Original Story

Doubling the storage of the PlayStation 4 that was available at launch, the 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition will be released in Europe and PAL territories starting on July 15, 2015.

Sony has yet to confirm a price for the PS4 SKU, but we’re expecting the console to be available shortly for pre-order on retailer sites. Though the PS4 Ultimate PlayStation Edition sports extra storage, we understand no other changes have been made to the specifications.

PS4 1TB Ultimate Edition

Space has certainly been an issue with the current 500GB models, especially considering the PS4 is used to store all kinds of media, not just videogames. In fact, with the OS and other functions taking up room, that 500GB actually surmounts to around 400GB of available space.

The PS3 launched with various hardware models allowing up to 80GB of storage space before further SKUS were introduced with larger hard drives, right up to the Super Slim with 500GB of space. We’d expect Sony to follow a similar pattern with the PS4 with more SKUs revealed over the next few years.
