This may sound weird, but I only notice a slow load if I've had the game shut off all day. Say I put the kids to bed and then pop in the game....it does take a while. But, if I play a game, then shut down my system because I want to watch some TV...then 5 minutes later decide I want to play again...it takes no time at all.

EDIT: BTW, as sweet as this game is, it could take 15 minutes to load and it wouldn't bother me.

You should definitely play MLB 2K. Much faster load times. Just think...a whole 20 seconds faster

Thing is, the game required a 5GB install and it still takes a long time to load. Just imagine how long it would have taken without an install. The devs really need to do a better job.

You kids these days have it easy. When I was your age we had to load our games by hand...uphill...both ways.

I've seen some silly complaints about what the devs do or don't do.

But this one takes the cake.

Yea, this is a stupid thread all the way around. I mean, if the load time is too slow for ya, go play a different game. I dont know what good it does to get on here and trash the SCEA team.

They made us the best baseball game ever, in the history of baseball video games, and all some folks can do is bitch about the load times??? Get real!!

I seem to be in the minority of wanting to play the game quicker so I guess I will just have to deal with the long loading.

Really?!?! Since loading time is such a critical aspect of your gaming experience I would advise you to purchase MLB 2k9 for the lightning quick loading features it offers. I'm sure it will not disappoint you in any way in that regard. Forgive me for assuming the actual gameplay was more important to you, I shall not make that mistake ever again.

On a side note, if in fact you did enjoy the game play of The Show 09 and considered it to be of high quality, did it ever occur to you that perhaps this high quality gameplay is tied into the long load time? Ahhhhhhhh

Geez you guys. It's a legitimate complaint. It effects the presentation of the game. I know the devs can do better is all I'm trying to get across and the game would be more enjoyable if it loaded quicker. The game is awesome but it's not perfect and this is one area that stands out to me.

LOL, seriously? It affects you the first 2 minutes after you boot the game up. After that, what the hell really takes that long to load? If you're starting up a game, they always give you on-screen information to read while the game loads, especially in franchise mode. You'll get league leaders in various different stats, you'll get pitching match-ups for the start of a series, you'll get starting lineups for the game you're about to enter, etc, etc, etc.

Sorry hbguy, there's a lot of things worth complaining about with this game. I just don't see how loading time is one of them.
