According to PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan, there have been no complaints about insufficient storage space on the PlayStation 5.
Around 20 percent of the PlayStation 5’s 835 GB internal SSD storage is reserved for the operating system, 664 GB can be used for installing games, apps, etc.
Some startup titles already take up a large part of the available storage space. While Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War alone occupies a fifth of the space, NBA 2K21 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition (including Spider-Man Remastered) each have over 100 GB.
What makes matters even more complicated is that the PlayStation 5 does not support expandable SSD storage at launch. This function will only be activated by a future firmware update. It is also not possible to save PS5 games on external hard drives. SONY is currently looking for ways to make this possible in the future.
Against this background of The Telegraph When asked about any problems consumers may have with the limited storage space available on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan replied:
“We don’t hear about it. We will of course watch what happens when people unpack their PlayStations and use them. We think everything will be fine. We are obviously able to microscopically monitor hard drive usage on the PS5 and everything we saw there suggests it should be good. “
