    That poor PS4

    Also, note the height of the HDD tray. I wonder if it will allow for 3.5" drives after all

    Haven't seen any way to take out the hard drive in the PS4 other than in this video. Do you have to disassemble the system to swap out the hard drive?

    EDIT: Okay, I'm blind. I couldn't see what he was doing when I first looked at it.

    Not at all. The hard drive is housed underneath the glossy exterior panel on top of the device and can be removed via torx screwdriver.

    Thanks. According to this that I found, it has Phillips screws though:
    Sony increases PS4 hard drive size to 12.5mm for 1.5 TB capacity - SlashGear
    PS4 confirmed to ship with easily replaceable 2.5-inch hard drive | ExtremeTech

    I looked at the link that IGN had, but I don't speak German, and it didn't say anything when the text was translated on what screw it was.

    Most screws will be Phillips, and perhaps a few torx (T6 or T8)..

    Thanks, Helyx. I was wondering what the screws would be, just figured they'd be Phillips, but then I've been seeing more and more torx screws. Only 7 more days! On a side note, this wait has reminded me of the episode of South Park where Cartman froze himself waiting for the release of the Wii.

    That was sexy. I think they could have had a viral hit if they had Yasuhiro Ootori strip as well, while he was stripping the PS4. Would just be silly if it was in the video, and they never addressed it at all.

    Would have preferred if he went into greater detail about the HDD in terms of compatibility, RPMs, SSD, limitations, etc, since a lot of people will be looking to upgrade from a 500GB hard drive.
