The PlayStation 5’s ultra-fast built-in SSD is said to have about 800GB of usable storage, but if you want to expand with an additional SSD drive that’s just as fast, you may have to wait a bit longer. Hmm. Sony has confirmed its function. Not available at launch in The Verge’s statement.
When Mark Cerny announced the full PlayStation 5 spec earlier this year, he said support for external SSD storage solutions would be updated shortly after launch, and today’s comment from Sony consolidates that fact.
Hardware support for additional SSDs was shown as part of last month’s next-generation console teardown video, but Sony doesn’t say exactly when this will happen, but the system will come in the future. Requires software update.
For now, you can use a standard USB 3.0 HDD to transfer games and content to the PlayStation 5’s internal SSD for playback, or play backward-compatible games that don’t require the SSD directly from the drive. can do. The following video from Sony.
PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12th in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, and November 19th in the United Kingdom and other countries.
