Thread: How to Swap In / Upgrade a PS4 HDD on the PlayStation 4 Detailed

    I'd like to know when this will be available for purchase and the price.

    I went with one of those external connectors lastgen but due to the location of the HDD in the new PS4 it doesn't look like it would look too pretty having a cable run out of the top of the unit, and would probably require a custom coverplate to allow the cable to pass through.

    I'm also curious if having the empty space where the HDD is suppose to be would disrupt the intended design of airflow to the components, increasing the risk of overheating.

    The other thing is the PS4 FAQ does not mention any capacity limitation, however we all know drivers with more than 1TB of storage wouldn't recognize on the PS3, so i'd like to know if there is a limitation on the PS4 as well.

    The PS4 FAQ states no bigger than 9.5mm in height, so this HDD is good news.

    Those have been available since the dawn of SATA. A single extender cable that has both the main SATA cable and power cable. The PS4 doesn't support external HDDs?
