I have one of these in my PS4: http://tinyurl.com/qe9dfoh

Though not 2TB, it is an incredible price. And the SSD element really does speed up boot times of the console and most played games.

3.5" drives don't fit in the PS4! (maybe it was this one?)

I think the 2 best options are a 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive or a 2TB standard drive, depends if you prefer slightly quicker loading speed over more storage.

Not many options for 2TB drives, but the best option seems to be buying an external Seagate drive and removing the drive from the enclosure. Full details in this Eurogamer piece, drive is £69 on Amazon

Yep, well played there sir. It was in fact the second one. *note to self, must learn to read*

I got mine through flubit using Amazon because they had the lowest price, which flubit then beat by a further tenner. Spent £55 in the end I think.

I fitted the external drive as mentioned above by Benjo, it was a good deal.

Got the first message that my standard HDD was full up earlier. Looks like I'll have to order a 2TB one tomorrow or something.

http://www.nyko.com/products/product-de ... nk+for+PS4 - this was a pretty smart idea. Not sure how available it is, or how much, but being able to use a 3.5" could end up being pretty useful. Cheaper drives, higher capacity, faster read speeds. Speaks for itself I guess.
