When gamers hit the PlayStation 5 shelves in November, they may find it difficult to store more than a few games at once on their console.
According to the official pre-order pages, the titles on Sony’s high-powered machine take up 105GB of hard drive space.
Considering that the PS5 comes with 825GB of internal storage, players will have to fork out for an extra hard drive to play all their games.
The download sizes of some of the games on the console were revealed in a report Techrador.
Sony has recently started displaying the file sizes of PS5 launch titles, allowing gamers to see how much space they need to download them.
Officer Pre-order page For Spiderman: Miles Morales, for example, does for terrible reading.
That game takes up the “105GB minimum” – 12 percent of the PS5’s total hard drive space.
This is for the pre-order version, which contains a ton of DLC, but the base version of the game is still up to at least 50GB.
The Demons Souls Pre-order page, On the other hand, says that the game takes a “66GB minimum”.
Although not as memory-hungry as Spider-Man, it still represents eight percent of the console’s storage capacity.
There are no other pre-order pages listing file sizes, but those two games only consume 20 percent of your console memory.
But that’s not all. It has recently been revealed that the Xbox Series X, PS5’s biggest rival, will be installed with 200GB of critical software.
If PlayStation gamers face such forced downloads from day one, it is likely that only a few games will fit on your hard drive at once.
Gamers who expect to have more games than that will have to buy a dedicated, external hard drive to install their games.
At that size of download, you see a 1TB drive that costs more than £ 70 online.
Sun reached out to Sony for comment.
The PS5 is Sony’s latest and greatest gaming console.
It is the successor to the PS4 and PS4 Pro and is available in two different versions.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – when will they run out and how much will they cost?
Microsoft has confirmed that the new Xbox Series X and its smaller, cheaper sibling Series S will launch on November 10th.
The release date will cover the group in the UK, US, Australia and other countries around the world.
The Disc-Free Series S is priced at 9 249 / $ 299, while the Xbox Series X comes at £ 449 / $ 499.
So how does it fit in with the new Xbox’s biggest rival, the PlayStation 5?
Sony has revealed that the PS5 release date will come on November 12th, but not everywhere.
That date is only for the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea.
In the UK, you will not be able to get it until November 19th.
The PS5 is priced at 449.99 / $ 499.99, while the digital edition comes at £ 359 / $ 399.
They are the perfect PS5 with all the bells and whistles, and the digital edition, which is cheaper but with less specs and no disk tray.
Both consoles are coming to an end for Christmas 2020 with an amazing list of launch games.
And they’re heading for Microsoft’s Next-Gen console, the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S.
Like Sony, Microsoft has chosen to launch two machines: the full-working console with the higher price tag and the cheaper without the disk tray.
