We all know how it is to come home from a long day and wanting to kick up our feet and play some video games. The unfortunate part is that when we commit to playing a game, we must commit to the waiting times associated with loading the game up. This causes frustration and ultimately takes away from the time we have to sit down and actually play the game. When talking about the Xbox One S and comparing it to the new Xbox One X being released this year, we definitely have something to look forward to, however.

Xbox One X proves it values speed

When compared to the Xbox One S, the new “X” version sports dramatically faster load times for games loaded onto its internal HDD.

Fro example, slow loading times have always been an issue for GTA 5 players. (Of course, the game also crashes, especially after the latest Windows 10 updates, but there’s plenty you can do to prevent that.) Fortunately, users noticed the previous load time of 1:07 on the Xbox One S was vastly improved on the Xbox One X to a super snappy 24 seconds.

Players of GTA V are happy about the new improvement yet they still think game developers can improve loading times even more. But it’s not all on them: there some things you could be doing yourself to make sure that your game loads as fast as possible.

It seems to be a problem especially in the multiplayer platform of the game. Here is what one gamer had to say on Reddit:

Done it, but that only resolves the issue of getting to multiplayer in general (if ever so slightly). Then you have to try to party up, get everyone in the same lobby, find a game, wait on everyone to join, wait on more players to join, play game, repeat process to enter free roam or a different game lobby.

For now, we must wait until November 7th, the date the Xbox One X is officially released, to fully enjoy the new features.
