    Here’s a few hot takes from Digital Foundry. They’ll be pumping out a tonne of videos as 4K patches trickle in at launch.

    And anyone with a large games library will be needing some hefty external storage. Titles with patches present come in at an eye-watering 100+GB, so the console will store about 9 of them before filling up. You’ll need a lot of patience too, if you’ve got average download speeds.

    So, you'll have to use an external HDD? Which will then slow things down again?

    You better start things up before you leave for work Carlo!

    A USB3 external drive is not that bad. DF tested that back with the first update last year for PS4 which allowed external storage, and found that it was in a few cases even faster than the internal storage, if you used an SSD. I use a regular 2.5” 1TB 5400 rpm drive in a USB3 caddy with my PS4 and it’s fine. I don’t really notice any ridiculous load times.

    Tonight should be the night!


    EDIT: Just called my local GameStop -- they're not holding a midnight launch party.

    S'Ok, I'm old -- I'll pick mine up tomorrow @ 10 AM CST.

    Not a surprise.

    Chances of you gettin jacked while pickin a game at midnight: Less than 1%
    Chances of you getting jacked while pickin up the latest and greatest gaming system just before Christmas that costs $500: Probably still low but for the store I'm sure it is a huge liability.

    Picked up the Project Scorpio X at noon today. Set it up to download the patch and begin downloading Destiny 2 before going back to work.

    When I had come home this evening I had 3 GBs downloaded. #threedayjob

    So tonight I took it offline and am installing all my games on disc onto the HD. Then when that's done I'll put it back online and let it start updating each game with their XBX enhancement packs. But I don't want to fight it just to get the base games on it.

    So I'm done with the base game installs, now I'm queuing up the 4K packs. I should be back online sometime this weekend.
