Just how seriously you take your gaming is not really important. Just know this, even if you are using an entry level Playstation console, you could be wasting valuable time and money. If you are a casual gamer, you could be stuck not even halfway through your favorite game. This could be because there is not enough memory or hard drive capacity. If you are just starting out, be wary of purchasing second-hand devices from the internet.
Otherwise it could be money down the drain. It is all good and well to take a lackadaisical approach to online or video games, particularly if you are only playing for fun, but if your hard drive is sallow and useless due to the lack of its capacity then what is the use. One game, if you are lucky, and that is it. What a waste of money and gas. So if you are a newbie, take an objective and discerning view when selecting your first PS4 hard drive.
Be prepared to shop slowly. Go through as many reviews as possible before making that final choice. Do not be subjective in your summations. Do not get carried away emotionally in the sense that you focus too much on picking out what you think could be your favorite games. First set up your tools. Make sure that your hard drive is well and truly optimized to carry the heavy work load ahead, even if you are only going to be playing a handful of games.
The subjective view to things will lead you to burning up your hard drive sooner than later. Be objective and shop like the smart consumer you know you can be. Learn what other objective users have to say about their consoles and their new upgrades.
