Bayonetta Sadly Takes An Age To Load On Playstation 3.

One such problem is the game's extortionate load times (25 seconds for a level!!!). A patch is currently "under consideration" but SEGA don't have a time-frame yet. Hopefully they can at least get the game loading properly before the Western release in early January.

If ever a problematic port were to drive us to drink, long load times would be a lead culprit. We care very little for the minuscule aliasing and framerate differences some websites are keen to cover - but load times. Man do they annoy us.
