The PlayStation 4 has always come with a 500GB hard disk drive ever since the launch and the console’s $399 price point has remained constant. It was only recently that Sony announced that it’s shipping units with 1TB HDDs but these units aren’t widely available right now. Well, if you want more storage GameStop has you covered, it’s selling “Supercharged” units of the PlayStation 4 from its “premium refurbished” stock with 2 terabyte hard disk drives. That should give you plenty of storage.
GameStop is selling these premium refurbished units with 2TB storage online for $479.99 but if you do the math, it is actually much cheaper to expand the storage yourself.
The retailer sells premium refurbished units with 500GB HDDs for $359.99 this means that it’s asking $120 extra for the 2TB units. PlayStation 4 uses a standard 2.5 inch hard disk drive and a 2TB one can easily be purchased for around $100. GameStop isn’t even revealing the model or manufacturer of the 2TB HDDs found in these units. Seems like you could do better yourself.
Swapping the hard drive on a PlayStation 4 is pretty easy after all. Of course if you don’t feel up to it, maybe this is a good option for you. What do you think?
