How Long From Cross Media Bar To Avatar?

10 replies 4 views Edited Dec 5, 2009

So we all know that since past updates, Home is taking an extremely long time to load, but have you ever actually timed it? Out of curiosity, I did, and it took an agonizing 3 minutes and 6 seconds from the time I selected Home in the XMB, to actually seeing my avatar. 

 

I know everyones times will vary (especially during the "verifying purchased content"), but is anyone getting in much faster/longer. I am running a high speed wired connection so I would assume I'm on the fast end. It has been like this for quite a while, so is this something we're going to have to get used to, or should we expect some reasonable load times in the future?

I just timed it. It took:3 minutes and 1 second.

 

It actually used to be longer for me, but I had reinstalled Home so now it's going through it's temporary fast loading period until I download a bunch of spaces.

When I hit the HOME icon on the XMB, it takes 3 minutes and 45 seconds for my avatar to appear in HOME. And another 3 minutes for my avatar in HOME to fully download, and stop seeing ghost avatars in Central Plaza.

Haven't timed mine yet, but it would be interesting to see how the timing is affected by either the number of items actually purchased in your wardrobe/furniture, or the total number of items in your collection, or if it's just 'Net connection related.  Could you guys quantify your posts with rough ideas of how many items you have?  No need to list the cost, just a general idea of how massive your inventory is.  I know I have almost all of the free/reward items and the Brees Jersey, and it definitely takes more than a minute to load...

If you delete home then reinstall it, it will go much faster then it previously did, but not by a lot.
