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 GameStop, Amazon, and other 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.
