I will buy a new 4TB once they announce the news.

That is just an invitation for piracy.

False. The only response Sony needs right now is faster updates for the PS4 and the PlayStation App. Let's have the majority of the PS4's features available for the majority of the PS4's lifespan.

M$ has been dropping the ball with the XB1 since their E3 press conference last June and they continue to do so. This was their shot at making their system BETTER then the PS4 yet they threw away another oppurnity b/c the people at the head of the  gaming division are morons. Not that I want  the XB1 to be bettter then the PS4 but I like pointing out how stupid M$ is. 

 

So now the new Xbox will be equal to, not better then the PS4 so how is that suppose to help generate more sales? What they should have done is drop the kinect, drop the price by $100 and thrown in a 1TB HDD, but the problem with that is that its a huge slap in the face to the core base gamers who paid $500 7 months ago for a 500 HD unit with a kinect that they didnt want. So as usual M$ continues to make mistakes all steming back from E3 where they laid the ground work for choices that will never be right with this console for a long time, they keep tripping over their own shoe laces.


its easy to spin it and make anything look bad what you dislike a company just for the sake of disliking them, but the fact is microsoft is trying to improve their product and put themselves in a better position to catch up with sony in the sales department.  This, folks, is what proper competion is all about..

 

How is Microsoft not installing a 1TB drive in the XB1 any different then sony not doing it?  Both of them should have offered 1TB to start with.  500gb is a joke with the CURRENT game sizes.

I'm that type of gamer that once I'm offically %100 done with a game I delete it and sell it on Amazon. So my HD memory doesn't run very high. However, I purchased a 1 TB HD upgrade for my PS4 day one!!! 500gb is not enough at all and soon I believe we'll see games at 50gb. Maybe even higher Man Sad. But in the time being I'm perfectly fine with a TB, but 500gb....not in your life sport.

There's the June update that will add an external HDD. That should help with storage issues. But it's still not as good as being able to install a bigger HDD into the PS4. That's a PS4 advantage IMO.

That will never happen... For the same reason why external hard drives on the ps3 can only be used for backup or media storage, they don't want you to be able to pirate the games.. Hence why games can only be installed to the internal hard drive, I would safely assume it will be the same when Sony decides to add external hd support to the ps4..

I don't see why piracy should be an issue with using external drives for games so long as a  physical media [disc] check is also used with it.

You forget games can also be purchased digitally, no discs required to run digitally purchased games.
