Back in March, Sony released a PS4 update that finally let owners use external hard drives of up to 8TB with their consoles -- and any extra space is great when the average installed game takes up 40 to 50GB. Hot on the heels of its new Xbox One external HDD, Seagate has unveiled its first storage device for the PS4, coming in at 2TB.

While that's not quite as large as Seagate's 8TB Xbox One storage device, Microsoft's console has supported external HDDs since 2015, and you can bet this is just the opening salvo of PS4-designed ones. Using one custom-made for the console means the PS4 recognizes it immediately, sets up in under three minutes and won't void the system's warranty.

Seagate's PS4 Game Drive, as it's called, hooks up to the console via USB 3.0, meaning users can install games to and play them straight from the storage device. It works with both PS4 and PS4 Pro and will retail for $90 and be available later this month.
