Will users be able to replace PS4’s stock 500GB hard drive? What hard drive sizes are supported?

PS4 owners will be able to replace PS4’s standard hard drive. PS4’s hard drive is used to store downloaded game and video content, game save files, gameplay movies and images, and more.

 

What type of hard drive does PS4 use?

PS4 is equipped with a 5400 RPM SATA II hard drive. Users can choose to install a new hard drive so long as it complies with these standards, is no thicker than 9.5mm, and is larger than 160GB.

 

Will users be able to connect an external hard drive to expand storage on PS4?

No, this feature is not supported on PS4.

At the moment, yes. But as time passes, storage density increases, and the need arises I'm sure we'll see some larger hard drives that fit in the PS4 eventually.
