Do I need a PS5 SSD?
Perhaps the one negative of the PS5, other than its elusiveness, is that the internal SSD can fill up fast. While it’s advertised at a reasonable-sounding 825GB, part of that is taken up by the operating system, which leaves around 667.2GB free for games and media such as video recordings. Considering that individual PS5 games can weigh in at around 50GB, that can soon fill up. If you’re not planning to play many games, you might be fine without one, but if you want a wide selection of games (and the convenience of storing them internally), you probably will want an SSD for your PS5.
