PS4 Will Soon Support External Hard Drives
The PlayStation 4's next update will finally give users the ability to add additional storage via external hard drives.
So without having to replace the existing storage device that's in the box, owners can now just plug up an additional storage device, similar to how the Xbox One does. The update is called 4.50 (catchy, right?) and it enters beta today. We expect to see the full update roll out in a month or two.
Any USB 3.0 hard drive will work, and the PS4 will be able to support up to 8TB of storage, so suffice to say you'll be set for the rest of the generation. In addition to the external hard drive support, the menu will get a slight redesign, and custom wallpapers will be introduced. Also, the Blu-Ray player will now support stereoscopic 3D movies when using the PSVR.
Pretty neat update. It's nice to see more options for storage, especially since the standard 500GB on most PS4 devices is kinda a joke.
