Videos: PS3 Slim Loads Games & Movies Faster on Firmware 3.0

Sponsored Links
276w ago - In videos from last weekend, we learned that the PS3 fat boots itself faster than the PS3 Slim, but the Slim had the edge when it came to loading games.

Now with new PS3 Firmware 3.0, the PS3 Slim loads games even faster... up to 25% faster according to [Register or Login to view links] on a Devil May Cry 4 installation.

YouTube user PS3slimComparison did a PS3 Slim Firmware 2.80 vs 3.00 Uncharted 1 level load comparison, with the same settings on both consoles and same 7200RPM hard drive installed on each.

To quote: "In this demonstration, conducted by the same source as the original testing, we see the PS3 Slim (Firmware 2.8) load Uncharted: Drake's Fortune against the PS3 Slim (Firmware 3.0).

The difference is considerable (you know, for adjustments to software alone), and we don't see why most other games wouldn't encounter similar loading improvements."

Finally, in the second video (below) it appears Blu-ray movies also load faster on PS3 Slim Firmware 3.0 versus 2.8 from startup. Cheers!

Not bad for the speed of PS3 Slim Loads but how about the big ps3?

I kinda find it dumb actually, hopefully this doesnt make sony go and developing the firmwares specifically for the slim now.

Don't want to be left in the dust with a console that isnt "fast" anymore because of firmware that doesn't give attention to the old phat consoles .

Cool, 25% is a huge speed boost. Maybe the 3.0 update had problems here and there but it gave the Slim good results. Those with the PS3 slim will be happy. Im cool with old 80GB Motorstorm PS3 lol
