PlayStation 5's expandable storage will not be enabled at launch

06 November 2020
At first, you'll have fit within the 667 GB of internal storage available for games while Sony figures out which M.2 SSDs are compatible with the console.

Sort by:

It is not even funny anymore. It shows that Sony slept to long and they are not ready for this Generation. Everyday we can hear/read information about problems with PS5. It is Covid it is not easy to launch anything today but still. I did not hear that much problems with any release lately..... Even the most faithful Sony Fans from my friends are questioning a sense of Buying PS5. Most of them wat to see and wait for PS5 Pro which will hopefully fix all PS5 issues.

Anonymous, 08 Nov 2020Now i can confirm...... gsmarena full with sony hater. Ever... moreSony Haters... ?!! Wonder how does a brand manages to get that many people's negative opinions. Does people become haters for no reason? SONY manages to do that because of their marketing decisions and policies.
And no PS5 isn't trash It's really a worthy true Next-Gen console. it just that Xbox series X offers a tad bit more in comparison to PS5. Exclusive titles aren't everything. Versatility should also be considered.

Anonymous, 08 Nov 2020Now i can confirm...... gsmarena full with sony hater. Ever... moreIt's not about reviews or hatred, just because you have some excellent exclusive doesn't mean you bought every consumers. Sony has always been bad for backwards compatibility plus they are ramping up the prices for games, taking out support for 1440p, where there is still so many people who play games on their pc monitor.

I'm not a sony hater, I love Sony's Exclusives. But that doesn't mean I have to be a fanboy like you! And support every anti consumer decisions Sony takes.

Definitely not good for gaming. 60 minimum, 100 or more makes games smooth that stable 30 or 60 just can't replicate. I thought these new consoles aimed for 60 minimum, 120 at its best... Such a disappointment.

notafanboy, 07 Nov 2020What about users with 1440p monitors? Are they irrelevant? ... moreSimple. Don't buy PS5. Everything in life has always been about prioritizing, both for the company who choose not to expend resource on stuff 99% of their user base don't care about and for you who have options to not do business with these company.

Or you can keep calling everyone who doesn't agree with you a troll, seems to be working in a bubble innit?

notafanboy, 06 Nov 2020Please go stand in a corner and think about what you just said.I mean the vast majority of console players won't even care that their newest shiny toy that play next gen games unlike the competitor doesn't support resolution that no TV officially support. It's only an 'issue' to the same old insignificant concern trolls littering the web during this period.

Remember the PS4 backwards compatibility (still the same for PS5 except for some PS4 games) or the no PS4 4K blu-ray player debacle?

If it wasn't for Sony's unmatched PS's sales, and its camera sensors, another great part of Sony would have been forced to be sold by now or even worse, another Blackberry or Kodak.

Funny that. A friend of mine hooked his PlayStation 4 on a 43" Acer 4K monitor, not TV, and really has nothing wrong with it.

P.s. By enhanced version I mean, game's version that is made for PS5 like lets say Spider-Man (Enhanced for PS5).
By normal PS4 version I mean, game's version that is made for PS4 like Spider-Man (PS4 version).
You can play the PS4 version from any drive, it will not matter if it's HDD or External SSD (Slower one). But you can only play the enhanced version on the internal SSD. The enhanced version will not run via external Drive.

And the enhanced games won't run from external HDD or slow SSD. Still, if you'd like to try to play them from external SSD or HDD, then be ready to get disappointed.
The nornal PS4 games that are not enhanced can be played though. And in that case, the loint of buying a new console is useless as of now.

P-CHM, 07 Nov 2020I meant that I have no "fanboy" preference, sigh.... more8K support is for video, not games. Games can render at 1440p. Output resolution ≠ render resolution.
