Load times are pretty much non-existent now. I can accept a quest and it will load before I even get a chance to eat. Guiding Lands went from taking 2 and a half minutes to load to only like 15 seconds. It's insane.

If you're planning on playing this game for hundreds of hours, do yourself a favor and get an SSD. It shaves off massive amounts of times, especially when you're grinding for a specific material.

I mean, that article seems awfully outdated with the pricing. I got 1Tb for a 100 bucks in Amazon and I'm sure you could get it even cheaper if you wait for Black Friday.

Not every game is gonna benefit from it, but it provided a massive boost to MHW due to the nature of the game and how there are loading screens for everything.

I have a PS4 Pro so I went with an external USB 3.0 500GB SSD after doing some research (it was around $60 USD).
I can't recommend it enough.
The Pro benefits more from an SSD than a standard PS4, but the SATAIII connection is still run through the USB BUS which creates a bottleneck and doesn't take full advantage of an SSD anyway. Going internal/external doesn't really make a difference so I picked the easiest option.

100% agreed. It’s insane how good it is.

If you plan on spending hundreds of hours playing this game, you absolutely need a SSD.

How big of a difference is it to use an SSD on a pro vs regular ps4? I've considered getting an external for my regular ps4 but have been hesitant. No intention of purchasing a pro at this point in the systems lifespan

Pro improves performance. SSD improves load times. They are not the same thing. Please stop asking this.

An SSD is basically going to cut your load times by 50%. If it took 2 minutes to load before, it will take around 1 minute. If it took a minute, it will take around 30 seconds.

Funny how we need to upgrade the storage of an already "upgraded" console that forgot to upgrade their storage even tho most spent $400 for the original ps4, then another $400 for the Pro and now an additional $100+ for an SSD. All of this to play in sub 30fsp on medium/low settings. What a deal.
