PS4 games Will Not Install on External Drives, Internal HD Only

Posted by at 10:25 am on September 3, 2013


SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida is well-known for using social media networks like Twitter to interact with everyday gamers and answer their questions, which fosters a multitude of devoted and loyal gamers across the world.

In one such Tweet, Yoshida reveals a surprising aspect regarding the PlayStation 4′s game installation functionality. Apparently gamers cannot install PS4 games onto external hard drives, and must instead utilize the console’s 500GB HDD instead.

This poses a somewhat troubling scenario for many gamers as hard disk space is occupied at a surprising pace, especially with next-gen titles which will no-doubt require a surprising sum of storage. The news comes shortly after Yoshida revealed that PS4 users can install full games onto the consol, once again in a recent Tweet:

500 gigs may sound like a lot, and it will most likely be sufficient for most PS4 users, however the option to make use of an external HDD is a convenient measure that is offered by Microsoft’s Xbox One console.
