I seriously need to do this, I have a feeling I'm going to run out fast with all the DL-games and updates.

psnCAShville_6151352d ago

well it depends, are you buying alot of sport games? because every year they become useless, indie games are another thing you go so far in it then you decide to hug another one up for a week or two! ill show you how..

-Delete the last game on your ps4 that you played download new one or try another- dont like it? delete it.

this way you dont have to do anything. and its priceless

That's a good point, my problem is I play all the games I buy, like I'll randomly pick them up and play them 6 months after getting them.

Do it now before you have too much on your PS4. I upgraded to a 1tb hybrid on first day in preparation for PS+, it's a bit crap at the moment but as soon as the good games become available you'll need the space.

Free games are like Pokémon, gotta catch 'em all!

Yea, i too need to upgrade the HDD for PS4. One day i will until there is a reason for me to upgrade it. But for now i think for me
500 GB is plenty

I normally buy games on disc, although they can take up quite a bit of space on the HD.

If I need space , I can just delete the game data (if and when I run out of space) , and when I feel the need to play again, its a few minutes install (you can play most games before a complete install) , then the dreaded update (in most cases for online)

Simples.

Btw , as a PS4 only owner (at this point) , I'm very jelly of One's external storage......

Im glad I can update the internal on the PS4, but Ext support would be an awesome addition.

Point is, its easier and quicker for PS4 owners whom own a physical disc.

superchiller1351d ago

You do know that even PS4 disc games fully install to the internal HDD? You're not saving space by buying physical games (I do prefer physical games myself, but I buy plenty of digital games too).

As an example, look at Wolfenstein for PS4; the physical disc version requires 49gb, same as digital.

Destiny would have put me at -15GB if that were even possible before I did this. Mandatory full installs are killin' me!

KingKelloggTheWH1352d ago

Dang, how many games you got?

BananasGoldsteinberg1352d ago

7-8 disc based games and then all the PS+ goodness. I'm actually surprised I held out as long as I did.

user3672721352d ago

Sony, give us gamers The option to use our own external HDD like the other console please. That would solve all the mandatory install issue as more games are coming out.

BananasGoldsteinberg1352d ago

That definitely would have been an easier option than having to redownload everything. This HDD would even still have a been a good deal for that.

2TB external HDDs sell for 60$ very often. Just keep an eye out on Newegg / TigerDirect / Frys / etc.

Pretty much how all my consoles have 2TB (the ones that support it anyway).

I would be wary of upgrading the RPM unless you have the newer models for PS3 / 360.

Old models had heating issue, and adding a higher RPM HDD only adds more heat

KingKelloggTheWH1352d ago

Crap that is a good deal! I needed one, time to go a lookin.

lashes2ashes1352d ago

One problem with that. Unless something changed you can't use external hdd with a ps4.

WildArmed1351d ago

Right, all you want to do it take out the HDD from the case, and plug it into the PS4. Like they did in the article.
