Product Experience Review – Upgrading the PS4’s Hard Drive

ps4 overview

This is a bit of a lessons learned. I’ll be honest and open and also say that this post will express a bit of dissatisfaction with a few things, too. At the end of the day, I have successfully upgraded my PS4’s hard drive to a 1TB Samsung Spinpoint SATA 5400 RPM drive, and I’m happy. It is just that the road getting there could use a couple of roadcrews to patch up some potholes.

Now it is likely that the most dedicated PlayStation fans have already hit these speedbumps and may think they are small cruft. And overall they are. But it’s worth a warning to those who have not upgraded yet. Some of this will express some areas where Sony could improve; but it’s not like I am saying I am leaving the PlayStation and never coming back and telling people not to buy one. It’s just a “Watch Out!” kind of thing.

PlayStation VR is not a bad name, but my question is “how much,” and will the resolution really be less than 1080p?

Why? They own the Japanese market?

Wonder if we'll see a $50 price cut here for the holidays?

Do You Do Early Access?

Steam-EarlyAccess-Fi

Steam-EarlyAccess

Things are pretty crazy. I switched jobs last fall. And now my boss is leaving. And I'm moving. With all of that, and I suspect life is similar for most of us Casual Adult Gamers, it is always hard to find time to game. I have often wondered how in the world any adult gamer would find time to not only game, but also participate in something like Steam's Early Access. Much less find that time so worthwhile that it is worth some of the prices for Steam's Early Access games. It is a strange notion, and I wanted explore it a bit with the CAG readership. Am I the only one lukewarm on this concept, or have others found it a unique and rewarding experience?
