With game sizes continuing to grow, that 667GB may not go too far – as an example, the PS5 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War takes up 135GB of SSD space alone (seemingly without installing Warzone).You will be able to expand the storage on a PS5 relatively easily by installing off-the-shelf NVMe drives, which can be plugged in by popping off the consoles’ removable faceplates.
By a very small margin, PS5 does offer the most efficient use of a solid state drive out of the next-gen consoles launching next week – 19.1% of its drive is untouchable, as opposed to 19.8% of Xbox Series X and 28.9% of Xbox Series S.We also have news on why PS5 doesn’t seem to have custom themes, what its new Activity Cards are for, how the Create button differs from the PS4 Share button, and you can read our full PS5 console review.
