WTF! PS5 Won’t Support SSD Storage Expansion at Launch

  • POSTED ON: 06/Nov/2020

Sony claims that PlayStation 5 is faster and more efficient because of the solid-state drives! PS5 support SSD storage! However, we’re not entirely sure about the storage because it hasn’t expanded the SSD storage at all.

The PS5 features have an internal slot that can fit any standard sized stick of M.2 SSDs and make it easily accessible, but the slot is disabled! There is apparently going to be another update in future just like PS5 launch.

According to Cerny, it will be great if this can be done by launch but there's going to be a bit delay and we must wait until we hear something officially about M.2 drive.

Well, not every M.2 SSD are quick enough to be compatible with the new PS5. They’re not even u to fit into the SSD bay. In addition, it’s not even compatible – uh, so what is good for?

If you go out and speak to manufacturers across the board, you find that there is not even a single driver that works effectively on PS5. However, some optimists suggest that their drives might meet the requirements set by Sony.

For the time being, you may work with the internal storage installed in the PS5, but be alert and careful. There’s 825GB in SSD drive so it will have approximately 667GB of usable storage. You can compare the size with the size of the following game requirements.

SackBoy: A Big Adventure: 32GB

Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition: 105GB

Spider-Man: Miles Morales: 50GB

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War: 133GB

Demon’s Souls: 66GB

If you’re interested in buying these games at the launch, be ready to cut half of your storage. Call of Duty game is already famous for having intensive storage!

But the storage isn’t going to be a problem that’s specific to Sony. Microsoft has also gone for solid-state drives and the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will also come with 802GB and 364GB of space. Considering all that, Xbox Series doesn’t really seem like a good deal, does it?

The light at the end of the tunnel is that all of these consoles support USB external storage and Sony has confirmed that it will be available on PS5 soon!
