    360 Start Up/Dashboard Time?

    Is it me or is the 360 start up time getting longer and longer and looooooooooonger.

    Just timed how long it takes for my 360 start up... 58 Seconds!!!


    Is everyone's the same? Can be a right pain in the ass.

    It primarily depends on whether it is connecting/connected to live or not.

    Seriously?! I don't own a Xbox 360 and I haven't played one much since it launched, but I would have figured by this time it would start up within seconds like the PS3 does!

    It used to...Dont know if it's due to all the content on Live but something is slowing it down over the years.

    Could be a number of reasons why. Mine has never taken that long but i have noticed since the big security update it takes a bit longer sometimes. Maybe the always online next gen xbox will take care of that. When you power it up there should be no updates or personal account info to search for making it faster.

    I agree. I've also noticed my avatar to start to spin/whirl/twirl and pause/glitch out just after he's started. But I've put that down to the console trying to connect.

    Is there a way for you to just sign in automatically (choose a default gamertag) as it starts so you don't have to click it in?

    Mine still boots up in under 10 seconds every time. I block the ads via my router, though, so maybe that has something to do with it?

    I was on Live a bit ago and kept getting signed out constantly. Got tired of it so I just went back to playing some games on my PS3 instead.

    It seems to take quite a while now that I think about it, usually around 45 seconds, I don't notice cause I boot it up, and do other stuff on my PC till its ready.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Mine takes about 1 minute as well. It takes for freaking ever. I see that circle spin and spin and spin. And it takes a long time to get into Xbox Video as well. I have not been happy with the dashboard performance at all. Love the dashboard, hate the performance.

    85 secs to get to the dash and select the game that's in the drive. don't know if having 235 games (majority arcade titles) has anything to do with the slow boot up though.

    PS3, 50secs to get to the dash and select the game in the drive. 91 games on the drive.

    Holy Smoly, I thought i was bad at 58

    Will need to try the PS3...35secs compared to 58.

    edit Seems the PS3 akes another 15-20 to connect to PSN/Store so they are both very close to a minute.

    Yep, I start up the xbox long before I actually want to start gaming. Since my computer is right next to my xbox, it doesn't bother me too much.

    I'm pretty sure if your Kinect is plugged into the console that it slows down startup a bit.
