That's... not a bad plan, but then I'd probably be looking at a USB hub as well, and this is quickly becoming a mess. I'll consider it, but would still like to hear from anyone who's upgraded the internal HDD.

I upgraded the stock drive to a 1tb one a couple of years ago. I followed this guide.

Thanks for that. :up: The process looks pretty straight-forward.

Reading around it sounds like there's not much if any advantage in getting a hybrid SSHD, so I'm looking at this 2TB external for $109, the plan being to pop it open and swap the drives. Still shopping around as it seems unbelievable that Officeworks would provide the cheapest option... but I guess there's a first time for everything.

I had a look into the USB hub situation on PS4 and frankly it looks like a clusterfuck best avoided.

It depends on which region the code is and what region your account is, I think. I know dlc codes for ntsc games don't work on Pal games.

If you buy a game overseas that save file won't be compatible with the same game from a different region.

I had MGS:GZ from overseas, then decided to buy digital from Aus psn and had to start from the beginning.

I was under the impression that digital games saves weren't compatible with physical game saves even when from the same country. I gave my physical copy of Motorstorm Apocalypse away when I competed it and then a while later it was on PS+, the PS+ version didn't recognise my game save. This was the case with nearly all games last gen.

PS4 went back into rest mode again automatically and from my knowledge there's no fix. I'll be picking up a new slim PS4 tomorrow by the looks of it. Not happy about doing this ( spending all that money) but I really have no choice.


Picked this up.

https://ebgames.com.au/ps4-801267-New-Look-PlayStation-4-1TB-Black-Console--2-Games--Extra-Controller-PlayStation-4

New-Look PlayStation 4 1TB Black Console + 2 Games + Extra Controller for $439.

I'll be selling the new controller and two games.

Transferring my data to new PS4. 585.5GB. Only 16 hours left..


Edit: have them consoles connected together. Now says 4hrs.

Finally got around to installing a 2TB HDD in my stock PS4. Relatively painless procedure*, just waiting for the restore to complete. :)

* Stabbed myself with a screwdriver a little bit
