There’s a new system update for the PlayStation 4. It will be available tomorrow. It includes support for an external hard drive via USB. The PlayStation 4 was released in November 2013, making it a little over 3 years old. About 53.4 million PS4s have sold so far. There was a second model released in September 2016 called the PlayStation 4 Pro. A slim version of the original was also created, and it was released at the same time as the Pro version.
The latest update adds a Boost Mode to the Pro version. This adds frame-rate stability to many PS4 games. There’s also an update to the PlayStation VR application. It lets users watch 3D Blu-ray movies in the headset. The quality of 2D images is improved as well. Players can add an in-game screenshot to the background of the home screen. One more feature in the latest update is voice chat in Remote Play.

Here’s more details on the PS4 from Wikipedia:
Moving away from the more complex Cell microarchitecture of its predecessor, the console features an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) built upon the x86-64 architecture, which can theoretically peak at 1.84 teraflops; AMD stated that it was the “most powerful” APU it had developed to date. The PlayStation 4 places an increased emphasis on social interaction and integration with other devices and services, including the ability to play games off-console on PlayStation Vita and supported Sony Xperia mobile devices (“Remote Play”), the ability to stream gameplay online or to friends, with them controlling gameplay remotely (“Share Play”). The console’s controller was also redesigned and improved over the PlayStation 3, with improved buttons and analog sticks, and an integrated touchpad among other changes.
