Seagate Unveils Officially Licensed Playstation External Hard Drive

Seagate Unveils Officially Licensed PlayStation External Hard Drive

Sony’s PS4 console supports users attaching external hard drives to it where they can save some of their files onto, especially given that the storage in the PS4 is fixed and there doesn’t seem like there is an easy way to upgrade it short of buying a new console with a larger storage, which actually doesn’t make a lot of sense.

However if you’ve always found that most external drives tend to look kind of ugly and out of place with the PS4, Seagate’s got your back. The company has recently announced the Seagate Game Drive which is an officially licensed hard drive for the PS4. For the most part it is very much an external hard drive, save for the fact that it has been colored and given a PlayStation logo to help it better blend in with the console.

Japan, home of the "kawaii" cult of cute, has always had a soft spot for companion robots, in contrast to the more industrial or mechanical types used for assembly lines, surgeries and military missions. The Associated Press spent some time recently with three relatively affordable home robots from Japanese makers that target the elderly, kids and hard-working salarymen pressed for time. Unlike real children or pets, they have off switches and don't need constant attention, dog food or cat litter.

It wasn’t possible to use an external hard drive with the PlayStation 4 initially.

Seagate has now launched its first hard drive for the PlayStation 4. It will add 2TB of external storage to the console.
