After spending some time with my stock/launch day PlayStation 4, I knew there would come a time when it would eventually run out of space. Being a PlayStation Plus subscriber since inception, I’ve already felt the pains of having to manage the content that was installed on my PlayStation 3 console. I found myself having to pick & choose which games to download and which ones to keep or remove just so I could have the latest & greatest offering from Sony week after week. That grew old very quickly, so I decided to upgrade the hard drive in the PS3 several months back. After having done this, not only was I able to download ALL my PS+ games and have everything from my Plus membership installed, I was no longer wasting my time managing content; it was a win-win situation all around. Besides the cost for the actual hard drive was extremely manageable, here’s a link to the one I used for my PS3 upgrade.
Having learned from this experience, I didn’t want to wait as long to do the same upgrade with the PS4. Re-downloading content & performing backups/restores isn’t any way for a gamer to want to spend his/her time. Because I had minimal content already, I knew doing the upgrade sooner rather than later would benefit me in the long run.
