    n00b question: Will playing a game installed on an external hard drive have a noticeable effect on gameplay and load times etc? Or is USB 3.0 fast enough to not worry about it?

    In this case a new USB 3.0 Drive sould be faster than the installed HDD of the PS4 anyway; as the default drives are 5400RPM

    This is the same case as the XBone, where the default drive is 5400RPM. My partner had Fallout 4 on their XBone and it's load times caused hiccups in gameplay. They installed it onto a 3.0 HDD and the hitches stopped because the USB 3.0 was loading everything faster than the default drive.

    Actually I think its to combat xbox, xbox announced all games would get support with Scorpio, so Sony changed its stance so gamers can get a boost for everything right now with Pro

    Seeing as most 2.5 inch HDD are designed to run off laptops, it shouldn't effect the speeds. As they are meant to run off lower power. USB 3.0 can power a small monitor now, but I can't say what wattage a USB 3.0 port uses.
