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
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
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!
