We already know practically all the important details of the PS5, we know price, availability and the games that will be available from its launch. However, as we get closer to launch day we begin to see more and more details that, although they may not seem very important, they are, and we finally know how much the first games available for the console will weigh.
One of the great promises of the new generation is the game in native 4K at 60 fps, with the possibility of reaching 120 fps in some games and also with the option to resize up to 8K. However, all this has consequences, as it also means that the games will be increasingly heavy, and Sony has already revealed the space that some of its games will occupy for PS5.
From 60 to more than 100 GB per game
According the PS5 US site, the weight of some games will be as follows:
- Demon Souls – 66 GB
- Spider-Man Miles Morales – 50 GB
- Spider-Man Milles Morales Ultimate Edition (includes Spider-Man from OS4 remastered) – 105 GB
Although these are not the only games that are announced on the official Sony site, they are the only ones that show this information, however, depending on the game, the weight may be slightly less and also much greater, everything will depend on different factors, but you can get an idea of the number of games that you will be able to install on your console.
Unfortunately the PS5 does not reach 1TB of internal storage, since we have only 825 GB, although there is the possibility of increasing this storage with an SSD or HDD, although if we opt for the second the speed of the loading times will not be the same in comparison with the loading times of the console’s NVMe SSD.
This may be a medium-term problem for PS5 users, who will have to either uninstall games, or purchase a separate SSD. In the case of the Xbox Series X the problem will be similar, however, Microsoft will sell an expandable 1TB NVMe SSD card to try to solve this problem, especially with the Xbox Series S, whose internal storage space is only 512 GB, Although the firm has mentioned that the games for this console will be 30% less heavy compared to the Xbox Series X.
