I'm thinking the same thing. I have the original 500 gb model now. I was thinking about it since I need more space for games, but I could either upgrade the hard drive or buy an external drive for less money. I might still go for a Steam Controller though. I game on my PC a lot more these days so I would probably get more use out of that!
Guys I almost decided not to trade in my OG PS4, but it is out of warranty and my PS Plus expires next year. Couldn’t pass up on the $50 gift card and getting a new, quieter PS4 with a warranty. Ended up paying $80 for it after my trades. I also don’t have a PC for gaming. Only had 500 GB space. Felt like it was a no brainer.
