Jailbreak users showcase PS4s with thousands of installed games
The folks over at psxhax have reported an interesting “trend” of PS4 Jailbreak users showcasing their consoles with thousands of installed games.
If you felt bad for pirating a music album (wait, are those still a thing?) or using your sister’s Netflix account, wait until you see the videos these guys have for you.
In the most recent one, dated from last week, youtube user Canal Tecniqueza showcases a PS4 with approximately 1200 games installed.
A 23TB PS4 Pro with 2001 Games/apps installed
“Weak”, replies twitter user grabman, who then proceeds to up the ante with a PS4 pro containing 2001 apps installed (1994 of which are games), on a total of 23TB storage spread across his internal and external hard drives! (A video that dates back to June this year)

PS4 reaches performance limits with thousands of games installed
With that kind of number, Grabman mentions that he can clearly see where the code for both the PS4 system as well as various community-provided tools (such as HEN, etc…) is properly optimized or not. Some actions on the console take a while before the console is responsive again.
He also notes that there is a hard limit of 1000 games per disk, set at the system level by Sony. A limit which no reasonable human can actually hit? I mean, who could actually play 2000 PS4 games? But installing 2000 fpkgs on a Jailbroken PS4 for science, yeah, I can see the motivation behind that kind of record 🙂
Independently on your opinion of piracy*, it’s pretty hypnotizing to see how long it takes these men of science to just browse their entire libraries.
Personally I think I’m getting close to 250 legit games, most of which come from my PS+ Subcription. Of course, they’re not all installed on my console, ha!
What about you, what’s your number?

*We at wololo.net really don’t recommend you download and install pirated games on a Jailbroken PS4. Beyond the ethics of piracy, you’re also putting your computer and console at risk by installing packages of doubtful origins. But hey… your body, your choice.
