PS4 Update to Come With External Storage
We have great news for PS4 players. Sony has confirmed that the upcoming patch will finally give users the ability to expand their storage space. It looks like Sony has been paying close attention to its customer feedback since PS4 fans have been asking for this feature for a long time. Users will be able to expand their storage space by plugging in a USB 3.0 HDD.
The upcoming update will bring PS4 software’s build number to 4.50 and it has been dubbed as the “Sasuke” update. Sony confirmed that PS4 will support external hard drives up to 8TB. The best thing about plugging in an external hard drive is that users can select to automatically store all apps and downloaded content on it.
All the data stored on the hard drive will appear in the Content Launcher which can be found on PS4’s Home Screen. This feature will make it easier for users to keep track of all the active apps. Additionally, files can be managed through the use of normal settings menu.
Regarding Sony’s 4.5 patch, it will also bring a bunch of new wallpapers. Users will be able to pick in-game screenshots as their new home screen wallpaper. Even better, the new update will provide users with the ability to edit and modify their screenshots. This can be achieved through the use of ShareFactory’s Photo Mode.
Additionally, the user interface will receive some changes as well. First off, the Quick Menu will be more enhanced. For example, the new Quick Menu will give users faster access to specific party features without being needed to open a second Party app. Worth mentioning is that Quick Menu’s location has been altered and that it will occupy less space.
The biggest user interface change will be made to the notifications panel. Tabs are going to appear as a simplified list, unlike previously when they were displayed on the left side of the screen. Anxious PS4 users can get their hands on these new features right now if they register in Sony’s beta program. The official build for patch 4.5 will be rolled out during the upcoming weeks.
