PlayStation 5 games can’t be stored on external hard drives, according to reports.
But PS5 games can’t be moved to external hard drive in order to free up storage space, GameSpot reports.
This is in contrast to Xbox Series X/S, which enable players to use external drives to house next-gen games for transfer and play on the console.
PS5 reserves approximately 20 percent of its 825GB internal SSD storage for operating functions, leaving around 664GB usable for software.
And Sony confirmed this week that PS5 won’t support expandable SSD storage at launch, with the feature set to be enabled via a future system update.
Sony released a trio of PS5 instructional videos on Thursday. They offer tips to get players started after booting up the console for the first time including using their account, recommended settings, and transferring data from PS4 to the next-gen system.
The PS5 release date is November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, with the rest of the world getting the console on November 19.
Sony confirmed on Thursday that all PS5 sales at launch will be online only, with no units available in stores on November 12.
