PS5 will not allow external SSD at launch, feature that will come in update



PS5 will not allow external SSD at launch, feature that will come in update


PS5 will only have 670 GB usable

With the launch of PS5 It’s from Xbox Series X | S, players will have to start thinking about storing their games that get bigger and bigger.

Both consoles feature SSDs, which will greatly reduce loading times, but the days of expanding your storage by connecting any old portable hard drives are over. In fact, it looks like you won’t be able to expand your PS5’s storage at launch. This is a potential problem, as the PS5’s integrated SSD offers 825 GB of storage, with only about 670 GB being usable for games.

Microsoft and Sony are taking different approaches to expanding storage to their next generation consoles. The Xbox Series X and S will offer easy plug-and-play SSD expansion cards, with options from multiple manufacturers being offered. In the meantime, the PS5 will be compatible with conventional M.2 SSDs, but you will have to open the console case to install them.

Although, again, don’t expect to be able to expand your PS5’s storage out of the box. The feature will apparently be disabled at launch, with Sony telling The Verge that the option will be “reserved for a future update”.
