PS4 ssd Compatibility

4 Replies 2,146 Views Created 23-06-2013

Hi, I have pre-ordered 2 PS4's and the first thing I would like to do is place an ssd into them straight away.

Is there any recommendation on which type of ssd for me to purchase that would be compatible with the PS4

 

Thank you

They'll accept SSD's :smileyhappy: and will work much faster with them too!

You got a source for that? I know the HDD is upgradeable so you're almost certainly right, I've just not seen it confirmed.

It'll definitly accept SSD's - SATA is an idystry standard, nothing special needed there. Same goes for PS3. Will it run faster with one? Maybe, aybe not. I think probably not so much, but who knows?

If you really want to upgrade then look at SSD Hybrid drives, much better value for money.

I think I'm going to wait until some real world tests are done on performance increase with an SSD versus SSHD before deciding what to go for.
