What size hard drive does the PS4 use? 1 Answer ActiveVotedNewestOldest 0 SteveSickle89643 Posted November 18, 2017 0 Comments The PlayStation 4, like most other game consoles that support a HDD uses a 2.5 inch SATA drive. If you have the money, an SSD drive is the best one to go for but any type will work so long as it is a 2.5 inch drive with a SATA connection.
