Sony has given us a glimpse at some of the things that will be included in the PS4 4.50 System Software Beta, and the one thing that certainly caught our attention is the support for external HDD! All that you’ll need to do is plug in a USB 3.0 HDD, and you’re set.
As per Sony’s official info:
This is compatible with HDDs up to 8TB in size. You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu.
Also, all the applications saved in the external HDD will appear in the Content Launcher of the Home Screen so it’s easy to keep track of what apps you launched recently.
On top of this, those in the Beta will be able to set custom wallpapers, try the new and updated quick menu, watch 3D Blu-Rays in their PS VR units, and more!
