PlayStation 4 HDD Data Bank gets U.S. release date

Amazon has listed the U.S. release date for the upcoming PlayStation 4 HDD Data Bank. The latest accessory from Nyko will be coming out on the 9th of June. If you are interested in the HDD cover, you can preorder it on the retailer’s website via this link.

We previously reported that the same accessory is coming out in Japan on the 5th of June. So the North American launch will be four days after the Japanese release.

For the uninformed, Data Bank replaces the standard HDD cover of the PlayStation 4. It will make the system compatible with supported 3.5″ hard drives, which are usually cheaper in terms of value when compared to 2.5″ HDDs.

The color and form factor of the third-party accessory match up well with the hardware design of the PS4. It also has a LED indicator that displays when the HDD is being accessed.

Games are getting bigger in size this generation. Thus, the 500 GB default hard disk drive can fill out quickly if you have more than a handful of games, especially when you consider that all retail games are required to be installed on the HDD. If you have a 3.5″ replacement hard drive you want to use for the PS4, you should check out the Nyko HDD Data Bank.
