I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Sorry Folks, Xbox One Games Will Have Loading Screens

Posted on Thursday, September 5 @ 12:54:27 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


If you thought next-gen consoles were going to do away with loading screens entirely, you're about to be sorely disappointed. According to Microsoft's Albert Penello, some Xbox One games will require you to wait.

“You know, I think it’s going to depend on the game,” Penello told Rev3Games. “I’m sure there will still be loading screens, when you have these massive worlds and you’re loading a lot of data. But it’s really up to the developer.”

Ultimately, Penello went on to point out, it has everything to do with the skill of the teams developing next-gen games. "If you look at games like Grand Theft Auto that have these huge open worlds, you very rarely encounter hiccups and loading screens," he explained. "I think developers are getting more sophisticated, technology’s more sophisticated, and we’re putting things in the hardware to make it easier. I would like to see it, if not go away, at least be significantly reduced.”

Do you find loading screens to be a major bother? Are you severely bummed they aren't going away for good? Sound off in the comments below and let us know.
