While the PlayStation 4 Pro won’t feature a built-in solid state drive, users will be able to replace the console’s internal HDD with a new drive of their choosing.
“Yes, it is user replaceable,” PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny told IGN when asked if PS4 owners will be able to upgrade the console’s internal hard drive.
Cerny went on to note that PlayStation 4 Pro has “the same setup” as the standard PS4, confirming that while the company has no current plans to release a version of the console with a built-in solid state drive, “you are free to put an SSD in there,” if you so choose.
PlayStation 4 Pro will be available starting November 10. For more on Sony’s mid-generation console upgrade, which supports both 4K and HDR, read up on what Cerny told us about PS4 Pro’s modest RAM boost.
