PS4 External HDD Support Will Finally Arrive Via System Update 4.50

The PlayStation 4 is finally getting external hard drive support in the next system update.
System Update 4.50, codenamed Sasuke, will finally let owners plug in a USB 3.0 external hard drive to expand the console’s storage. External HDDs up to 8TB in size are supported, and transferring software or downloadable content can be managed via the settings menu. As with the internal HDD, any applications stored on an external hard drive will still show up on the main home screen.
Also coming in the new update is the ability to use screenshots as PS4 themes, though the UI icons will remain unchanged, a smaller quick menu which takes up less of the screen, a simplified notifications list , and the option to post directly into the Activity Feed. For PSVR owners, 4.50 lets users watch 3D movies in stereoscopic 3D directly on the PSVR headset.
What do you think of these changes? Are you happy to have mores storage for all the free games Sony gives out each month? Let us know in the comments

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
