The PlayStation 5’s SSD is an impressive piece of hardware, but it does have limited storage space; here are some tips on how to optimize your console’s SSD.
The PlayStation 5 may come with a 825 GB SSD, but that doesn’t mean you can use it all. In fact, there’s only 667 GB of precious storage for your games. Given that some AAA titles regularly clock in over 100 GB (we’re looking at you, Call of Duty), and PlayStation 5 games can’t be moved onto an external hard drive, let alone be played from one, that’s going to fill up fast.
SSD storage is coming for the PlayStation 5 eventually, but it’s not available at launch, so in this video, we give you our top tips to save space on your console. From specific Trophy settings to turn off to game prioritization to, crucially, ensuring that you’re putting your PlayStation 4 games on a USB hard drive, there are many things you can do to get the most out of your PlayStation 5’s internal storage.
We have plenty of features about the PlayStation 5 up on GameSpot, including a roundup of hidden features that you’ll definitely want to check out, as well as in-depth looks and reviews of its launch lineup.
