Playing GTA Vice City on 360 right now and the loading times are long understandably, But do you think it would load faster if I installed it to the HDD?

It probably won't make much difference on consoles, due to lower system specs as compared to most PC's, but on PC, the load times are A LOT faster on both the Disc and Steam/D2D versions. Long load times have always been a problem. Even with IV, the load times are a lot longer on the PS3 and 360 versions, however on the PC version, the game loads a lot faster.

 

Heck, even PC's with Intel Video cards can load SA a lot faster than both the PS2 and X-Box can. You can even max. out SA with an Intel Video card, I have confirmed that-Proof is here in this topic, in my post there...

Yeah I understand, I actually have all PC GTA games and they load in seconds.

Its just the Xbox version has better graphics in some ways, And I just wanted to know if it would load faster if I installed it to the HDD.

the Disc game isn't intended to be copied to the HD. However, you can buy the download game.

I don't know if you might be limited by the 360's emulation engine for the original Xbox. The disc version ran fine for the 360 for me though.
