    I have around 100 psp games but have only just bought my first one (The warriors - due to the file size being nearly 2gb!)

    But jesus christ, loading makes such a racquet and is really annoying with the disk spinning about 4000000rpm :evil:

    Guess I'll get used to it but surely Sony could have made it quieter?

    I agree and the worst is loading compared to an ISO from a stick is sooo slow :sigh:

    Here's another question....

    Will the game load faster if you have your CPU at 333?

    Or do you think UMD's will run the same?

    I only ever bought 1 game (GTA: LCS unpatched) and I agree... the loading times are horable. Every expereince I have had with a UMD... well the things just arnt that good. I mean, look at there design! What did Sony expect to happen?

    And Ill agree with eloder, money towards a bigger ms would have been better :P.

    a bigger ms would help yes,but u need a fast MS too not just the normal ones.

    PSP --> 2.71 -> 1.50 --> 3.40 OE-A --> 3.52 M33-4 --> 3.71 M33-2 --> 3.71 M33-4.

    I like how everytime Sony comes out with some new revolutionary media storage device (MINIDISCS, UMDS), it's always just a CD in a plastic case that loads slow and is loud as hell. I used to have a Sony minidisc player and I hated using it in public because it was so loud everytime it changed songs. Same with my PSP :(.

    Memsticks ahoy!

    Agreed. Most people just dont have that kind of conciousness. Even having enough money to buy a UMD from time to time. :/


    UMD noise is no helicopter, you can live with it.
    Load times are only a problem for some games, not all.
    On the good side: save space and money on mem sticks, support the developers, play full game content (not stripped ISOS), change games on the fly, no USB huge transfer times.

    People always complain about load times. I don't find them a bother. If you hate it so much go work for sony and develop a media device that is silent and fast.
