    I dont think 500gb will be nearly enough for ps4, so i want to get the largest possible size. Does anyone know what the ps4 supports?

    Sony hasn't confirmed a maximum HDD capacity. Perhaps it will say in the manual. I do know that the PS4 supports 12.5mm drives now (PS3 was only 9.5mm), so you have more options.

    I honestly don't know a ton about HDDs. That one appears to be 15mm thick though, so it may not fit in the PS4's bracket properly.


    That one looks like it's 15mm, too.

    The largest I can find in 12.5mm or less is 1TB. I did a bit of reading, and it seems that the larger capacity drives require more platters, so they require more room. Like I said, HDDs aren't really my area of expertise, so I'm sure someone will come along and correct me. ;)
