PS5 Game Sizes Get Revealed and You Might Need External Storage

The PS5 game sizes have been revealed, and yes, they do have the tendency to chew through SSD storage at a superfast speed. The 825GB SSD storage of the PS5 might be blazing fast, but it will most probably fill up with some installs of the games that are coming soon.

Till now there are not many of the install sizes announced for the upcoming games, but the ones that have been announced include:

The Demon’s Souls remake will have an install size of over 66GB.

The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition, would have an install size of 105GB. Even, if you install only Spider-Man: Miles Morales, it would be consuming over 50GB of your PS5’s SSD space.



The console games are getting more significant year after year and so have the storage for games consoles. The storage on the gaming consoles have increased too, as the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro comes with 1TB of storage.

But, even if the PS5 comes with a superfast SSD, it has less storage compared to that of the PS4 Pro. And it looks like with the large game install size; players will not be installing the large game libraries on PS5 consoles until Sony comes out with some sort of data compression techniques.

So, the PS5 storage will have an off-the-shell expandable SSD storage. But these should be PCIe 4.0 SSDs, and Sony certified. However, none of them is available right now. Like the expandable storage for Xbox Series X, the PS5 expandable SSD storages would be costing a good amount.

Storage Consumption

The installation of Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition would be taking over 13 percent of the SSD storage of the PS5. If more games would be consuming this much storage, then this will be bad news for the PS5 SSD storage. Like the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4 comes with a massive install size, alongside many other games.

However, this would be a very minimal problem if you have a robust broadband connection for downloading massive games and that too in an expected amount of time. But if your connection is slower, then you will require a significant amount of time and patience for playing the next-generation games.

Compared to the PS5, the Xbox Series X would be coming with a 1TB SSD, but it will also get filled up quickly if the games come up with large install sizes.

However, what is the situation of these next-generation gaming consoles, would more effectively be figured out when they launch in November.

The Xbox Series X is all set to launch worldwide on November 10; however, the PS5 would be launching in the US and other regions on November 12, while the countries like U.K., Europe, and others will have to wait till November 19. Pre-orders are currently live for PS5, Xbox Series X and Series S, but their stocks are selling out at lightning speed. So, if you want to order any one of them, then don’t think for the second time, just order it quickly while they are in stock. Otherwise, you will have to wait for them to arrive again.
