PS5 Has Just Over 650GB Usable Storage Space

After the operating system takes up the space it needs, you’ll have far less than the rated 825GB SSD suggests.

The PlayStation 5 launches in just over a week on November 12, but Sony still hasn’t concretely stated just how much of the SSD will be available for you to install games on. We have confirmed that it’s going to be just over 650GB.

The PS5 ships with a custom 825GB SSD, but not all of that will be free for game installations. The console’s operating system needs some of that space from the get-go. We’ve tested it ourselves, and there is roughly 667GB free to install games.

That’s less than the Xbox Series X, but that was always likely to be the case considering the PS5’s smaller SSD overall. The Xbox Series X ships with a 1TB SSD, with its operating system reducing available storage down to 802GB.

PlayStation 5 will reportedly be hard to find after it launches later this year, and it could cost as much as $550

Sony’s new PlayStation 5 gamepad, the DualSense. Sony

This holiday season, next-generation game consoles from both Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox are expected.

Though we’ve seen parts of both consoles, and know plenty of details about both, one major question remains: How much?

In the case of the PlayStation 5, consumers could be looking at a price in the $500 to $550 range, according to a new Bloomberg report.

That unusually high price — $100 more than the launch price of the PlayStation 4 — is reportedly due to the console’s “ambitious specs,” which are driving Sony’s decision to price the console higher than in its previous generation. As a result, Sony is said to be producing fewer launch PS5 consoles than it has in prior generations as the company anticipates lower consumer demand due to the high price.
