How to upgrade the PS4 hard-drive (picture guide)

November 10, 2013 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

The Playstation 4 comes with a 500GB hard-drive as standard but with some games clocking in at around 50GB each, it won’t take very long to fill that up – particularly if you are going “all digital” this generation and also plan on storing some media on the console (although note that you won’t be able to play much out of the box).

Luckily the PS4 HDD is easily upgradable. You just need to make sure that the new hard-drive you purchase is a 5400 RPM SATA II drive that is no thicker than 9.5mm (and also bigger than 160GB – although we don’t imagine many people will be wanting to downgrade!).

So what’s the procedure exactly? Well thanks to our friends at PCGames.de we’ve got the ultra high resolution images below which should guide you through the process. It looks very easy and the only comment we have is in respect of the back panel itself – there’s nothing tricky in getting it off apparently, just give it a gentle pull and it should pop off. Have fun upgrading!

Close-up images of the Xbox One and PS4

The Tokyo Game Show is in full swing and both Microsoft and Sony have their respective booths open to the public. Japanese gaming website 4Gamer took the opportunity to get up close and personal with each of the Xbox One and the Playstation 4, grabbing the shots embedded below.

It’s nice to be able to see all the different ports and details in such fine detail (including the “Prototype – Not for Sale” label on each device). Having regard to looks only, which console catches your eye the most?

PS4 manufacturing pics leak from China

September 8, 2013 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

Mass manufacturing pictures of the Playstation 4 (or more accurately, PS4 retail boxes) have been leaked via a Chinese bulletin board system (BBS) with the leaker of the pics also saying that his or her factory is shipping out over one million consoles alone and that they are not the only ones producing PS4s.

Pictures of the some Playstation 4 hardware would have been nice but I suppose you can’t ask for everything. Maybe that will be the next leak! The PS4 will be launched in the Unites States on November 15 and in Europe on November 29.

New PS4 system and UI images

Sony has just released some new images showing off the Playstation 4 system as well as the user interface.

As you can see, the PS4 UI features much better multitasking support that its predecessor, the Playstation 3, and there will also be a new mobile app that lets you view game details, check out your profile and those of your friends, view Trophies and of course message people (Android app pics shown).

One thing we noticed in the “PS4 package” image is the tablet, specifically the inclusion of the word “Start” below the Knack game image. Does this mean gameplay can be streamed to tablets (and presumably controlled with the DualShock 4)?

Otherwise it’s nice to see more of the direction Sony are taking with the PS4 UI… looks good to us!
