Sony opens m.2 hard disk expansion slot for ps5 host this summer

According to the information they learned, Sony plans to upgrade its ps5 host internal storage this summer, open the m.2 slot of ps5 host to install extended SSD hard disk to break the difficulty that players cannot install multiple large-scale drives on the host due to the hard disk capacity limitation, Bloomberg reported.

Sony will make it possible to install additional SSD drives through firmware updates, which will unlock faster fan speeds and ensure that the host does not overheat, according to people familiar with the matter.

The capacity of SSD hard disk that ps5 host brings is about 667gb, but the capacity of mainstream 3A games is almost more than 40g. Games like call of mission need 133g hard disk space. The ps5 custom high-speed SSD makes the game get faster loading speed, and it also makes it impossible for players to expand storage space through external hard disk as before. After the corresponding firmware update is pushed, the player simply needs to remove a plastic cover from the ps5 host and add a hard disk.
