    However, PlayGo "is two separate linked systems," Cerny said. The other is to do with the Blu-ray drive -- to help with the fact that it is, essentially, a bit slow for next-gen games.

    "So, what we do as the game accesses the Blu-ray disc, is we take any data that was accessed and we put it on the hard drive. And if then if there is idle time, we go ahead and copy the remaining data to the hard drive. And what that means is after an hour or two, the game is on the hard drive, and you have access, you have dramatically quicker loading... And you have the ability to do some truly high-speed streaming."

    And he didn't say anything about the data only being temporary. We definitely need more clarification on this.

    So is it that one chunk of 50gb is required and they all use that same chunk?

    Meh either way a new 1TB+ is a must, if not for PS+ alone.

    I assume it works this way because if you don't have 50gb the only thing that will change is you will get longer load times because the HDD won't be able to help with streaming.

    The word "required" really is misleading

    We will see mandatory installs... Maybe not with sony first party titles but every other game you can expect it.

    It would be wise for sony to do mandatory installs in the future, it's the key to moving ahead.
