    Source?
    For example PS4s FAQ confirms that it's a 500GB HDD that can be swapped with no support for externals.

    I'm not sure if theres any one source that confirms the Xbox One part, but it's common knowledge for a long time now that it's also 500GB, can't be swapped but X1 will eventually support external HDDs (but not at launch).

    Will users be able to replace PS4s stock 500GB hard drive? What hard drive sizes are supported?

    PS4 owners will be able to replace PS4s standard hard drive. PS4s hard drive is used to store downloaded game and video content, game save files, gameplay movies and images, and more.

    As for the Xbox One, I know this is old, but didn't find an official Microsoft source quickly-enough to care:

    Xbox One has non-replaceable hard drive, external storage is supported

    Whether this means we can't replace a One's HDD AT ALL, or if it means it's 360-like, and means massive overpayment for additional storage, we will see. We also don't know WHEN external HDD support will arrive, nor do we know if it allows for playing games over USB, or if they must be transferred, then played.

    Thanks for the sources, I hadn't heard that the Xbox HDD would be non-user serviceable. I figured it'd be similar to the Xbox 360 Slim.

    Your source link actually confirms, though not explicitly, that games can be played off the usb hard drives (I assume it would need to meet minimum speed requirements).
    Penello confirmed that the USB 3.0 port is there for external storage, which can be used for everything the internal storage can be used for.
    So that's good at least. Now we just need to know when support is coming.
