How much storage memory will the PlayStation 4 have?

11 replies 168 views Edited Jul 31, 2013

Not the RAM, the storage. Xbone has 500 GB.

 

Also, the RAM for PS4 is 8GB GDDR5

 


Someone tell me what GDDR5 means

The PS4 will launch with a 500 GB hard drive. You can swap out the hard drive for a bigger one.

PS4 comes with 500GB, but can be upgraded.

 

GDDR5 RAM is significantly faster than DDR3 and is typically found on GPUs.  As far as I know, the PS4 will be the first consumer product to use GDDR5 as system RAM.  The standard RAM used in even the most advanced, high-end PCs is DDR3.

GDDR stuff is faster than the stuff Xbox One has. At launch the PS4 will have 500GB hard drive. No doubt though future PS4's will have 1 TB or larger hard drives out of the box.

How do I upgrade it to lets say 1TB? Where do I buy what I need? How much will it cost? Is 500GB enough for several years?

I imagine upgrading the PS4 HDD will be as simple as upgrading the PS3 HDD.

 

Basically, it's just a standard notebook HDD.  2.5" SATA.

500 gigs will last me personally a good long time, unless you are downloading the majority of your games or storing alot of video or music files on your ps4 you should be fine with 500 gig. I have been using a 250 gig system for a long time even with dlc i never filled it up, And even if you do you can always free up space.

When the console is available at launch, the PS4 will have 500GB but you can change the HDD for a bigger one in place.
