Space might be a bit of an issue in the next generation, with bigger games perhaps pushing downloads closer to 50GB in some cases. While the PS4 will come with 500GB of internal storage, I can see this becoming problematic in a few years.
It’s a shame, then, that you won’t be able to expand the game storage of the PS4 with an external hard drive. This comes, once again, from the brilliant Shuhei Yoshida on twitter, who responded to the question – as he usually does – with a quick “no”:

Presumably you will still presumably be able to store music, videos, photos to view on the system, and even copy over game saves as you can with the PS3 currently. You can, however, upgrade the internal hard drive of the system.
The Xbox One will support external storage for everything that the console does, including games, and the Wii U (at only 32GB internally) allows for storage of games on an external hard drive. Are Sony missing a trick here?
