    Well $#@!...my hypothesis was wrong! Nice to see it is easy to get into! Totally dig the PS engraved screw!

    The plastic cover was made in July 2013!

    I wonder if the ease of removing the cover will let us see fun "face plate" replacements. Also Side note as it was pointed out already that screw is bad ass.
    What's the point in having an Internet connection if you're not using it to look up weird, ****ed-up pictures of dirty sex you'll never have yourself?

    Just found out that it's ANY size. I'm assuming it's still SATA also.

    That would be pretty damn sexy, to have a black console with a colourful side strip dedicated to Knack, Killzone or Drive Club.

    The PS4 is going to be the best console ever!

    Hopefully the price of SSD's will come down in price in this new generation.
    Keep it simple!

    They have been steadily dropping each year. You can pick them up for less than $1/1 per GB now. Still alo more expensive than mechanical drives of the same capacity. 1TB SSD will cost around 450

    In 2005 I paid 200 for one of these, they are SATA 1 or 150MB/sec at the time SATA 2 was the go to standard but very few drives got close to even SATA 1 speeds, unlike today.

    Yeah I've noticed but 450 is alot of money for a 1TB SSD.

    It'll be good to know which speed is supported etc. Maybe we can have a list created.

    Rough PS4 faceplate idea:

    Imagine all the possibilities. Sony official ones and even aftermarket ones with websites that will print your own custom design. A perfect world =]

    Faceplates are ok. I wouldn't pay more than $15 NZD for one though. And it'd have to be really good.

    So does anyone know what size hard drive it'll fit? I was under the impression it was confirmed that only the smaller/standard hdd's would fit
