I would consider "very large" to be 2TB+. To them, I can't really imagine it being more than 1TB at the absolute maximum.

I can already see the deluxe model carrying 1tb with the smallest hdd being 320-500 gb.

I see it being a bit more generous. The basic will ship with 1Tb and the premium 2Tb. The only reason I say that is because 500Gb hasn't been considered large for about 6 years. Very large is in the 2-3Tb range so if they start the premium at 2Tb that leaves room to upgrade it as the generation progresses, with the cheaper model getting some decent space but not as much.

Mmm, one of the first things said at the PlayStation 4 announcement was that they were going to put a "massive" built-in hard drive in the thing. I think DedValve's got the right of it when it comes to size.

Not trying to say anything, but I found this article from my friends tab because one of my friends was reading it. It was shorten to "Sony teases size of."

Not saying anything, I'm just sayin'.

To be fair though sony has every right to tease the size of Microsoft. Then again Microsoft hasn't revealed anything yet, in this case I guess they are a grower, not a shower axe

Who in the heck would want a 3 TB hard drive? That's super overkill. I have a 1Tb hard drive that I use for pretty much everything(I've had it for 3 years) and it is just over halfway full. What other crap are you going to have on your HDD besides games?
Ah yes, that's right, PS4 has a built in capture card thingy!. That will definitely fill up quickly.

Well given that Lego City on the Wii U is 22GB in size, its not hard to imagine a game like Killzone or Infamous being a lot bigger. Sony has been pushing digital a lot lately and I can see a lot of people going digital on PS4, so the more space the better.

And to go with that, Super Street Fighter IV on the PS3 is in the 20GB range. Think it's about 17GB or something like that, so it'd be perfectly conceivable to fit in as large a drive as possible.

We can only hope that the minimum space is 1TB.

Can't be less than 500 GB for the basic PS4 model!! Otherwise, Sony should commit suicide with 12GB!!

They're pushing digital games and some current gen titles are already hitting 20GB. Anything less than 2TB would be an embarrassment.

Honestly, 1 TB would be more than enough. I have about 600 GB on my desktop, and I have not filled that up. I do not need my console's primary HD to have every bit of every download ever. Games are no more than 20GB, giving you at least 50 games. Would you ever have 50 games for your PS4? If you did, I'm pretty sure you could just buy another 1TB HDD for like, $100?

Don't waste money on excessive HDD's.

That's pretty much how I see it.

My idea of 'very large' is 3TB, which is about as big as consumer HDDs (externals anyway) get.

I can see 1TB lasting for a while though. It's less of a jump from PS3 to PS4 than it was from PS2 to PS3, so I don't imagine game file sizes getting monstrously bigger, maybe 40GB in extreme situations. With 1TB, you could hold hold over 20 games of that size, even with the 'actual size' accounted for.

MS will need an even bigger HDD than Sony though, if reports are true (Can't play games via Disk, everything needs to be installed and you need a code, so basically it becomes like a PC games setup).
