    So from what I can understand, now you can put an iso directly onto a flash drive or an external hard drive and load from it?

    Wouldn't more people prefer to save space on their flash drives because the games are usually a few gigs each and I imagine would quickly take up a lot of space? Or am I missing here? And also, does the mean there will be a lack of support for DVD loading now? All I see now are topics about USB loading x_x

    Most games will shrink to a lot less than 4.7GB when put on hard drive.
    And external HDD's can be quite big. 1TB is not a problem, so that's a whole lot of games.

    Also, games running via USB HDD run faster than retail discs, cutting load times even for your legitimate games. There's no reason to use your real discs anymore either. XD
