With the release of firmware 4.5 for the Playstation 4, we, the gamers, now have a feature we have craved for a long time… the ability to download and store our games on an external hard drive. This means we now can keep our libraries intact and not have to worry abput what to delete or replace as our collection grows past the capacity of the built in storage.
Minimum HDD spec
The most important thing to remember before you buy a new storage device – or try to use one you already own – is to make sure it meets the minimum requirements for use with your PS4:
Connection: USB 3.0 or later
Storage: 250GB (min) – 8TB (max)
Note: There is no guarantee that all USB storage devices are compatible with your system.
