    the discs are DVD's 4.7gb or 8.5gb dual layer like xbox360. loading times arent cool, the cube didnt have long loading times (u barely noticed) because the discs were small so it was quicker to read, but the Wii needed to have DVD because u can put much more on that then u could on a gamecube disc.

    hey you cant ask that question...look at the other threads and look for "i played the wii"...it talks about this kid who played one at his gamestop..he played excite truck, and he said it loaded immeadiatly right from the disc chanel, and right after you pick your car for the race. So yes it will load very fast...and yes i do get annoyed from long loading times..my old ps2 drove me crazy...piece of CRAP!

    well Cap'n crunch, i dont think anyone would actually think that far ahead, no one would think about going to a "i played the Wii" thread to find out about this. Most people in those threads just ask how did it feel playing the Wii and such. This is a very good question and he CAN ask it cause there arn't many threads if any at all.

    Anyways back on track
    The Wii should have pretty good loading times, from what i've seen in some games the loading times look pretty darn fast if you ask me. But i know what you mean for the 360, takes a helluva long time to load it.
    *shakes head*

    From what I've heard... loading times aren't that bad at all.

    Anything's better than the reported 9 mintues loading time of the PS3 (well, installation time to be more precise)...


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    When I played Excite Truck there were no loading screens. Might just be that one game, but still it was quick and fast. When the race finished and I clicked retry a second later the race was on.

    Wow.
