    We are talking Sony using them officially, not aftermarket. None of it matters unless it's included in the unit from the factory. No games will be engineered to take advantage of faster storage that .0001% of users will decide to install themselves.

    The PS4 SATA interface is done over a USB-to-SATA adapter and the USB master is on the chipset, that then talks with the CPU.

    Thats why even using an SSD in a PS4 doesn't gain you much at all, even regarding load times of games..

    Watch this when you have time:
