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:
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.
