    5.0 out of 5 stars Playstation 4 & 5 Compatable!
    By M.Gould on 16 January 2019
    UPDATE:

    Still using this drive and has been reliable and a great buy from Amazon. Recently after receiving a VIP code for a PlayStation 5 I sold my PlayStation 4 and now on the latest gen. I hooked everything up the same but this time you want to plug the Toshiba hard drive to the back of the PlayStation 5 as it has x2 USB 3.0 ports. I’ve copied some games to it and it’s still been fine and have been running PlayStation 4 games on it such as Wolfenstein Alt Collection, Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 & 2, Serious Sam etc and has worked flawlessly.

    This drive will also store your PlayStation 5 games on it but won’t be able to run them as it’s not a SSD so not compatible for that but for storage and being able to run those PlayStation 4 Disc and Digital games it’s still a top gem.

    At the end of the day it’s an external hard drive and like any other 3.0 with a usb they will work for Playstation or Xbox. If they have their own format tool which they do you won’t have any problems. The first thing that comes up once you’ve connected it and powered on the console a message saying “Not Compatable”. Well it actually is it’s just that it’s not formatted and more like it’s been pre formatted to NTFS which is what windows use. Once you have formatted it, it takes literally seconds that’s it.

    Once you go to your system settings scroll down to Devices, USB Storage Devices, External USB 3.0 Toshiba. There it will ask you to format to an extended storage.

    Please note, once you have done this the preferred drive will be the external one, I’d suggest to use the internal hard drive for main storage as it will be more cooled from the fan inside the console.

    If you have say The Last Of Us which is about 50GB move that over to the external drive as there isn’t anymore updates for that game now. While on the subject keep games like Red Dead Redemption 2 on the main drive I only say as with new games your going to get a lot of updates like still Grand Theft Auto 5 and running the external drive constantly with the updates ploughing at it every day or so wouldn’t be good for it.

    I haven’t tried any of the games running off it yet but from what I read online they run faster apparently.

    I would recommend a 4TB hard drive as after the format with the systems own volume putting its own data on your left with about 3.5TB
