Rumored, of course. What say you?

No I don't like this at all. The whole point of console gaming is a single buy and that's it. Leave upgradable parts too PC gaming.

It didn't work with the Mega Drive (32x) nor the N64 (RAM extension), so it never will with consoles.

Even if I wanted I have nothing left to say.

Uhmm we're not talking about input devises here are we?

Then again, I can't recall Kinnect and Move being a huge success....


By the way that guy in the movie was kind of....

Well HDD are a bit different in that their not actually a upgrade but just an increase of capacity.

Not comparable to ie. RAM.

Won't ever happen -- Not in consoles. But if it did, because I'm so sophisticated and savvy, I'd have the highest end Ps4 on the market. People would be envious of me and my 80in tv and my awesome Ps4 capable of melting people's faces off with the sheer power of the start up screen.

Sophistication is buying ALL of your games digitally, but it's more than that. It's a way of life. it's having the best games and telling the world about them

All my hopes pours this into it being just a rumor. Even if it isn't, I'd still buy PS4 over PC as PC doesn't get God of War, Gran Turismo, etc.
