Will we still see "now loading" screens on next gen consoles?

Probably. Content has to be loaded at some point.

Got any ideas to make a game with? Hit me up with them if you do.

Yes.
Because game devs will always push the game to it's limits.

Plus you will be rewarded with even more annoying time wasting software checks. Your time is truly no longer valued in this age of gaming.

It most likely depends on the game that the system is running. I heard some developers are trying to make games that load everything while you're playing, instead of having load screens.

They should let people use SSDs, because I'm pretty amazed how load times have improved drastically to the point where I can't even read the tips on load screens for some games. It's really, really nice to have an SSD and digital download verses a dvd/hard drive, and I hope consoles embrace that at some point, because I can't go back to stuff like fallout new vegas on 360 anymore.

No matter what the hardware, loading time will always exist for games unless they're specifically designed to cover them up. I mean hell, even the SNES, N64, and DS had games with loading times.

The problem with doing this is that it can lead to freezing issues if you progress through an area too quickly.

Metroid Prime did this, and suffered from freezing issues if you ran through rooms too quickly.

Not that I don't believe you, but care to point some out?
