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

    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 Eurogamer 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!

    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

    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 .

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

    The faster loading times would just make sense, I mean the cell that powers the PS3 Slim is more powerful then the cell found in the PS3 Phat.

    A couple of seconds here and there don't make a difference to me, if it speeds up install time by a matter of minutes, then i might care a little bit, but i dont mind waiting a little bit for a game to start... that's what tv's for

    I dont think they will add Slim Exclusive updates. here is not much difference internally from the slim to the regular one.

    If they do add exclusives, then it would seriously hurt their game base people who have the regular ps3 and such.
