New Xbox360 games copied to HDD won't load much quicker, but old ones will

The Xbox Product Manager of Germany has revealed that old games such as Project Gotham Racing 3 will feature far reduced load times when installed on the Xbox 360's hard drive. However he noted that new games won't load much quicker if installed on the Xbox 360 hard drive as they have already been optimized.

Xbox Product Manager Germany Boris Schneider-Johne states in a utmost interesting interview with Golem.de that this won't be the case for the majority of 360 games.

We now allow the customer to install games on their hard drive. This is optional, you don't have to do it. But if I do it, these games will load faster because a DVD-drive with seek operation does have load times every now and then. There are prominent examples, for instance: Project Gotham Racing 3, one of the first games for the Xbox 360. There the load times have been very long; those are going to get reduced immensely. Recent games are already optimized; there the gain is relatively small.
