The Xbox One has some features that the PlayStation 4 has been seriously lacking since launch day, among which is the ability to use an external hard drive to expand your memory. However, Sony is looking to fix this issue soon with a new software update, supporting hard drives up to 8 TB in size. This feature will release alongside version 4.50, codenamed “Sasuke.”

In addition to external HDD support, Sony will be adding the ability to use your own in-game screenshots as the picture of your home menu. You can edit these images in the Sharefactory app to customize your favorite picture to your liking. The quick menu is also going to take up less of the screen and will allow you to customize party chats without closing or suspending your game software. The new update will let PlayStation VR users watch 3D Blu-Rays in stereoscopic 3D as well.

An additional “boost mode” will also be added to PlayStation 4 Pro systems. This will allow games that were released before the upgraded console came out to push higher frame rates and have an overall better performance. So, if you are a PlayStation 4 Pro owner, you’ll have a lot to look forward to with the upcoming 4.50 update.

What do you guys think about this? Are you glad these features are making their way to PlayStation? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Our Verdict

Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
