Discounting the piracy thing, there are heaps of other benefits I've become accustomed to and I'm not looking forward to giving up when I upgrade my consoles: - Very small, or non existent loading times. When playing something like Fifa on my Xbox, I'm amazed when I go to a friend's at just how slow the load times are. - Ability to play games previously unavailable in the UK - plenty of NTSC gems I've played on my PS2. - No need to swap discs, just load up the console and chose your game from a list; perfect! So, since both the PS3 and Xbox 360 in particular both have (or at least have the option) hard drives as standard, do you think we'll see the ability to play games from the hard drive any time soon?
