1:08

Seems pretty similar to me. I'll try to follow up with the next 2.

A minute of loading?! O_O

IMO, well worth it. It's better than waiting two more days for the game to ship locally. :(

Looks like the loading times are about on par.

@Lynx: Where did you get it?

Best Buy in Winnipeg, MB, CA

BTW, here are those other tests:

City->Station: ~0:43
Station->City: ~1:12

I only tested these once, but I imagine it would stay pretty consistent.

I'd rather wait 2 days and have a game with minimal loading times that I can play for a long time over getting it now and waiting a minute+ for everything. Though the former won't be true. -_-

How often do you have to load? Every time there's a cutscene? Every time you enter/exit buildings?
