Anybody who’s familiar with digital gaming (and that means anyone with a Steam account) is familiar with the irritating process of deleting one game to make room for another. This is becoming more and more of a problem as games get bigger, but it’s a problem that Nyko hopes to help you solve.

Out of the box, the PlayStation 4 accepts 2.5″ hard drives, while most hard drives are of the 3.5″ variety. Nyko’s new Data Bank for the PlayStation 4 allows you to upgrade your PS4 memory capacity with a 3.5″ hard drive, giving you access to a wide range of cheaper, faster, and larger storage options.

The PlayStation 4 comes with 500GB of memory, but that’s a lot easier to fill up than you might expect, especially when you consider the monthly free games you get with PS Plus.  Nyko’s newest accessory can be found now at select retailers for $39.99. If you’re someone who downloads a lot of software, it’s well worth the price.

Modular PS4 Accessory Replaces 2.5” Hard Drive with 3.5” Hard Drive Dock

LOS ANGELES – June 11, 2015 – Nyko Technologies today announced the release of the highly-anticipated Data Bank for PlayStation 4, a hard drive dock that enables users to upgrade their console memory capacity from the PS4’s standard 2.5” hard drive to cheaper, higher-capacity 3.5” hard drives. The Data Bank is available now at select retailers for $39.99.

“With the Data Bank, we’re offering a solution that expands the console’s functionality and provides gamers with the convenience of extra storage space,” said Nyko director of marketing, Chris Arbogast. “With downloadable and hard copies of games taking up tens of gigs of storage against the stock 500GB hard drive, we’re facing the tough decision of choosing which game save to delete in favor of playing a new game. Nyko wants to make sure that never has to happen again.”

As the PlayStation 4 does not presently support game installs or save data on external hard drives, the Data Bank enables users to expand their storage beyond the limits of 2.5” drives currently compatible with the console. This ultimately lets users leverage the larger storage, faster running speeds, and lower prices of 3.5” drives.

The Data Bank for PS4 replaces the top of the console and its existing hard drive with a simple single-screw installation, and seamlessly matches the minimalist design of the PlayStation 4. A built-in LED strip illuminates whenever the console is accessing its memory.
