My experience with GT5-Prologue is waiting to play the game. PS-3, as a rule is fantastically fast, except when first loading a game. If think GT-5p took about 4 minutes (my download bandwidth was about 23 Mbps at that time + disc loading and game formatting)

Ok I see, your talking about install & update times not load times.

GT5P does download a portion of the game to your hard drive & they have updated the game so that required a download over the internet.

Shouldn't we all see the same install and update time?

Well, maybe not!

Same install times but my internet is just 3meg so I bet my update download was slower than yours!

That is a long time kenny. I guess you microwave some chicken wings, and popcorn while you wait.
