No more waiting around for games to install completely with the PS4

You'll be able to play games after 10 seconds worth of installation

Mark Cerny has given an indication of just how quickly gamers will be able to jump in and play their new PS4 games.

The PS4, like the PS3, will have a mandatory installation from almost all disc games which will allow the games to run at optimum level. With PS4 games the install size could dwarf those that featured on the PS3 with Knack installing a whopping 37GB onto the hard drive before playing.

Unlike with the PS3, gamers on the PS4 will not have to wait around twiddling their thumbs while these installations take place. Cerny explained that, with Knack as an example, players will have to wait around 10 seconds before they can start playing their games.

The PS4 is due out in North America this Friday the 15th of November. European gamers will have to wait until November the 29th to get their hands on the PS4 though.
