Will it be within the PS4s lifetime that we will see ultra fast load times if fany for video games?

There are some games with almost no load times. It all really depends on the game and developer. Do I think that there will be a time during the PS4's lifetime where all games load at super speeds? No.
ive never asked this before lol. when will you actually answer the questions and not be a smart **bleep** about why i ask certain questions??
Personally, as long as they're shorter than Watch Dog's, I think I'll be happy!
But... I would imagine we will. They're already pretty decent, considering the size of areas the loading screens provide us. Look at AC4, for example. You can scourge the entire ocean without loading barriers. Pretty fantastic. The problem is that areas keep getting bigger and denser, compensating for the advances. Hurray, circles!! haha
When you buy an SSD.
the PS4 is SATA II. SSD won't change much.
Actually, the PS4 has a SATA 3 controller. And uses a SATA 2 hdd.
People who have the 1TB SATA 3 Hybrid drives are seeing very fast load times already.
And people who have SATA 3 SSDs in their PS4's have near instant load times. Particularly if the game only requires 1 long load screen, such as Watch Dogs.
Otherwise, most games on PS4 don't actually have load times because for those with the physical copy of the game, the console is reading data from both the disc and the hdd.
I have yet to come across any game that I own, that has a load time aside from the initial startup of the game.
