    I would just say "yes", and be done; however - https://support.us.playstation.com/a...pgrade-ps4-hdd

    Go over that page.

    Make sure you have the newest firmware on a thumb stick drive when you swap the drive.if u don't have the fw it won't work.

    I'd avoid it. Some of us are technically inclined and some of them are technically stupid but don't know how to admit they open their mouth only after others have done so and want to sound smart....

    I haven't really seen any hacking firmware discussions, it's up to admin/mod to decide.
    We mostly argue endlessly about why the XBO is or isn't catching up to the PS4 in the minds of people where transistors don't matter and ESRAM comes from the loins of magical 'worlds smartest programmer' speed fairies which will make life all better for some who just can't enjoy what they have and stop trying to prove points nobody want's to hear again.

    Rememeber you will need the PS3 Slim HDD dock unless they now come with one I installed a old 60gb hdd in a 12gb slim last month as a temp till the owner got a larger 500GB and I found out it needed a dock in the end I used a small piece of cardboard to fold at the end to balance it out for it to work.


    Win 7 Ult 64bit, Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 Rev.1/Bios F8 , INTEL i7 2600k 3.40ghz, Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB DDR3 1866mhz (1600mhz@1.60v), Crucial 128GB M4 SSD, WD 1TB Blue 7,200rpm, SG 1TB 7,200rpm (Back-Up HDD), HIS 7850 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E Card, OCZ Fatality 750 Mod PSU, LG DVD-RAM RW
