Nyko Announces PlayStation 4 Hard Drive Peripheral

Jack Gardner



While the general response to the PlayStation 4 has been one of enthusiasm and approval, one of the complaints that consistently comes from PS4 owners is that the 500 GB hard drive just doesn't cut it. Unfortunately, replacing the internal hard drive on the PS4 with a larger one can be an expensive proposition with limited options. Nyko's new peripheral, the Data Bank, will expand the PS4's compatibility with different hard drives and (hopefully) save consumers some money. 


The PlayStation 4 typically only accepts 2.5-inch hard drives. 2.5-inch hard drives tend to be $30-$40 more expensive than their 3.5-inch counterparts, which are more common. Nyko's Data Bank replaces the top cover of the PS4 and allows for more room for the larger drive. 


No price has yet been announced, so it remains to be seen if Nyko's device will end up saving your wallet all that much. The Data Bank i currently scheduled for a release sometime during the first half of 2015.
