    Hopefully they eventually do a comparison of the standard HDD (5400 RPM), a 10k RPM HDD (presuming it's not capped), a SSHD, and a SSD.

    Until I can see those types of results, I'm holding off on upgrading my drive, especially since I've had nothing but bad luck with SSD in my PC.

    Why did it not launch with an SSD ? I would imagine a SSD would defo give an overall advantage but they are not that cheap, they are about 250 for a 500GB and 459 for a 1TB all made by Samsung .

    I have a Samsung 250GB SSD and a 1TB sata on my PC and the SSD is the single best improvement for PC in years . All loading times are less than ten seconds, sometimes a couple seconds .

    Well, i think i'll stick with HDD, but by the time i buy a PS4 i think the SSD will be much cheaper.

    True, I think it sucks that you might want to upgrade to get the best out of it, to get on a level playing field it terms of memory its 250 for the 500GB put that to the 350 makes it a 600 pound console, the 1TB brings it up to 800 . The 500GB launch PS4 is far short of being enough when games are 50GB+ and the installs for the disk to work are not far behind .
    You could say you don't need one but I would like to bet that you do, 20 second load times straight at launch will only get worse and end up far too long . I would not have a problem if they shipped a version similar to the new Slim PS3 where you can add your own one, as long as it was much reduced in price .

    Hopefully we get some benchmarks by next week. I'm curious to see how the SSD performs.
