The PS5 is a few short/long/endless months away. That means it's time to start thinking about the specifics, we're beyond just wondering which console you're going to get, we need to worry about the important stuff.

For starters, does your sofa match the cool flair of the PS5, if not, get a new sofa.

You can't half-heartedly approach these kinds of things, and you need to be ready. That's why you really need to know more about memory.

So, just how much storage will the PS5 have anyway, and can you upgrade it?

How much storage will the PS5 have

The PS5 will have an internal SSD that can store up to 825 GB of data. That's roughly enough for four Call of Duty: Modern Warfares, or about 800 cute indie games.

It should be enough for around two or three big triple-A titles alongside some smaller and less demanding games.

This will be enough for those who don't mind deleting games regularly, but it could well be that it doesn't last in the face of the increasingly memory-hungry textures that come with an increase in visual fidelity.

Can you upgrade the PS5 storage

The good news is that you can upgrade the PS5's storage. There are two ways to do this. The cheaper way is to buy an external HDD, while the more expensive way is to get a Sony-certified SSD.

The biggest issue with either method though is that they aren't designed specifically to work with the PS5. This means that they won't be capable of achieving the same incredible loading speeds.

This is probably something that Sony is looking into though, and it's likely that they'll release their own brand of SSD drives just to work alongside their next-gen console. After all, they're a company, so they like money.
