PlayStation 4 Not Supporting External Hard Drives, Replacement Options Exist

In what Sony is calling the Ultimate FAQ on their PlayStation blog today, Sony answered a multitude of questions people have been asking about the PlayStation 4. Among them were questions regarding the system’s hard drive. Considering the push for digital content and increasingly demanding storage needs, the hard drive is a huge concern for most people looking to buy a PS4. Although you won’t be able to connect an external hard drive to your PS4, Sony listed options for replacement drives that meet certain specifications.

The PlayStation 4 uses a 5400 RPM SATA II hard drive, so users can replace the drive given that the replacement is of the same type and contains more than 160GB of storage. Upgrading the drive will definitely be an option in the long-run for any potential PS4 buyers, so if storage was your main concern with the system, you can rest easy.
