I just don't get the craze over SSD's. They're really expensive for far less space and all you get is a few seconds shaved off of loading times. Is the smaller storage space and the slightly shorter load times really worth that extra cost?
Anyway, do we have any sort of confirmation that SSD's will even work with PS4's?
EDIT: Duders, I know that the idea is to have your OS and games on a SSD and everything else on a regular HDD, but I still don't see the benefits when you could have two massive HDD's for what one small (relatively) SSD costs. On a good gaming computer, the difference can't be anything more than a few seconds considering that my fairly good PC can boot in a matter of seconds and load times on pretty much any game only takes a few seconds as well.
My loading times are way better. Total cold boot went from 30 seconds to 9 seconds. Say you boot your computer daily, that's 21 seconds gain a day, which is two hours per year just on booting the computer. Now all your programs will load faster too. I wouldn't be surprised if you "gain" a day on a yearly basis. I don't know about you but I like spending as little time as possible waiting for things to load. Sure it is pure luxury but for me it is worth the extra money. Moreover, and I realize this is not a typical requirement but SSD's are more reliable than classic HDDs because they have less spinning parts. I once had a damaged HDD because I accidentally kicked my pc. All in all enough benefits for me but yes you have to make the decision if it is worth it yourself.
As for SSD in PS4 I believe they said that the PS4 will work the same concerning disk change, now that does not mention SSD specifically but I think you can imply it will support it.
