You can then load up your hard drive and connect to the network to access the cloud, download games and more.
If you’re a hardcore gamer and you’ve already purchased a PlayStation 4, you may want to upgrade, as you may not be able to access all your games and content until you buy a new system.
As for the PS3 and PlayStation 4 systems that will come with an additional hard drive, Sony says that the “new, powerful hardware from Toshiba and Micron will improve the security and reliability of the data stored on the new drives.”
It will be the first time the hard drive will be available in the form of a standard unit and it will come in a plastic case that’s about 1.5 inches thick.
The new Toshiba SSDs are designed to last for more than 10 years and they also come with support for Toshiba’s SLC NAND flash memory.
Micron has also added support for SLC DRAM, which can store data up to 40 terabytes.
Both of these capacities are currently priced at $3,999.
The PS3 Slim is also on sale for $2,999, which is $100 cheaper than the PlayStation 4 Slim, and will be released on March 30th.
