I wanted to get a 4tb ext hdd but local shopping apps no good deals. Give discount coupon like never give cuz price markup, discount liao same as retail price. Might as well walk in and buy. No need to risk bad handling of parcel :lol:

Bought too many digital games during sale and I tend to always clear disc games first so that I can sell them. Now running out of space. I thought 500gb ssd + 2tb ext more than enough, so wrong :lol:

Needs to be specially formatted? I thought the PS4 storage format is FAT32/exFAT/FAT compatible so can just use between PS4 and PC?

extended storage for games installation is using an encrypted format which isnt recognized by windows. you can only format it on the ps4 and they dont allow partitioning.

Even if you use a partitioning program like PartitionMagic to resize the encrypted PS4 partition after creating it?

That sucks. I guess they did that to prevent hackers from introducing malware into the ecosystem.
