    1TB is too little for us on the PS4 Pro now, should really have upgraded it already (did that with the original PS4 which has 2TB which is much better). Have so many big games that I’ve had to delete long before I completed them.

    Use an external drive either for your kids or for your gaming needs.

    As someone who wanted a hybrid approach for the 1X and still wouldn't have minded until pretty recently I feel your pain.

    But I suspect it will also be the same for PS5.

    For xsx, let's hope that the usb connections aren't hobbled. So you can back your games up to external ssd.
    If they use intelegent delivery for external storage also, so that you can re install only the parts you need and it does it in order required so can get into games quickly it may not be too bad in reality.
    Compared to the positives that the architecture has.

    Be interesting to see how much the ssd cartridge is.

    Well the ps5 has a 825gig ssd and i don't recall them having an external option. So the 1TB will feel quite large lol

    Mark Cerny just said you can expand PS5 with an external HDD or expand with fast-enough standard NVMe.

    Actually if you look at the link that's for region "en-IN". The USA link is "en-US". The latter still says Holiday 2020. :/

    external drive is for ps4 games. I'd love to see the price for a fast enough NVMe. Hopefully they go into more detail

    I suggest you go to the on-topic thread what I quoted what he said in full. This is obviously not the place for it.

    With no duplication of data it is hard to say if games will be bigger

    Not only this the compression is only 50% on PS4 data here it is 160%.

    Do people really expect games sizes to stop growing? Once devs remove the duplicate data, they now have space for more data which they will fill.

    How do you estimate the average size of duplicated data?

    I would say on average 40 GB for a 100 GB games. ;) same than when I said here than with decompression PS5 will be above 7 GB/s.

    Is it that much? If that was true wouldn't PC releases be substantially smaller than their console counterparts, or have visible duplicate files in their installs?
