External hdd support? YES!

EDIT: Does it have to be 3.0? dammit, I don't have any of those.

YES! YES! YES!

Finally, I can keep DOOM installed.

(Yes, I'm well aware I've could've upgraded the hard drive internally, but this works better for me.)

EDIT: Just realized that this justifies all the 3D Blu-rays I have now.

This I like!:

"Post on PlayStation Network Activity Feeds

We’re adding the ability to post directly into the Activity Feed, which appears in a variety of places across the console, including What’s New. Under What’s New, you’ll see a new option to post things like text, screenshots, and gifs directly into your Activity Feed. You can also tag games or other users to make sure they don’t miss your post. It’s a great way to show off your greatest triumphs.
Tying into to this new feature, Live from PlayStation will show screenshots that users uploaded to PSN as a Public Activity, so you can show off your best gameplay moments not only to your friends, but to users around the globe."

And this I also like!:

"dim the Function Area, will help keep the system icons and texts on the home screen clearly visible even if the background image you selected is super bright."

External hdd support? YES!

EDIT: Does it have to be 3.0? dammit, I don't have any of those.
Of course. USB 2.0 will be way too slow to read game data off

FUCKING FINALLY.

my internal 2TB HDD is already 100gb away from being full.

This is compatible with HDDs up to 8TB in size. You can download and install applications directly to your extra storage, and the saved contents are easily manageable through the settings menu.

ha! was just about to break down and order a new HDD for my launch PS4. nice.

i have a 2TB usb3 external that is partitioned half Mac HFS+ file system and half Windows NTFS, that second partition should work right? (NTFS is technically the first partition)

Oh, wow, didn't expect that. If they offer an easy way to love data between internal and external that would be amazing. You can then utilize a smaller SSD for current games and have the external act as a library "archive".

I have a PS4 with 40o gigs (2TB drive) of free space. No big deal, legacy machine. But I have a PRO since launch and the fucking thing only had 500 gigs (2TB) free.

External is so welcomed. Now I can dump crap like Star Wars Battlefront, Doom and Uncharted 4 onto a drive and never think about them again.

Glad I waited. I was almost on the cusp of upgrading my HDD. Now I can do so easily, and Cheaper and have more space in general.

So I went through all the trouble of finally caving and putting a new hard drive in my PS4 last month (admittedly, it was surprisingly easy), for them to now have external support.

Always my damn luck. Still looks a lot neater with it inside, I suppose.

edit: Huh, 3D blu ray support in PSVR could actually be cool, I guess.

Aye, that would be the perfect compromise. 250gig 'current games' SSD, 4 TB 'game library' external HDD. Total cost ... < $150

No stability updates?
Some PS4s have been laggy recently.
The one time we need it the most...

PS blogs never list 100% of every single change. Only few of the major changes.

So when beta version finished and releases final version update out gonna see what other changes and additions have been made from small to big to miscellaneous
