PS4 External Hard Drive (MyPassport)
« on: March 17, 2017, 06:10:45 pm »



I have ordered a hard drive for the PS4 which is a WD 1TB My Passport External Hard Drive which is due tomorrow and managed to get it for 20 which is a bargain as it's normally over 50

The plan is to move all my games on there and save loads of space, as it's annoying having to delete games to install new ones  :40:

Has anyone else added a External Hard drive to their PS4 Yet? or are you planning on doing so in the future?

I'm pretty sure you can't use an external hard drive mate, unless they've changed it via update. I ended up replacing my existing 500gb drive with a 2tb one.

Yeah they changed it with the update, I watched countless video tutorials on USB Hard drives and it was recommended to use the My Passport one. It's actually really easy to use :D

The best thing is that it's so easy to install and it only takes seconds to format :D
