Well I didn't really know that the model of PSP affects the load times. How long does it normally take to load on a PSP-1000? Seeing as I have a PSP-2000, it only takes about 30 seconds to a minute, with the occasional two-and-a-half minute boss loading. Though one thing I do have to complain about is the game rubber-banding me on the jumping trials! >.<
OK, that's a bit of a difference alright, but unless I'm trying to do the same thing over and over again without success like when I was trying to do level 4 of the jumping trial, I wouldn't find it that bad.
Maybe not when compared to worse PSP games (the port of Spectral Souls II springs readily to mind) but it's still bad when compared to the better PS2 port (despite its godawful default CG opening) or the superior PC version.
The graphics look like ass. Compare to Falcom's port of Oath (or I-II Complete in the guise of Chronicles, or the Sora no Kiseki games, or Gurumin, or Zwei, or...) to see that they could have done so much better. Sure, there's always going to be a hit due to the limitations of the PSP when compared to a PC's screen but Napishtim's problems go beyond that.
That's where CFW comes in handy -- my PSP 1000 runs those areas just fine! I remember how bad the trials used to be, but then I overclocked my PSP, set it to 333 Mhz, and load the game directly off of my memory stick. Yeah, Konami sucks for making me *have to* use CFW to play the game *almost perfectly*, BUT knowing that I can, is better than sitting here thinking I can't and that the game sucks and it's all Konami's fault -- however true that last part may be!

I can't complain about the load times on my psp 3000 Definitely better than playing Ys 1-3 on the 1x CD rom of my Turbo Duo Just found the game used for $7 and loving it. I already bought Ys 7 and (pre ordered) Oath to play after.
