  1. I’ve never bought a game on cart, but I think the game can be played off the cart directly without needing to be installed. Similar to how Nintendo handles 3DS games. Just pop the cart in and go.

    It was only needed for PS4 and XBO due to the size of the games. Loading that much data off of disk is much slower than it is off the hard drive. Reading from Flash memory on cart or Flash memory in system doesn’t save you any time.

  2. you have to install the games icon and any updates before you can play it but most games have small updates or none so use only a few mb for the icon and save file

    some games have huge updates though and some have medium sized updates , for example killzone mercenary uses about 2,6 GB for updates and call of duty declassified was around 550mb or so

    some games also have a code to download some content or are like the game final fantasy x , x02 remastered where only one of the games fits on the card and the other is downloaded.

    when you buy a used game you will also see a message saying trophies can not be earned as they are registered to another user ( something like that anyway ) so if you want to start over and get the trophies you have to install the icon on the psvita then delete it so it deletes the old save file , then turn the vita off then on to install it again

    my advice is get a 16 or 32GB memory card as soon as you can because they fill up really fast and some games take more than 6GB if you download them
