    No, it absolute does not. Like the PS3, HDD upgrades are officially supported and endorsed by Sony. In fact, they provide the instructions of how to do so on their website (link below), which also tells you which types of HDD are compatible. You do not need to bypass the warranty sticker to access the HDD chassis.

    Opening up the shielding to access the internal motherboard where the APU, RAM etc lies, however, WILL violate your warranty.

    No, it won't. SONY has stated this several times before. Replacing the hard drive DOES NOT void ANY warranty, despite what the sticker says. They made it that way so that users can upgrade any time they want. So long as the console itself isn't opened and messed with, it doesn't matter.

    No, it will not. The hard drive is designed to be removable and replaceable, and Sony even tells you how to do it in the user guides.

    If you ever need to send your PS4 in for replacement though, Sony may ask you to reinsert the original hard drive.

    Yes it will, you should just get a (external hard drive) By that i mean like a big flash drive you can get one up to 500gb more and that will not void the warranty. you can just Google external hard drive for ps4. also the external hard drives are alot cheaper for a 1-2TB it is about 100$

    Yeah it'll void the warranty.

    You could try an external hard drive but it would be slower than an internal one I think.

    What I would do is just delete games you don't play anymore/don't play often, and install ones you do play often. And when the warranty runs out I'd just install a 1 or 2TB drive.

    Yes, once the seal is broken the warranty goes down the toilet.
