Alternatively...

Fix the console so that the microsd card uses a file system that supports compression, and is not nearly as cavalier about block allocation (*cough* exFAT *Cough*).

Maybe something like btrfs?  (Oh noes, that is FOSS software, that makes Mario Cry!!)

Or perhaps sell nintendo branded sdcards in capacities that are actually useful, instead of overpriced terrible small ones? (Oh no, I angered the gods of marketing!!)

I'm still genuinely shocked at how much damage the recent storm did up here. Still power outages across campus, still fallen trees around, its just been a lot worse and lingered a lot longer then I was expecting.

Just went to the DMV to renew my licence.  I braced for an entire day sitting in an uncomfortable plastic chair packed into a cramped room, listening to numbers announced over loudspeaker in a bright featureless white room, while clutching to all the documents that prove I'm a human being expecting to be mugged of them any moment.

Instead other than google sending me to the wrong place first (the first place was a private tag office that probably could handle it but was going to charge extra) the time in the DMV was actually quite short and pleasant.  They had a tv on that had the now serving numbers scrolling on the side, with the news on. the chairs were plastic but more comfortable than expected, and I was in and out in the space of about 7 minutes, despite some trouble with the eye test.  They even had a cop there.  Not some glorified mallcop but an actual police officer with a gun and everything.

WTF when did the DMV stop being a living hell?  The private tag office I went to at first actually looked like more of a hellhole than the actual DMV did.

Yeah man same in my area. At some point the DMV made it into this century in terms of efficiency and ease of use. I was similarly shocked when that happened to me for the first time, and it's been that way since.

I'd play my PS4 a lot more if its shitty hard drive could hold more than like 6 games.  I own 20.

Isn't that why they made it relatively easy to install your own, larger hard drive in the PS4? That's what my friend who owns one did, anyway.

You'd think they'd just come with a bigger one if they're going to insist on games being installed and making the installation process so painfully long.

(Insert laughter here)

Well aren't you naive? You see, buying hard drives that have plenty of space costs much, much more than buying hard drives that only have some space.

And we all know how businesses are when it comes to spending more on things that won't necessarily generate more profit, amirite folks?

Therefore to prevent console manufacturers from being bastards, spend your money on gaming PCs.

But, but, what if I want to play Bloodborne one day?

This is, honestly, the only reason I'd ever even think about getting a PS4.

Sadly, the PS4 doesn't come with the subscription.
