    I recently had Ni No Kuni freeze on me when loaded via external hard drive. I was curious if there is a significant decreased risk of freezing when loading internally, as opposed to an external drive. Or is any difference in reliability negligible. Thanks.

    PS: The above question can be applied to any ps3 game, not just the one I mentioned.

    AFAIK, all models of PS3 use USB 2.0 ports, meaning they have a max transfer speed of about 480mbps (or something like 60MB/s I think) whereas the internal SATA connection is...I think 1.5gbps (or something like 200MB/s), so games would load quicker on the internal drive.
