The PS5’s 825GB of internal storage has been the only real drawback on an otherwise impressive piece of hardware. Not in terms of performance, where its lightning fast speeds have attracted glowing reviews around the world, but in capacity. With just 667GB of usable space, that might not go too far when PS5 launch titles are tipping the scales at 50-100GB each.

One positive, however, was the understanding that external SSDs could be used as a kind of overspill for content. You couldn’t play PS5 games directly off it, but most people believed that you’d be able to move content to the drive when not in use to save you having to download/install it all over again. That’s how it works on Xbox Series X, so it wouldn’t be surprising for Sony to follow suit.
