Hey guys,i know that seems strange but i was wondering what would happen if i installed games on an external hard drive. I think it would not affect game performance because it's loaded to the ram but just loading times... Can i have a confirmation?

I can't see there be any issue with it, should be limited to whatever the read/write speed of the external drive itself is rather than the USB speed.
