Nyko introduces Data Bank for all your PS4 HDD needs

Video game peripheral maker Nyko has revealed the Data Bank, a new dock that attaches to your PS4 and lets you expand the console's storage using the, often cheaper, 3.5" hard-drives.

"The solution eliminates the need for an external hard-drive, which currently cannot support game installs or save data," Nyko said at CES this week.

"This also allows for larger storage, faster running speeds and less expensive prices found with 3.5" hard-drives.

"The design of the replacement dock lid seamlessly matches the minimalist design of the PS4. Once a 3.5" drive is slid into the Data Bank, a built-in LED strip illuminates while the console is accessing its memory."

This could mean the potential for huge amounts of storage. It'd also make it much simpler to replace your HDD in the future if you had to.

Does this plug in via the usb slot and use your old and expanded hd or do you need to remove the hd cover?

@David - looks liek you take off the HD cover and this is a replacement cover that slides into the 2.5 inch HD port - so its essentially a 3.5" HD to 2.5" Adapter. Doubt Sony will help if anything gets corrupted or fails to work tho

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
