Sorry, I'm not a giant fan of digging around in my console, possibly voiding the warranty in the process, in order to add more storage. I'd rather have external.

it has its own separate compartment

I've never installed a game to an external HDD, but it doesn't sound like a great idea. Wouldn't there be some speed issues?


not with USB 3.0

internal drive vs external HDD via USB3

it would most definitely affect gameplay

X1 and PS4 both use SATA 2.0 which has a transfer rate of 3Gbit/s. USB 3.0 has a data transfer rate of 5Gbit/s. USB 3.0 external drives will actually be faster than the internal drives.

PS4 comes with a SATA 2.0 drive, but you can upgrade it to a faster one.

Several factors affect the read speeds so it would be interesting to see how an external matches up with the internal in the Xbox One, but at the very least I suppose using external could provide benefits

Actually ignore this, I looked up the FAQ and apparently the speed cannot be upgraded...

Sucks

Yeah, PS4 faq says "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."

So no, you're stuck with 5400 RPM SATA II drives.


You dont have to use a 5400 rpm drive

System should of launched with 1TB HDD. Probably got a nice deal on old 500GB HDDs which is why they launched with them. 1-2 years the system will be coming with 2TB as a standard.
