Las Vegas, NV – January 10, 2014 – Other World Computing (OWC®) http://www.macsales.com, a leading zero emissions Mac® upgrade and storage technology company, announced a Hard Drive Upgrade Kit for PlayStation 4 at CES 2014 that will allow users to add capacity and boost performance up to 40% faster vs. stock drive for reducing system load time.

What it does
The OWC DIY Upgrade Kit for PS4™ allows PS4 owners to double storage and boost the performance with an OWC drive. DIY bundles include everything needed to upgrade/replace existing 2.5" drive and transfer gaming data to new drive.
