Imagine instead of waiting 30 seconds in between each loading screen, it was 3 seconds. Installs would takes only seconds. My Windows 7 PC with an SSD boots in 15 seconds ready to go.
I think your under some delusions as to the issue with PS3 load times. The issue was not the HD speed, the issue was the BD read speed. They load quite a bit slower than DVD drives and stuff like that. Installing to the HD just helps with the load times for some games, for others its basically manditory. You cant actually do a full install to the HD and bypass the slow BD player. And if you have to install all your games on a USB external drive, how will that help at all? If anything that would load slower than an internal HD. You only have 16gb of internal memory, thats NOTHING for a PS3 where most games have about a 4 gig manditory install.
Seems like a huge hassle to constantly have to rotate 2 or 3 games on and off the internal memory. Like i said im really hoping for a 160gb sale. Looks like a few others are too
