PS4 Pro is using SATA 3.0, according to Sony Interactive Entertainment. The company previously mentioned SATA 2.0, however, they released a correction earlier to confirmed SATA 3.0

The news comes from 4Gamer who spoke with Sony Interactive Entertainment about the new gaming machine. According to the company, its previous statements was incorrect and PS4 Pro does, in fact, comes with SATA 3.0 drive.

PS4, on the other hand, uses SATA 2.0 which should not have been the case. The console released in 2013 and SATA 3.0 was already a norm by then.

Sony didn’t change anything in this regard with PS4 Slim as well.

Anyhow, the good news is that PS4 Pro would at least feature the latest hardware technology. The drive will improve the console’s data transfer rate and storage performance.

The disappointment, on the other hand, is that Sony is leaving behind 4K Blu-Ray drive. Of course, this hardware would not have made our gaming experience better but it sure would’ve been nice to have the PS4 under our 4K entertainment centers.

Sony’s Jim Ryan had explained why they didn’t use the drive.

It was one of a number of factors. As we’ve said ad nauseum, this is positioned primarily as a gaming device. Every design decision is taken with the gamer in mind in terms of specifications, functionality, price and various features. All of those things combine with our view that we want to future proof ourselves and increasingly the trend of consuming video content is from streaming services

PS4 Pro is releasing on November 10 for $399. Pre-orders are live at different retailers in the UK and the United States.

Would you miss the Blu-Ray 4K Drive? How do you feel about Sony’s decision?
