Sony showed off a preview of the next software update for the Play Station 4 today, which adds a long-awaited feature to the console: external hard drive support.
While Xbox One owners have been able to do this for ages, the only way for owners to expand storage for a PS4 has been to replace the internal drive.
Also getting added in the update are a few more minute features, including custom wallpapers, more simplified notifications, and support to view 3D Blu-rays in virtual reality using a Play Station VR.The PS4 has supported external hard drives for a while, but Sony limited it to system upgrades and media like videos and music. However, with version 4.50, you can download and install games directly to USB 3.0 hard drives up to 8TB in size.That's really handy for those of you who have a digital library but only own the base 500GB console.The Boost Mode feature aims to improve the quality and performance of games that have not been patched to support PS4 Pro."This can provide a noticeable frame rate boost to some games with variable frame rates, and can provide frame rate stability for games that are programmed to run at 30 Hz or 60 Hz," Sony explained at the time.
