We've covered both the Seagate Game Drive 2TB USB 3.0 HDD and Seagate Game Drive 4TB USB 3.0 HDD before, and today Sony announced Seagate's new external 2TB and 4TB game drives are now officially licensed PlayStation products.

According to Seagate's official page, the Seagate 2TB Game Drive (STGD2000100) MSRP is $109.99 while the 4TB Game Drive (STGD4000400) MSRP is $149.99. :giggle:

Here's more from Seagate Product Marketing Manager Eber Legarreta on the Seagate Game Drive for PS4, to quote:

The new Game Drive gives PS4 gamers an extra boost in storage, with amazingly simple portability that allows you to carry your games with you.

Our new Game Drive for PS4 has been rigorously tested and is optimized for PS4 systems. It features a small sleek design and branding that pairs well with your PS4. Most of all, the large increase in storage capacity lets you hang on to your favorite older titles and add-ons while still leaving room for new games.

With a hefty 2TB capacity, you can free up space on your PS4 system’s internal drive and consolidate approximately 50* games into a single location. (Do note, once content is stored on the drive, the content can only be accessed by the account that transferred the content.)

The Seagate Game Drive enhances the players’ gaming experience with easy installation, and direct connection via USB cable. Setup is easy, since the PS4 automatically recognizes your Game Drive and helps get it up and running in approximately three minutes.

Here are some of my favorite benefits of the Seagate Game Drive for PS4:
  • Instantly adds 2TB for approximately 50 more games*
  • Full-speed gaming, just like playing from the PS4 system’s internal drive
  • Optimized to work with every model of PS4 (requires system software version 4.50 or greater)
  • Easy to bring to a friend’s place to play your games on another PS4 system (do note, once content is stored on the drive, the content can only be accessed by the account that transferred the content)
  • Truly plug-and-play; doesn’t require additional cables
  • Doesn’t need to plug into the wall — USB powered
The new Game Drive for PS4 is available next week in North America for $89.99 USD (MSRP) / $119.99 CAD (MSRP) — look for it at your favorite retailers and online. Check out Seagate.com for more details.

*Based on an average storage requirement of 39GB for PS4 games published on or before June 2018.

I bet you dollars to doughnuts that if you crack it open you will find a standard seagate hdd found in every other seagate backup plus portable drive. I would say the only optimization is a sony logo on the cover.

The sad thing is people will buy it like they buy anything labeled "gaming" in the pc world

Back in 2014 I bought a normal Seagate 2Tb drive, cracked the case and put it in my PS4. Still runs like a dream. No way I'm paying extra just because it has a little Sony logo on it. Just go buy any Seagate drive and it will work all the same.

I recently grabbed a Seagate Backup Plus portable 5TB from Staples on sale for $110 with a $15 off over $75 coupon. I still had my stickers that came with my PS4 Pro RDR2 bundle and slapped one of them on the HDD. Suck it Sony.

The other one is formatted to EXFAT and has all my games running EXT from the PS4 using @stooged program... been like that since day one! works great and i have 475 games external. $ony "Buy our special blah blah ...."
