The PS3 was pitted against standalone BD players and their load speeds were timed and compared. To no surprise at all, the PS3 emerged on top. Figures below:

Title in test : Men in Black
* Sony PS3: 43 seconds
* Sony BDP-S350: 66 seconds
* Sony BDP-S5000ES: 67 seconds
* Sony BD Recorder BDZ-T50: 80 seconds
* Sony BD Recorder BDZ-X100: 81 seconds

Yeah Ps3 read times pwns so bad we're really lucky most of our games don't require mandatory installs for the multiports to compete with the 360 counterparts

Is that the time from putting the disc in to it actually starting the movie? I can't say it feels like 43 seconds on the PS3 from putting the disc in until something starts happening (like a Blu-Ray trailer), maybe more like 15-20 seconds.

::rofl:

I've never had a movie take that long to load unless it requires net access and the site it's after is offline or slow. Either way I'd much rather watch on PS3 than suffer the lower quality of PC playback, both in sound and video department.

Well, the test really doesn't have anything to do with the 360, since the 360 can't even play Blu-Ray movies to begin with :p

It was a reference to the constant read speed of the ps3 bluray player vs the normal variable read speed on the 360 (where devs can put heavy accessed files where they are red the fastest)

The 360 might not be able to play your bluray movies but it will toast your bread if you hold them by the air out take in the back :p

Yea, I'm guessing this is like a completely off test or something. It really doesn't any longer to play a BD movie in the ps3 than popping a dvd into a dvd player.

EDIT: Those guys are slow. It took me 20 seconds to power on the PS3 and the controller. Stick the BD disc into the ps3. Click which profile I wanted, browse to the Video tab and press X. It then took the PS3 17 seconds to resume playing Casino Royale where it left off from last time I had it in the PS3. It might take a couple more seconds if there was some fancy menu, but if they used the autoplay feature it would probably load faster than me having to select what I wanted to view.

Is anyone really surprised?

If any of the other BluRay players have even CLOSE to the CPU computing power of the PS3 I'd be surprised. The cell might be hard to program for but I imagine it's pretty powerful when it comes to videos, not to mention the GPU being more powerful than what you'll find in the average BluRay player either

Probably more to it than CPU. More to do with the mostly software based way the PS3 does BD compared to purely Hardware players.
