The PS4, like the PS3, will not support external hard rives, but new reports indicate that the hard drive will easily be upgradeable.
Using a Samsung Solid State Drive, a gamer can remove the Sony hard drive and place the the new one into the console without a lot of hassle. The models available that will work for the Sony consoles are 840 ProSeries and 840 EVO Series. The PS4 has a 160GB on its own, so the Pro Series is the way to go because it holds up to 1 terabyte as well as smaller quantities, 250GB and 500GB.
Sony recently released a new promotional trailer for the PlayStation 4 that shows off the console's specs and features in a simple video.
