Nope, not using it. I already have to much clutter with 1Tb storage, too much scrolling to find stuff. If you can't find anything to delete when the 1Tb drive is full, finish something first! Less installed, faster booting, less scroll time! (What's up with that rebuilding database every time you turn on the ps4?)

Not yet, but I will. Was thinking about a 4TB one, but I might for for 2TB, as 400GB ('cause its not really 500) is still doing its job.

Is it not possible to organize stuff on the PS4?



I don't, but primarily because PS4 is not my primary console. I mostly just use it for some exclusives or notable content I get on PS+.

Sure, you can make folders, or simply delete old stuff. It's faster for me to pull the game I want of my shelf than find it in the library or whatever folder I put it into! Organizing physical cases is so much faster and easier to keep track of, at least for me.

I've not had to use an external hard drive myself yet, although if I ever fill my internal hard drive then I'll definitely be buying one. My girlfriend has an external plugged into hers since she buys more games digitally than me, and says it's a godsend considering how quick hard drives fill up with games these days.



Nope waste of time.Once I finish a game I delete it.

Never used buddy. Nice to see you´re still using your PSVR gear.

Went through a little phase where it wasn't being used. I even forgot how to connect it! I'm back in love with it now, though.

And in a bit of genius design, the ridges in the PS4 actually hides the cable. Out of sight, out of mind.

Very cool. Tried the US Air Force free game? It is quite a cool experience.



My grammar errors are justified by the fact that I am a brazilian living in Brazil. I am also very stupid.

I would if I had any spare money to buy an external HDD. I am in serious need for space on my PS4.



Yeah, I kinda have to use the external otherwise I would just spend half the time installing. Got one PS4 with a Nyko Data bank with a 3tb hard drive and a 1tb hard drive and the second PS4 has a 1tb internal and a 4tb external.

I've got about 500 games installed.
