Dead Rising

loading up a saved game from CD: 15 seconds
loading up to get to the roof *from start of game*: 15 seconds

HOLY SHIT

Loading up a saved game took 2.5 SECONDS, and same for coming off the Roof.

TOTAL 100 PERCENT GREEN ON DEAD RISING. WOAH



Yes, you can install one disc at a time.


You can actually install 2 games at a time, depending on how big they are.

I went back through the bingegamer article posted last year and updated the list here now that we have a set legend in place. Also, i submitted this as a news post over at N4G.com, it's currently pending approval. If anyone is a member there, feel free to 'Approve' it, perhaps we can hit the frontpage today if we get enough attention;

EDIT: it was approved and made the frontpage. Feel free to comment, the more attention the better.

I'm getting a conflicting report that says Dead Rising took longer after installed. What size HDD do you have and was your copy the Platinum Hits version or Original? I ask the other person the same thing.

Also the DVD drives involved might make a difference, or the make of hard drive...who knows. It could be different from one system to the next.

oh, and how fragmented the hard drive is could matter too!

I have the standard 20gb HDD, so I can only have one game installed at a time. But I'm bored, so I deleted COD:WaW and installed Burnout Revenge.

DVD - 8 sec until intro screen
DVD - 21 sec - Sunshine Keys - Burning Lap forwards
DVD - 20 sec - Motor City - Crash - Cars Attacks

HDD - 5 sec until intro screen
HDD - 10 sec - Sunshine Keys - Burning Lap forwards
HDD - 11 sec - Motor City - Crash - Cars Attacks

So as you can see, it makes quite a big difference! I need to get a bigger hard drive so I can keep all my games installed. I never minded the load times in this game though, because unlike most games, it plays music during the loading screens.

You rule. Thanks.

Correct. It's fixed now, thanks :)

EDIT: the user on N4G said he has a 120GB HDD and the PH version as well so i asked him to clear his cache. If 1 or 2 other people with Dead Rising could test the performance (HDD vs DVD) that would be great.

Of note:

In both Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Batman I've noted that the game freezes at irregular intervals requiring a hard reboot to fix. Installing these games to the hard drive fixed this problem in both cases. I did not try Star Wars.

My cache did not need any cleaning when i ran Dead Rising. it sometimes does take 10 seconds, but usually it takes 2 seconds instead of 15 to load.

I'm still waiting for a reply from the other guy, hopefully he gets back to me soon.

Trying to see if it makes any difference on the Xbox Live Arcade Complication Disc.

Regular Times for games to boot

Boom Boom Rocket: 11 seconds
Feeding Frenzy: 5.5 seconds
Luxor 2: 5.5 seconds? *was hard to tell*
Pac Man CE: 12.5 seconds
Uno: 4 seconds

on Hard Drive

Boom Boom Rocket: 12 seconds
Luxor 2: 3 seconds
Feeding Frenzy: 6 seconds
Pac Man CE: 9.5 seconds
Uno: 4 seconds


Verdict: WHITE - No difference.

Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath - 3.6GB - WHITE - It took roughly 15 seconds to load a 2 player skirmish game from either HDD or DVD.

Frontlines: Fuel of War - GREEN - Loading the first level from the DVD took 27 seconds. Loading the first level from the HDD took 22 seconds. It barely makes the mark for the color designation.

Thanks, i marked it YELLOW though since the improvement was 5 seconds (Yellow = load times improved by 3-5 seconds.)

Cabela's Trophy Bucks .........................................[3.4 GB]

The load times seem a slight bit better, but not enough to say it's green status.

Smackdown vs RAW 2008

Loads from CD

Load Game from the main menu:
Create an Entrance: 14 seconds
Loading a 1 vs 1 Match: 23 seconds, then 19 seconds

Loads from Hard Drive:
Create an Entrance: 12 seconds
Loading a 1 vs 1 Match: 11 seconds, then 16 seconds

Eh, This one's hard to judge, id only give it a Green since it cuts 1 vs 1 Matches down in Half. other then that, not much of a improvement.

BTW have you been keeping tabs on the posts were getting at GameFAQs?

Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm...[3.4GB] - GREEN

Dashboard to Press Start screen: DVD - 38 seconds, HDD - 26 seconds
New Game screen to intro video: DVD - 28 seconds, HDD - 14 seconds

I also noticed loading between missions (with the game installed) was quicker, i don't have any numbers to back this up but it is noticeable.

NOTE: this game is surprisingly fun.

It should be interesting once there are 4 or 5 lists like these and cross referance them to see if they all had the same results.

That is actually the only list i've seen that has performance results posted...aside from ours here that is. I've done a few searches trying to find others and nothing has come up. Unfortunately, NeoGAF has gotten all the credit for having the best list and that just isn't the case...
