anyone using mechanical HDD and trying to catch all rare endemic pet? that's gotta be very frustrating...
i'm using SSD with "only" 15 to 20 seconds loading and it's getting unbearable already.

seriously capcom tester probably all run on dev kits or pc with high speed ssd, they probalby have no idea how much time is wasted watching loading screen when cycling through maps for that correct weather rng roll.

I'm so happy that all endemic life crowns aren't necessary for trophies ... I mean, God damn, even crakes have crowns? I've caught 12 crakes since Iceborne and not got a crown.

Funny how we need to upgrade the storage of an already "upgraded" console that forgot to upgrade their storage even tho most spent $400 for the original ps4, then another $400 for the Pro and now an additional $100+ for an SSD. All of this to play in sub 30fsp on medium/low settings. What a deal.

Add a few years of PS+ to that :^).

Not sure if that would work.

I -think- you would take your PC and split it into two, formatting both, with the first being the larger. Then you just plug it to the PS4 and I think it would only recognize the first partition and format that as external.

Of course it might not work.

PS4 formats entire disc, not sure partitioning will work.

Yes, but a partition is treated as two drives, not one.

If the PS4 only "sees" the first partition and cannot access the second, it won't know it is there. So if you have an 800gb first partition, the PS4 may only recognize that 800gb part, and work with it.

It's worth a try, since there won't be anything on the drive to start with anyways.

Best case, it works and you get a dual drive. Worst case, it formats it all to a single partition and you get an external SSD for your PS4.

I've been playing the PC version for months before Iceborne came out. Now that I have to go back to the PS4, the bad framerate I've gotten used to, the constant slowdown doesn't bother me all that much, I hate the DS4 controller but that's just me, but that I can't stand is the horrible long load times. Sometimes I'll be standing there for 2 full minutes waiting for the quest to ding just so I can leave, then I have to wait 2 more minutes on the actual load screen reading the tips.

External Storage is only for games and other applications. All saves, videos, photos, etc. are stored on the internal drive.
