    Just wondering do games with optional install to reduce load times matter if you're running the game off memory card?

    What I mean is will installing the game reduce load times even further when running the game off memory card?

    Really, that's the long answer too. All installing does is put the game data on the memory card to be read faster than it would off the UMD. There is no possible way to actually install something that is already installed to begin with.

    Thanks, saves me more space on the memory card I guess.

    Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker requires install data when you run the game, but most games do not need data install if you run it of via memory card.

    Not exactly, no player is obliged to install it to play. (Although will be missing the in-game codec audio if not.)
