Sony has confirmed to The Verge that the PS5 will not have user-upgradable storage at launch. The means buyers will be limited to the console’s built-in 825 GB SSD, of which only 667 GB is usable. That’s rather small when compared to Xbox One Series X’s 1TB drive where 802 GB is available.

Sony is using a custom SSD for the PS5, which means that not every M.2 drive can be popped into the console. It will require drive manufacturers to create SSDs that match the PS5’s specifications. The expansion slot will be disabled at launch, and the feature “is reserved for a future update,” said Sony to The Verge.
