Console storage has never been great, but with games sometimes taking up more than 80GB a pop, it hasn't been hard for people to fill up the storage that came with their device.

Sony did make it easy to upgrade the built-in storage, but supporting external HDDs both ups the total amount of data people can store and lets those uncomfortable with swapping HDDs get in on the fun.

Certainly with our user base, it’s the second biggest use case for people’s time on the system so we place more emphasis on that area.

In their PS4 Pro FAQ, Sony said, “No, PS4 Pro’s internal Blu-ray drive does not support the new Ultra 4K Blu-ray Disc format.

Supporting 3D Blu-rays is Sony's latest attempt to expand the PSVR's content offerings.

According to Sony Interactive Entertainment President Andrew House, who spoke with The Guardian yesterday, it isn’t possible to add support for UHD discs in a post-launch firmware update.

He then said they’re more focused on streaming with 4K, as it’s what consumers are leaning towards: Our feeling is that while physical media continues to be a big part of the games business, we see a trend on video towards streaming.

Update 4.50 is exactly what it sounds like: an update to the Play Station 4 system console.

The last update, which released 8 December, is called 4.07.

What’s even more interesting is that there’s belief that Sony could in the future provide an update to PS4 Pro to support the UHD format, likely after sales of its souped-up Blu-ray player have subsided.“So it seems very possible that, once Sony Consumer Electronics’ set-top Ultra HD Blu-ray player finally arrives in stores and sells through for a while, you could see Sony Interactive Entertainment surprise people with a firmware update that adds full 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc compatibility to the Play Station 4 Pro.”The PS4 Pro launch is set for November 10, 2016.
