In the part of storage, the PS 5 has an 825GB hard disk, but the operating system takes up space. According to statistics, the space available for users to install the game is about 667GB.
The PlayStation 5 has significantly less room to install games than Microsoft's Xbox Series X, mainly because the PlayStation 5's solid-state drive itself is small, and unfortunately, the M.2 SSD extension will not be available for the initial launch.
The Xbox Series X comes with a 1TB SSD, and the operating system's available storage could be reduced to 802GB. Also in terms of free space, the PS 5 has a lot more free space than the Xbox Series X, which has only 364GB.
In addition, both Xbox Series X and PS 5 support extensible SSD storage, but the two devices scale differently. The Xbox Series X uses a plug and play solid-state drive card that can be plugged into the back of the Xbox Series X and S Series, and users can simply buy a 1TB card. SONY, on the other hand, is giving users the option of using off-the-shelf NVMe SSDS to expand the storage capacity of the PS 5.
