I’ve got some good news the next update for the PlayStation 4 (4.50 update) will include more hard drive disk space for more games this is great for gamers who don’t want to use external hardrives.

Starting today, those of you selected for our beta program will get an early peek at some of the new features coming to PS4 with our next major system software update, version 4.50 (codenamed Sasuke). If you signed up for the beta and were chosen, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to download and get started.

Even if you’re not participating in the beta, we still wanted to give you a quick glance of the key features that will be rolling out with this update. We’re refining the user interface of PS4 even further, and adding highly requested features like external HDD support and custom wallpapers.

In order to add additional hardrive space you have to have a external Hard disk drive, you simply connect it to your PS4 via USB, you will be able to add up to 8TB or data to your PS4 via your external hard disk drive, this is the new feature that will be available once update 4.50 is released to the public.

Well worry no more; you can now connect a USB 3.0 external HDD and download, save and install games, apps and add-ons directly onto your removable HDD. You can also move any games and apps you’ve already saved onto it to help you stay organised.

When you connect the external HDD, everything will be accessible from your PS4 Home Screen as normal. What’s more, your PS4 will support an external HDD up to 8TB in size, giving you a huge amount of space to play with.

      1. Yeah, it may a phenomenal update, as it’ll allow folks to use their own hard drives. The only problem is, do you have to reformat it into fat32 or NTFS. Or will they be both compatible. Honestly, it isn’t hard to do the formatting, just a hassle.
