    The PS5 free space is 664 Gib or 712 GB

    Gib equals Gibibytes and GB is equal to gigabyte. The leaked value is correct but it is in Gib not GB.

    Me neither. I hope its something more than just some trial codes to services. And that its more than a cold boot logo (if it even exists) or the cold boot sequence time.

    Maybe its their first time setup experience, like they have a Klank or AstroBot character walk you through it?

    I’m more confused than when I was at 13 years old.

    It's decimalisation gone mad!

    This week I managed to bag a new 4Tb Samsung 870 QVO SSD for £325 as a repository for old PS4 games and temp storage for PS5 games so I'm quite pleased with myself.

    One is base 10, other is base 2. They're using 1000 instead of 1024 bytes for KB and KiB, 1000^2 and 1024^2 for MB and MiB, and 1000^3 and 1024^3 for GB and GiB, and 1000^4 and 1024^4 for TB and TiB.

    Cause its supposed to be the Technology thread for the PS5 Console. But its kind of warped to be the general catch all product thread. Same with the other console Tech threads.

    So wait. Are the GB we talk about when talking about the size of a game this GiB or GB? Why did this 664 GiB then create such a drama if it’s actually 712GB?

    I hate you. I have been eyeing even more SSD storage than my existing 2TB SSD drive, but keep wavering with "there should be better deals for 2TB and 4TB later in November". The 4TB QVO is $449 (no deal) on Amazon while the 2TB is $200 (semi deal).

    Treat yourself. I was seriously eying up the 8Tb but couldn't get it at a good price. Then common sense kicked in; 2Tb in my Pro has served me well and I know I'll be expanding that internal storage with an M.2 at some point. There are maybe ten games I replay and the remainder are install-play-delete.

    I am waiting some some trepidation to see how large the Master Chief Collection install is on Series X. I'm really looking forward to replaying the Halo saga. :yes:

    Maybe one of the surprises.

    Yeah, but I took that as from a face off kind of thing rather than maybe BC related...but you are right, sorry.

    Another thing might be the trials of games I seem to recall...I’m just trying to think what kinds of surprises Sony have - they’ve done well to keep things so quite.

    I like that I know pretty much everything I want to know about my Series X. I like that Sony have a few surprises left for my PlayStaton 5. :yes: I also find myself really, really keen to play Astrobots to experience the DualSense controller myself because I'm still dubious about how big a different it can make despite pretty much everybody saying this is the case.

    On Windows, Xbox and PlayStations, GB is shown but the numbers are in GiB; on macOS and iOS GB is shown and used.

    It’s not your fault, they are supposed to be more consistent with this.
