Think they will come out with 3-4tb hdds? I am already running full on 500gb. What is the best hdds for ps4 currently? So I know what to buy for Black Friday sales. Also should I buy one of them hybrid drives or stick with 5400rpm? Pros cons?
Thanks!

The Hybrid HDDs have maybe a 5% increase performance boost, and cost more. Stay with regualr HDDs. yes 3-4 TBs HDDs exist. You don't need a Sony or PS4 branded one. Any computer HDD will work. I believe it has to be a 2.5" Laptop HDD though.

Can I put the 500gb hdd currently inside my ps4 inside my PS3? I'm looking at Samsung Seagate HN-M201RAD Momentus SpinPoint ST2000LM003 2TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Notebook Hard Drive 9.5MM

You're wrong according to ign's tests.

The only thing the op will need to research is drive height limitation - anything over 2tb in 2.5" format will be thicker than 9mm due to platter density.

Not to mention according to Sony you can NOT run anything more then 2TB even if it did fit. I guess its not setup to support anything larger.
