We don't even know the full hardware spec for the PS4 and if it will fully support SSD's by having a SATA3 connection, TRIM and Garbage Collection Support.

So all you're doing is speculating based off of the PS3's specs.

If someone wants to spend money on an SSD for their PS3, let them.... sooner or later we will all find out the truth.

Plus an SSD is best tested when loaded with lots of data.


im not saying it wouldnt work...  people have been using ssds in the ps3,,, im just questioning the price that must be spent on getting one of thise drives especially when the only benefit is loading times which is not by much by the way..  when there are better solutions at much better prices...  especially with what da1writer stated he could get a 1tb sshd for a fraction of the cost of a ssd and get the best of both worlds

it still should be able to act as a backup tool..

with the ps3 you can use a external drive as a backup device as long as the drive is formatted in fat32

 

update... the only thing thats been confirmed is that much like the ps3 you cannot use a external drive for installed games.... but it seems you can still use them in the way the ps3 could use them

Haha I'm not rich.. But I have no problem spending the extra coin for the performance boost.. I have an intel SSD in my ps3 and it's noticeable everywhere... Game saves , especially large in game saves like fallout , texture loading... The XMB flies, downloadable games start up and play instantly... And the PS3 controller is only SATA 1.5gbs...

So yeah the 840 pro 512gb costs more than the ps4, but I can't wait to see the performance I get out of SATA 6gbs

Whether the PS4 supports TRIM is irrelevant on SSDs that have native garbage collection.. In older cheaper SSDs this was a concern.

Glad to see it made some great improvements for ya, especially since you have the money to do so...

 

I still believe those who don't want to break the bank ($105 for the SSHD > $435 SSD),

but want High performance like an SSD (Sata III, 6GB's = Sata III, 6GB's - practically the same?),

and High Capacity (1TB > 512GB) ... 

My suggestion is the better option if you think about it Smiley Wink!

 I already spent over $400 on my PS4 and a game (and the PS4 Camera) , can't see myself spending another $400+ , rather spend the $105 and get something on par/better - my opinion of course Smiley Wink!

Yeah SATA3 = 6gbs

Nothing has been confirmed as to what type of drive is in the PS4 but it's safe to assume its going to be a standard 2.5" drive.

If there is some weird height restriction again like the ps3 and 12mm height , the 840 pro is 7mm so I'm covered that way.
