Does Rockstar have an exclusive deal with PS for all their old games on the new consoles (Red Dead Revolver, Max Payne and Bully on the PS4)? Any other PS2/OG Xbox games like these that have been released already, besides the GTA series and the Star Wars ones?


The Warriors and Manhunt come to mind for me.

I am looking to upgrade my PS4 hard drive to 2TB.  Is there any reason I should go with the barracuda rather than the older version.  Is there another hard drive that I should be looking at?

Do this one: Seagate Expansion 2TB Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 (STEA2000400) https://www.amazon.c...i_2dBnybP73M1TG

And look up video of how to put it into the PS4 and put the PS4 into the enclosure to create a 500gb external.

This external 2tb drive is the one I just received yesterday. You just need to open it and take the drive out to use in your PS4:

$70 is a great price, I think it's on sale at Amazon, but the sale price may not last long.

There's a Seagate 2 terabyte drive in an enclosure that most people recommend.  That's what I bought last christmas for our PS4 but my kid plays it so much that we just haven't made the time to upgrade the thing.

Any good BF deals on 3+ TB drives for a PS4 Pro?

Think I'll still go HDD over a SSD for the amount of storage space I can get for the price (and maybe switch to a SSD once 1TB prices come down more)...

There are no drives larger than 2TB that fit into a PS4 unless you want to spend ~$1400 on a 4TB SSD.

The best internal drive for the PS4 now is probably this Firecuda SSHD, but it just came out so it's a bit pricey at $120 (beware there's also a 3.5" version of this drive that you do not want).  The regular Barracuda (no flash) is running around $100, or you can save a few more dollars by removing an external drive from the enclosure, but this does void the warranty on the drive.

This is what I have and it has made the whole going digital a  better experience. The whole install time took around 3 or 4hrs counting  restore time. It was also easy to open the case with a guitar pick, and the 500GB drive is now my Xbone's external so win win.

My Black Friday purchases are done other than whatever is revealed for the flash sales this week. I like that retailers had a lot of deals early so I can have a relaxing holiday.

Get this one:

Drive is $69 on Amazon.  Just get it price matched at BBY, rip it out of its sealed enclosure, then take the PS4 HD and put it in a new enclosure.

Yeah I read about that one last week or two. $120 isn't that much it'll be much worth it then the old hdd. I have 500gb I won't be able to play the game I buy, definitely since I got more games I paid for through this years flash sales that I can't download yet until I'm done with and delete. Either buy a pro for a 1tb or stay on the original a little long and get the firecuda.
Edit: There's another new one burracuda 2tb but it's a hdd.

Typically the flash sale in November is pretty mediocre.

 

Just trying to keep expectations in check.  Maybe this will be the year we get a great November flash sale... but I lean towards historical data even though this year already we are having a much better regular weekly sale than we typically do for thanksgiving week.

I really am a cheap bastard gamer so I think I will only be getting Mad Max.  Darksiders 2 looked enticing until I read about the frame rate and it not being much of an upgrade (I never played the previous gen so I know nothing about the game).

Is the stuff in the Apex edition of Far Cry Primal worth the extra $4.50?  It sounds dubious.

Would have been nice if they discounted Witcher 3 season pass.  The DLC is almost the same price as the COMPLETE version.

This is the exact same one I bought. I'm halfway through the installation/upgrade, will report back tomorrow with the results. The drive worked perfectly when tested on my laptop before being shucked, and was very quiet.

Flash sales usually don't start till Friday. Probably around 8:30 or 9:00am would be my guess. pacific time.


I think in the past for the Thanksgiving/Black Friday flash sale they have actually started on Thursday.
