Wait, can you actually use a USB stick to install games on?

I was browsing the BF3 boards and people were talking about installing the game to their USB sticks or something.

If that's true then I had no idea that we could do that.

I google'd this and some forum members on other sites were saying that you are required to have a 16, 32, or 64GB USB stick to be able to install games to it.

Can someone confirm this to be true or not?

I have an 8gb USB stick just lying around so I was hoping to be able to install a game on there. But if I have to upgrade to a 16GB then I suppose I will.

I do it sometimes. The load times are better, barely.

Yes, you can. GTA IV actually works better off a thumb drive than it does off the hard drive.

You can use whatever size you want up to 16GB.

Just make sure that, when you go to format it, you choose "Customize" or you will lose everything on the flash drive.
