Upgrading your console’s internal storage is easier than you think.
Whether you were lucky enough to get a PlayStation 5 this holiday season or have owned the console since its debut last year, you’ve no doubt hit a brick wall in your system’s storage space. While the PS5’s built-in solid-state drive (SSD) offers speeds of up to 5.5 gigabytes per second (versus the PS4’s 1 GB in 20 seconds), the 825-GB size feels like a step back. That capacity fills up fast, as I learned myself when I was unable to update my games due to storage limits even though I had downloaded just seven titles. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War alone took up nearly 250 GB.
While you can run through the motions of uninstalling and reinstalling games to circumvent the limited space, that’s a time-consuming hassle. Plus, even if you store them on an external hard drive, you can’t play them from one. Ultimately you need a SSD to expand your PS5 library. With Cyber Week deals running, now’s the time to buy. And once you’ve got one, you can install it yourself fairly easily. Here’s how.
