Sony Is About to Dramatically Improve the Playstation 4

It could solve one of gamers’ biggest gripes

A better version of the Playstation 4 may be on the way. A new FCC filing appears to reveal two new versions of Sony’s popular PS4. One of the new models would be the first to come with a 1-terabyte hard drive inside. That’s twice the size of the current drive.

With users increasingly opting to purchase software digitally, built-in drives can fill up quickly. A triple-AAA title can easily reach 30 gigabytes to 40 gigabytes.

Forum users have noticed that the new Playstations are different in several other ways, as well. They are slightly lighter and use less power than the most recent PS4 revisions. That is likely the result of a more efficient design. But the systems appear to lack support for 5 gigahertz WiFi, something gamers have been clamoring for.
