Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan claims the company hasn’t had any feedback regarding the amount of storage being a concern. The PS5 ships with an 825GB internal SSD, leaving players with about 667GB of space to store all those previous saves and game installs.
667GB sounds like a fair amount until you see that many games have installations north of 100GB. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War takes up a fifth of that space, with NBA 2K21 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition sitting at 100GB each. Older games can at least be moved to external storage, leaving your SSD to get full really quickly.
“We’re not hearing that. We’ll obviously watch what happens as people unbox their PlayStations and start to use them. We think we’ll be okay. We obviously are able to monitor harddrive usage on the PS4 microscopically and everything that we saw there indicates that we should be fine,” Ryan said, talking to The Telegraph.
Eventually anyone that feels the space isn’t enough will be able to expand internal storage, but not just yet.
Odd that they haven’t heard any comments on the size, but made space to upgrade the available storage.
