    Say goodbye to lengthy pre-installs with the PS4

    Lovin these new features.
    Hopefully waiting on patches will also be a thing of the past.

    *Thank goodness! The lengthy pre-install process hassle that plagued the PlayStation 3 over the past seven years will not be a problem on the PS4. Technically, the PS4 will still require you to install a game, but this time around you'll be able to play while it installs in the background.

    The same technology that allows the PS4 to play a game as it's being downloading, will also allow the system to play a game while it's being installed from a disc, according to Sony's Neil Brown.

    "A similar system also works on Blu-ray, chunks are automatically copied to the hard drive in the background," Brown explained to Develop attendees today. "This means that after the first few minutes your game can rely on having faster read speeds from the hard drive.

    *"They don't have to wait for anything to install before playing the game. The game will launch as soon as the disc has been put in the drive," he added. According to Brown this will be "a completely background process" that should provide "a better experience for players."

    Getting to play a game immediately, without having to wait at least 20 minutes while it installs? Yea, I'd say it will be a better experience. At the same event, Brown explained that the download while you play feature will also make accessing your digital library on a friend's PS4 a viable option.

    Not confirmed from what I have seen but as we can play while it downloads i'd assume not!?

    Faster internet is beneficial for gaming in general, but it's nice we'll be able to do this. Waiting sucks.

    Yes, but likely the disc will need to stay in the drive.
    Drive speeds are seen as a bottleneck and installing to the harddrive is the solution.

    Whoever thought of this secondary chip deserves a fricken medal
