You can say the same for laptops.
So easily replaced, but laptops with larger drives costs more than what the drive would had cost by itself by quite a lot.

In most cases it's cheaper to buy the laptop with the smallest HDD and replace it yourself with something larger or a SSD.

Oh and to answer your question, it's a 2.5 inch drive in the PS4, though with a height limit of 9.5mm iirc.
People have reported 4TB working fine.

Resolving the domain name to an internal warning page isn't "blocking".
That's just a minor inconvenience while people just use a different DNS.

Even if they decide to actively block the traffic originated to and from those IP addresses people will just use a tunnel.

So by all means, "block" it and say you did to get the government of your back.
In real life it has no meaning.

If only the games for these systems didn't depend on Microsoft's and Sony's servers to be accessible for them to work. It's almost as if it's some kind of crazy DRM scheme.

They don't.
At least not any of those I have, they work just fine without PSN.

Even installed a game from disc without PSN validation.

My PS4 games works fine without PSN connection.
As with your Skyrim, I can't synchronize save data or trophies. It's saved local untill servers are up, and obviously can't play multiplayer, but beyond that my games works just fine.

I even installed a new game without PSN connection, without any problems.
