How to Easily Upgrade your PS4 Hard Drive

How many of you own a PS4 that’s full to the brim with content? Do you have to chop and change what you store on your hard drive in order to install new games, acquire updates or take use of the PS4 share features? Well maybe it’s about time you upgraded that petty 500GB hard drive.

When I first bought a PS4 I thought 500GB was more than enough, but taking into account that most games are now approaching the 60GB mark; such as The Witcher 3, Batman: Arkham Knight, Dragon Age Inquisition and many more – That 500GB sure fills up fast! This was the case for me, so when I saw that Sony were putting a 1TB PS4 on the market I quickly started to weigh up if it was worth picking one up, that was until I started doing a little research.

At first I thought the procedure of exchanging a HDD from the PS4 would be a mammoth task that required a lot of technical know how, I also worried that doing so would void my warranty completely. It turns out I was completely wrong on both points, it couldn’t have been easier and Sony actually encourages its users to upgrade the HDD at their own leisure and the best thing is, it won’t void your warranty!

In this video I give very easy, in depth, step by step instructions on how to go from 500GB to 2TB (2000GB). It shows exactly what you’ll need in order to complete the task, a look at what HDD you should go for as well as a thorough explanation on how to do it. So if you’re thinking about doing it or you’re sick of trying to squeeze everything onto what now seems like a measly stock hard drive, there’s no better time to do so. Games are only going to get bigger and you’re going to need as much space as you can get!

This is also my first YouTube video on the WhatRhinoSaid channel, so I’d highly appreciate it if you could give it a thumbs up, or even better, subscribe! – I plan to be adding a lot more content to YouTube in the coming weeks; such as Let’s Plays, Gaming Opinions, Video Game related content and other Geek Culture videos that may feature unboxing videos and merchandise reviews. Thanks for watching and I hope this helped you to upgrade your PS4 hard drive.
