So you have a Playstation 4 and you’re ready to start playing. Not so fast…before you can play, you have to download your first game. And that’s the moment you realise that many games will take up a decent chunk of your 500GB stock hard drive. Other World Computing has just announced an upgrade kit for PlayStation® 4 at CES 2014 that will allow users to add capacity and boost performance up to 40% faster vs. stock drive for reduced system load time.
What it does
The OWC DIY Upgrade Kit for PS4™ allows PS4 owners to double storage and boost the performance with an OWC drive. DIY bundles include everything needed to upgrade/replace the existing 2.5” drive and transfer gaming data to new drive. For added value, the original drive can be converted to an external drive, using the included enclosure, for new use for data transfer, back up or portable storage for your computer.
Why it’s cool
The OWC DIY Upgrade Kit for PS4 allows PS4 owners to gain storage and performance in one quick upgrade. With gaming downloads often as large as 50GB at a time, a factory hard drive fills up quickly. Doubling the storage of the PS4 means that gaming and media storage will no longer be a problem.

This is a user serviceable part according to Sony that will not void your PlayStation 4’s warranty.
