Cost is the only reason why you would not use an SSD. I’m not going to pay $400 dollars for storage space with better loading times. Loading times don’t matter in online games anyway, you still have to wait for everyone to connect and load the map anyway before it starts, so it only matters in single player. The only game I’ve come across with waiting times that were annoying was Bloodborne and they are still working on their end to ease these up some. I have not heard of rest function issues, I’ve never had any.
Looks like you’ve already said this
Can confirm, most online games I’m sitting around waiting for others to load the match. It could be the drive or my faster internet connection.
omglifechangingdecisionsrhard. If you don’t think you’ll game much on the PS4 just buy a 1 TB HDD. If you see yourself gaming more, it’s a fire and forget investment you most likely will not regret. The prices are pretty close because it’s not THAT much of a difference. Worst case scenario you can always reformat and slap it in a laptop and put something else in.
If you think this is going to be you gaming with a hybrid drive:
You are in for a let down and possibly need to invest in a razor.
Also, I’m going to tell the truth. I only bought the big hard drive so I could download my games instead of going to Gamestop with all those 12 year olds running around buying the same games. I’m a giant and I don’t need to look weirder in public buying things I should have stopped doing 10 years ago. I feel bad enough playing online games like Battlefield and have a team full of kids in my squad.
