CUPERTINO, CA - Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage solutions, today announced the new Game Drive designed for PlayStation®4 (PS4™) systems to boost storage and offer game portability1.
Available in 2TB capacity, the new Seagate Game Drive enhances your PS4 system gaming capabilities and delivers easy installation connecting directly to PS4 via USB cable. The officially licensed Game Drive for PS4 offers graphical branding elements to match the PS4 systems, as well as increased storage capacity so users can retain older titles and add-ons while downloading new games.
“Games can average 40GB per title, so even the highest-capacity internal console hard drives available can be maximized quickly,” said Jeff Fochtman, vice president of marketing for Seagate. “Seagate’s new Game Drive for PS4 offers a storage upgrade so users can keep saved content while expanding their ability to download new games and add-ons.”
Your PS4 system instantly recognizes Game Drive, and it is installed in less than three minutes, so set-up is quick and easy. Additionally, the drive is optimized for the PS4 systems. Seagate’s compact and efficient Game Drive is portable and does not need a separate power cord, so users can easily slip it into a pocket or backpack and take their game library wherever they go. That is instant, portable access to approximately 502 downloaded games, add-ons and achievements for continued gameplay on any generation of the PS4 system1(System software version 4.50 or higher), anywhere.
