Sony Address PlayStation 5 Storage Concerns

Its all about to get a bit tight. Real tight.


Sony has announced that they are looking into the storage concerns of the PS5, after last week’s announcement that the SSD expansion slot will not be ready to use at the launch of the console.

With the PS5’s launch just two days away, Sony has released a hefty FAQ about the console, and in it, they have clarified what they mean by that.

Can I store or play PS5 games from a USB drive?

No, players cannot transfer PS5 games to a USB drive. PS5 games must be stored on the console’s internal ultra-high-speed SSD for gameplay. Explorations for allowing players to store (but not play) PS5 games on a USB drive in a future update are underway.

Given Sony’s infamous reputation of taking their time to fix a seemingly basic feature, we could be waiting a while before a patch becomes available.

It should be noted, that we are still waiting on an announcement from Sony for which SSD’s we should use to expand our PS5’s storage.

If you are lucky enough to grab a PS5 on launch day (12th November), I suggest dusting down your PS4 externals and enjoying the backwards compatibility, because otherwise your gonna fill up that 667GB storage fast.

You can read the entire FAQ here.
