If I have a digital copy of a PSP game, and that game has a Data Install option, to reduce load time, (for example, Dissidia Final Fantasy, or Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker) will it actually benefit me to Install the Data?

I know it helps speed up load times with a UMD, but if it's a digital copy, and already fully on the memory stick, will it do anything to install the data?

Basically, will my digital copy of a game benefit from Data Install, or is it already loading "fastest" by just being on the memory stick?

Data Install is for hard copy games. DD PSP games are naturally fast. The only exception is Peace Walker. Despite having the DD version, I had to Data Install about 300MB so the com voices during missions would be enabled.

The difference should be negligible, if any at all. A couple of games do require install for voice-overs, Peace Walker and Mana Khemia.
