In addition to the above, the new update will reportedly also unlock higher cooling fan speed to stop the console from overheating. Currently, the PS5 SSD has a usable capacity of 667GB — not idea when games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War eats up a staggering 133GB.
The PS5 does allow you to plug in an external device for storage, but this is only used for PS4 games. However, the update will allow users to simply remove the plastic cover on the PS5 and input a new storage unit to increase its capacity.
Sony launched the PS5 in the US on November 12, 2020, and in the UK on November 19. The console has been increasingly difficult to acquire since initial stock sold out, although hopefully that will change within the next few months.
