PS4 Hard Drive Options?

by B-ry_Juarez / November 12, 2013 10:28 AM PST

With the increasing quality of games a lot of hard drive space will be taken up by game cache ex. (COD: Ghost PS4 49GB minimum). I would like to know possible options for replacements. The PS4 uses a 500GB 5400RPM SATA II and its only requirements for replacements are it has to 9.5mm thick and more than 160GB.

I've seen a lot of those links already but they don't actually show any suggestions. There was one recommended but it was $600 way to pricey for me.Another one that was recommended was too big, dimension wise not data space wise.

As more is published, you may get what you want.

Did you post on one of those sites that published the article or email an author asking then to clarify what your concern was?

PS> Sorry but we have a PS3 and can't justify the PS4 yet.
