Seeing as no loading throughout game, Or am I wrong.

How long do you think the loading would be before the game starts.

We'll probably be surprised and relatively won't be that bad. But none us worked on the PS3 or this game (except maybe BS) so its pretty hard to even assume or guess.

about 2 - 2.5 times longer than the loading time of SA.

 

I'm not sure really...just guessing.

I hope it's really long, so it feels like I'm really in for something.

Does it matter?

yeah i mean c'mon its GTA4!!!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

haha i can just imagine it:

 

 

gta4 just came out you go to the store to get it.

drive all the way home and pop it in your system.

the game fires up then it comes to the load screen,

you wait for about 5 minutes for it to load, after that

you get kinda angry, before you know it 20 minutes pass,

then 30, you get so angry you take the disc out and break it in

half...then you have to do it all over again...

 

 

 

that didnt come out like i imagined it. in my brain

it was much funnier. turn.gif

Its not going to be very long. I hope they have improved on SA i when i was loading up GTAIII the loading at the start is actually longer than SA i was shocked

 

So im expecting roughly about the same sort of loading time as SA if not a bit longer or shorter.

Then 5 minutes...

@Vicenzo No way! Much more than 1 minute...

 

 

And is it just the first time you start the game, or is it every time you start the game?

Every.

 

Wouldn't change if it was your first time or last.

1-2 minutes. More on PS3(I think. Depends on the compression of the 360 version). It's for the better I guess. Since there is no load when even going into buildings.

Not much difference, maybe the first time it can take 4 seconds longer.

Even if its 5 hours long who cares. It would be just once and NEVER EVER again smile.gif

I mean...

 

Will the game load once, the first time you ever start the game...

Or...

Will the game load everytime, when you start the game?

 

I'm confused...

I'm also confused about what you're saying and I'm not the only 1. confused.gif

 

The game will load everytime you start the game. Can you think about a game starting without loading.

Oh...

Well then 60 seconds will be alright tounge.gif

Thought it would just load once...

 

And so did the guy who said, "So what if it takes 5 hours? It'll only be once" ...

So I'm not the only only one misunderstadning...

 

I guess I just don't understand the word, Initial correctly...

It will be a crazy amount of time.

A game this large without loading times

is just going to have a HUGE initial loading time.

The game has to load somehow! It cant just magically appear.

 

I am going to assume it to be about 4-5 minutes, but that is a tradeoff

that I think is worthwhile.

I'm awfully suprised people are even thinking 10 minutes. I honestly can't see it been longer than 5 minutes. I mean, even 5 minutes is an insane amount of time for a game to load.

 

I think people took it in exaggeration when it was announced there will be one long load time at the beginning.

 

I reckon slightly more or less two literal minutes.

Apparently when you first put the game in it will take 10 to 15 minutes of loading time. Like Assasins creed when u first stick it in, it took quite a while to load in the beginning.

 

So yeah rockstar sed it will first take 10 - 15 minutes to load.

( don't ask for proof coz i cant remember where i red it)

They havn't said that.

You may be right about the first initial load time being longer, but not 10-15 minutes. Think about it.

I can cook something to eat for that long.

Hack NO! Thats unnacceptable.....seriously. And in the demos they said it "felt" like it took about five minutes. That being said I would say anywhere between 5 and 8 minutes....MAYBE. If it takes that long, may as well download it and never put the disc in again. confused.gif

I think it's the opposite. If it felt like five minutes it problably was like 2 mins.

But who cares?? We'll find out when we all get GTA IV.
