      I've decided to extend our charity campaign for The Life You Can Save organizations for the entirety of 2017 so feel free to contribute at any time!  Periodically through the year, I'll have game giveaways for those who have donated to the campaign as a "thank you" for supporting this worthy endeavor!

      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Can you install an SSD into the PS4?

19 posts in this topic

If the ps3 can I can't see why you can't on PS4. The important question is will the ps4 actually take advantage of an ssd drive.

To maintain longterm optimal performance the PS4 OS and SATA chipset will need to support TRIM command for SSDs. I haven't heard anything about this, but from a purely physical standpoint you should be able to plug an SSD in the PS4 and it will probably work. And to take full advantage of the read/write speeds a SATA 6 gbps port is needed, although an SSD bottlenecked by a SATA 3 gbps port is still a lot faster than a hard drive.

You gonna have a copy of PS4's operating system to take advantage of those speeds dogg?

No you say?

THEN WHATS THE POINT?

Well I'd assume games that are installed to the HD will read much faster and reduce in game loading substantially.

Fast load times in games downloaded to the drive of course.

By the sounds of it people wanted more than 500 gigs, why would you put a SSD in there?

Good thing they saved that 100 bucks and can sell their games.

Better performance.

I'll just keep the games downloaded to the HD that I am playing currently and re-install them at a later date if I need too. Also, transitioning to PC gaming over the past couple of months has really spoiled me on load times and Steam has made me fall in love with a digital collection.

PS3 can so I'd expect the PS4 to do the same.

just because it works doesn't mean the HDD controller will run it at SSD speeds. No one has mentioned it yet for the ps3. It appears that the XB1 will be using a Hybrid drive so it can get that SSD performance with flash cache

In 3-4 years from now, when these consoles are at their half-way point, SSD pricing will become a non-issue. 1-2 TBs for $200 or so, probably even less. So yeah, it'd be nice if Sony thought ahead and allowed us to take full advantage of SSD speeds. If not, then PS5. :(

I remember reading where someone put one in their PS3 and did some benches. Sped up load times a far amount in some games. I think they said GT5 benefited a lot.

Unfortunately hybrid drives haven't gotten to actual SSD levels of performance unless you're talking about super cheap off brand SSD's and even then, they're slower (I have hybrids in all my PC's). That being said, they're a much better solution than a standard mechanical drive. For what you pay you're pretty much getting 10K RPM perf for the most part thanks to the flash nand.

cant disagree with anything you said.
