If you are considering purchasing a new Sony PlayStation 4 games console one officially launch later this week in the US on November 15th. You would be interested to know that the already small 500 GB hard drive which comes with your new next-generation PlayStation 4, will only provide around 400 GB of actual storage you will be able to use.
Sony does say that you can upgrade the 500 GB hard drive within the new PlayStation 4 games console. Using a hard drive of the same size but with a larger capacity or even offering faster performance via a solid state disk (SSD). But SSD drives over 500 GB in size will definitely set you back in a few hundred dollars or more.
A lucky user who received their PlayStation 43 days before the official launch has been tweeting information about the new games console revealing new information that was before not revealed by Sony.
Within the numerous tweets that have been fired off by this lucky PlayStation 4 owed, its been revealed that the new game Killzone: Shadow Fall takes up 39GB on the PlayStation 4’s hard drive, while Call of Duty: Ghosts takes up 32GB of storage providing a guide to how long and how many game you can expected to load on to your 400GB drive, maxing out at around 14.
Sony has restricted access to some of the storage with a portion of a hard drive inaccessible, and 92GB set aside for whats thought to be the PlayStation 4’s firmware.
To re-cap the Sony PlayStation 4 console will be equipped with 8-cores of AMD Jaguar processing power supported by 8GB of GDDR5 RAM together with a next generation AMD Radeon graphics card to process your games graphics.
