If it's anything like Xbox One S, games will load faster from external drives. Can't wait for some tests to see how the PS4 Pro compares.
In addition to PS4 Pro internal SATA 3, USB ports have also been updated from OG PS4, USB 3.0 to USB 3.1. (also for PS4 Slim)

Don't know what difference that is. Also faster CPU and all I want tests asap

Wooo, finally external HD support. Good timing too, since I'm about to fill up my 2TB drive and was debating whether to suck it up and just delete some stuff. Now I won't need to

The post mentions you can store applications externally but I wonder if you'll have more granular control over what goes where, like you'll be able to set an external drive to hold all your captures or something.

PS4 Pro's and Slim's USB ports are USB 3.1 gen 1. So basically they're USB 3.0 but call themselves USB 3.1.

USB 3.0 - 5Gbps.
USB 3.1 gen 1 - 5Gbps
USB 3.1 gen 2 - 10Gbps.

Nothing there I will actually use unfortunately.

I have a 2TB HDD and that will last me the entire generation easily.

I still have not any use for folders either.

PSVR 3D is the biggest one for me, no longer got a 3D TV (Bought KS8000) and have loads of 3D Blu rays that I could not use!!

Same here.

If it wasnt for my family I would just roll like this. Well this just sold me definitely on getting PSVR. Thanks, lol.
