Confirmed by Yoshida himself
OMG YES SONY IS ON A ROLL BABY:D http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-T...
Shuhei Yoshida @yosp 1h And yes, PS4 is region free :D Excellent news keeps pouring in!
Someone needs to ask if external hardrdrives are suppported?I have a 3tb just waiting for it.
Of course external harddrives are supported. It has a USB port for a reason. The PS3 also supports external.. do not worry - you will definitely be able to use your external HDD.
Both ps4 and xbone supports external hdds so your covered :-)
Link??Just wanna see it with my own eyes.
what he is trying to say is if you can swap out hdd with larger size not like the xbox. In other words is it a removable hdd,,, yoshidas upgradable comment seems to say that yes it is removable so lon as it fits the ps3 you can put a TBHDD on that bad boy
yes but yoshidas comment, I believe, is referring to the fact that it is removable. meaning you can upgrade it like how you currently can with the ps3 which is marvelous of course
That was awesome!!! I hate Don Mattrick, he is so smug I just want to smash his face with a brick.
PLAYSTATION 4!!! HAHAHA best gif ever!
Hey nice gif :)
The gift that keeps on giving. Xbox One's HDD, by contrast, is not able to be swapped.
Nice well that's more good news
But XBone's HDD is not upgradable :( !
No need to upgrade it. It's all in the cloud! Edit: For an extra hundred, you can move your entire HDD to the cloud! And your system, too! lol, nah, I have no idea. Doubt it, though.
Is that what Microsoft says? Are they giving everyone a terabyte of space?
Sony has made M$ look like a bunch of XBoneheads.
I see what you did there LMFAO why do we have to wait so long
it supports external HDD. that's what i've heard.
Yes, it supports that. But the thing is, what if the main HDD brokes, the console is done because is not replaceable.
even so, external data rate is a lot slower than internal. Trust me, I have played games from an external connected to a usb 3.0 port and the load of textures and other data was very slow. Unless they have a e-sata port, that is irrelevant. O..Wait....
The good news just keeps on rolling. :D
Thats a tick in every box. Mines going straight in the pool room.
NOO! It will get wet! . . . .Oh wait. You meant billiards pool, not splashy pool? Cool. Anyway, upgradeable hdd is very good news.
No, he meant splashy pool. Like the rest of Sony's electronics, the PS4 is also waterproof. :D
Sony you already beat Microsoft. No need to kick 'em while their down. :)
Microsoft just dug their own grave. Sony came along and decided to help kick the dirt over them. lol
Sony is twisting the knife.
Why not? :p I they keep this up, the time between now an when ms throws in the towel could shorten. Just think the ms exclusives going to Sony (not that would happen if ms did leave the console race). I gave ms some Benicia of the doubt today but they just dropped the ball and Sony picked it up. I'll miss halo but final fantasy always get my vote :)
Sony is like that Mad Max trailer. Why waste a bullet when you can run them over with your hype car/train. When is this good news gonna stop...my heart can't take it. I don't wanna die before the PS4 come out.
someone needs to kazify all the M$ and Sony trailers asap. there's too much laughs to be had
it's that kaz train baby
Sony isn't doing it lol, Sony just put together a system. One naturally lower in cost predetermined. One without DRM. One that has a more ram. MS just put together a system of rules that made them look really stupid, Sony is just going along for the ride at this point, there is no need for them to make them look stupid. Ask a question if you disagree, I'll gladly prove my point.
I hope you dont have to buy that caddy crap like the slims. It should come with the machine like my fat.
I've changed the disk in my slim without buying anything extra. What caddy crap are you talking about? The tray it sits in?
sorry, I meant the super slim. I believe you need a caddy for it. yes, that little tray they sell separately.
Oh my gaaaawwwed i have been looking for the answer to this for a while now. Woooo! Sony is on Fire.
This and region-free are the cherries on what has been a historic day for PS4, Sony and gamers.
The cake is NOT a lie.
This is great news.
Wow this is great news. I upgraded my PS3 to a 750gb HDD when my original HDD decided to die on me. No big deal since I had wanted to upgrade it all along. So I will most likely do an upgrade to the PS4 as well. Especially if I start buying a lot of digital titles.
Wow. Sony has absolutely gone all out in ensuring this device satisfies consumers purely while MS has gone the dark route of satisfying corporate interests.. While MS had the stronger exclusive initial line up it doesnt make up for all the advantages PS4 has shown
whats next!? the ps4 can make you a sammich???
it have a cup-holder AFAIK
State of the art Foreman Grill baby!
