It is coming in the future but not now says the architect about expandable SSD
Now that SSD is introduced into consoles, the loading times of all the games have decreased. This is good news for fans, but this comes with the price of no expandable SSD on PS5. This certainly has upset many people because this now makes you question the amount of games you can keep.
While the PS5 is easy to excess, and there is room in it to increase the SSD storage, but at launch this feature will not be available. It could be a future update, but Playstation have not confirmed anything. Gamers are not happy since a lot of people were looking to buy the cheaper PS5 digital version.

The Playstation architect explained in a video why the SSD would not be coming. He said that “we are still testing and it could come in the future, but for now we are holding this as the base ground”
The PS5 will have around 667gb that will be usable, that means that you will have to delete to play games when you are in the mood of playing something new, and your storage is full. There are not a lot of games at launch, for now, but the space they will take is something to notice especially when you only have 667gb to work with. With some games such as these coming at launch –
- SackBoy: A Big Adventure: 32GB
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales: 50GB
- Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition (includes Spider-Man Remastered): 105GB
- Demon’s Souls: 66GB
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War: 133GB
It really makes you wonder, is buying a PS5 digital version specially worth it? We reckon its still early days and 667gb is still a lot of space for you to play games with. So for now play games and hope for the best because the update might come soon from Playstation about adding another SSD.
