PlayStation 4 Sasuke Update Has External HDD Support

The Sony PlayStation 4's previous update known as version 4.07 was rolled out last Dec. 8 of last year. Pretty quickly, new features are bundled in a new major system software update. Version 4.50 which is codenamed Sasuke, unfortunately does not have Sharingan capabilities. It does, however, have the next best thing.

In the system console update, PlayStation 4 will be providing external hard drive support for games and the ability to view 3D Blu-rays for PlayStation VR. According to the PlayStation blog post, Update 4.50 will give users more space on the console as it lets them plug a USB 3.0 hard drive. Users can just download and install games directly to the HDD. The console will allow up to 8 TB in size for the hard drive.

Additionally, the console can help users manage any saved content in the settings menu. The saved apps in the HDD can be located in the Home Screen's Content launcher, essentially making it easier to access apps that were recently used. The console users will have to take note that save files will still be kept in the PS4's HDD as only the games and apps will be stored in the external drive.

Other features that were mentioned was that it has also simplified the tabs of the Notifications app into a single list for users to check their notifications all at once. Users can also post text, screenshots and GIFs to the Activity Feed directly. Owners of the PlayStation VR will also be able to enjoy 3D Blu-ray movies in the update. This goes well with the February bundles being offered for the PSVR.

A glimpse of the 4.50 update will be available for to anyone who signed up for PlayStation beta program and was chosen take part. What is even better is that there will be more features in the update, according to Sony.
