While the internal hard-drive of Sony’s PlayStation 4 console can be easily replaced, there have been numerous calls over the years for the system to support external USB hard-drives and soon, Sony will finally be answering those calls.
In System Update 4.50 (codenamed “Sasuke”), the PlayStation 4 will receive support for USB 3.0 HDDs, with a maximum additional capacity of 8TB. Additionally, users will soon be able to set any in-game screenshot they capture as their system’s background, with the option to edit them in Photo Mode.
For users who own a PlayStation VR headset, this update will also allow you to watch 3D Blu-rays using the device’s stereoscopic 3D.
System Update 4.5 is currently being rolled out to beta members. A date for the general public has yet to be confirmed.
