Long Initial Load

When I first start the game, the loading screen with the ring in the corner usually goes on for at least 45 seconds. Does this happen to anyone else?

@CounterShock: Working as intended.

Remember that the PS3 only has a 2x Bluray drive, and Uncharted 3 has no mandatory install.

I remember having that issue with Uncharted 2. The loading screen went on for 2 mins one time! I started freaking out because I thought my disc was broken or something. I never really did anything to fix it. The problem just went away on its own.

That's normal. After that big one, there aren't any other loads while playing, unless you pause. Then the autosave kicks in.

You know I appreciate that the game is so good on checkpoints but my god... it saving EVERY time you open the pause menu is kind of annoying.

I believe it was long for every Uncharted.

Oh I remember it was pretty long for the first one.  But I only played in 5 hour long intervals so I dont remember how long it was for the second time I had to load the game from the start menu

Yup, just noticed this last night. But it's not really that bad, seeing as how the game doesn't have to load at all after that.

It's a necessary evil, in my opinion. God of War 3 had the same thing, if I recall correctly. Just have a magazine on your coffee table or wherever. It's totally worth not having any other loads.
