Installing a new Hard Drive in a PS4

This is another one mostly for my own use. It seems even simpler than the one I did for my PS3! Which is nice... although frankly the PS3 one was very straightforward as well.


The real trick is taking this one and using it to swap out the old 250GB I have in my PS3 FAT. Now that is a plan and a half!

Here's How To Install a Hard Drive in a PS4

The PlayStation 4 comes with a 500GB hard drive, and let's be real—that's not gonna be enough space for some of you. The good news is that you can upgrade it.


Check out this video by gamespot, which walks you through what you need to do to swap in a new hard drive into your PS4. Thankfully, it's nothing too complicated. And assuming you're okay with the space the original hard drive affords you, installing a different hard drive might still be of interest: a SSD can allow you to load games a little faster. So, it's definitely worth considering.