It's like a group of gamers sat around and designed their dream console. There's seriously been no fault aside from now paying for online play (which I have PS+ anyways because it's worth it for content alone).
That fact still bothers me. I have had PS+ since day one because for the extra games and other features it has been worth it. But I have always had an issue when someone has to pay to play online. I won't disconnect my Plus account nor will I skip the PS4 but it just sucks that they had to go that route. I just hope that one Plus account will allow anyone on that system to game online. Kind of like how right now anyone on the system can play any of the games that were downloaded for free.
Servers cost money to build and run, if your doing cloud storage and running persistent worlds you need to spend alot on servers.
Trust me I know that fact. I work in a data center so I am well aware how much that stuff can cost. It is just I always talked against the 360 because MS locked down MP behind Gold live along with a lot of the other features. I always thought that putting the features behind Gold but making MP free would have been great. Now however Sony does the opposite. However if PSN shows a marked improvement over what it has been with PS3. Then it will be well worth it. Honestly the fee is already worth it for the free games I have gotten. I just don't want to have to pay multiple times for more than one Plus account. I am married and my kids as well as my wife like to game. My wife games online and my oldest son is getting to the age where soon he will be gaming online as well.
Sony this generation is still the lesser of two evils. Last gen: it was online paywalls, region locks, HDD that can't be upgraded This gen: Always on, forced cameras, DRM, region locks, HDD that can't be upgraded, etc. etc.
Just been confirmed on another article.
I have a 750GB in my ps3, here's hoping 2TB fits and is reasonable by release.
Thank you based Yoshida.
Sony. STAHP! STAHP! The coffin has no more room for another nail. XD
Maybe if you put the coffin inside a coffin, you will have more space for the nails :)
Shu is active on his 2nd job on twitter, lets go give him a hug :D
Expected, yet still, really great news! Now if only all my PS3 content could carry over! But still, this is great, I need to grab a bigger HDD for PS4 considering it's tough squeezing in room for games via PS+ as it is. _____________________________ NOT TO BE TRUSTED: ---------------------------- http://n4g.com/user/comment... http://n4g.com/user/comment... http://n4g.com/user/comment... Be wary of mis-information from these members, they will not hesitate to blatantly lie.
Lol,they're just mad Sony shut them up about "DRM" and always online bs.
They are retarded. a) Sony isn't in debt. They actually are even going into PS4 sales. b) Hasn't said anything about the yearly PSN account even then (I don't need it cause I can play single player games without it). c) (honestly) Ryse wasn't that good of a game . . . but then again I don't like God of war type games anyway. d) PS4 is just a better console. What are these idiots smoking? Very much in denial.
All I needed to know.
Awesome!!! I have a question for PS+ subscribers. Will a year of PS+ Fill a 500gb hard drive with all the free games you receive weekly? I did not like swapping hard drives this gen and always regretted not doing it "Day one". I think a 1Tb might be a wise choice this gen.
Probably not, might come close depending on how much you game, with many games requiring installs, however it's not hard to go to Game Data and remove older games you have finished to free up space.
Also not hard to go back and re download a title you may have deleted but want to play again. @meplaygames below While yes you can add an external drive to the XBOX One the reason why we are excited with the PS4 is the fact you can swap out the current drive and it keeps it internal. That means no unneeded external connection. Seriously with the XBOX One you are looking at the big bulky console taking up room. Then you add in the Kinect. Another dongle to connect your cable box to the One and lastly if you want more storage space you have to add an external hard drive. I don't know about you but that is just too much stuff that now has to sit on my entertainment center or on a dresser or whatever you might have the console on.
Nah, I have downloaded almost everything PS+ has to offer and only had to delete game data once. I only have a 320gb HDD and I have 40 gigs left. GT5's game data had to go once I finished playing it though, that was 10 gigs alone.
Thank for the response. Game installs killed me this gen and i have to delete them frequently. Trying to be prepared next Gen.
It depends. I fill my PS3 with content from the browser, psn, usb and dvd-r's.
Technically I can store games in the cloud.
This is great news. But why is everyone using this as a plus for the ps4 when any external hdd can be used to extend the storage of the xbone via usb 3 connection? You can install games and download software directly to an external hdd so no big deal.
That's another great news I wanted to hear and has now been finally confirmed! A big YES to that!!
