The PlayStation 4 gives you only 500GB of storage space by default, but many of top rated games today usually take up an average of 40GB of space. This means you can have about 11-12 games maximum installed before you need to do some cleaning to get more space.
This could be fine if you have a blazing-fast Internet connection that allows you to download games or their patches when you want to playing a game that you’ve previously deleted due to space limitations.
When you think about the storage upgrading, there are many questions you’ll need to consider, as you would when doing the same for your PC. Would you prefer Hard Disk Drive or Solid State Drive? Do you want a 1TB drive or larger? Are you looking at only a capacity upgrade, or do you want to improve load times as well?
The Seagate’s Game Drive for Playstation is a good choice if you looking for capacity upgrade and better game loading speed. Seagate Game Drive for PlayStation is a 1TB internal hybrid drive for PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. It could store up to 25+ PS4 games and allow you to enjoy noticeably faster system boot and game play performance. Simple installation and easy configuration get you up and playing fast.
If you’re not familiar with Seagate’s Game Drive, It is actually a 2.5-inch Solid State Hybrid Drive (SSHD). This is a 1TB SSHD, which is Seagate’s recipe of a 1TB HDD, with 8GB of it being a solid-state cache. The idea behind this SSHD is to have the low price per gigabyte and sheer storage space of conventional HDDs, but to also give users SSD-like performance. With this SSHD, we’ve gotten both capacity and speed upgrades covered.
For see it performance, we install the Game Drive and filled it with the games such as Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate. All games had their latest updates installed, and that they were running the same version on the stock drive, as well as the Seagate SSHD. Then, we ran these games and recorded the load times at specific intervals to see how the Game Drive for Playstation really delivers speed improvements.
Our tests result shown, some games see a little, but not quite significant improvement in load times, while some like MGS and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate saw a fair boost in load times. However, most game also getting better load times.
Finally, The Seagate Game Drive for PlayStation not only gives you double the storage capacity of the original PS4 drive, but also gives you better load times for games, in terms of sheer speed, as well as consistency.
