- New generation game consoles to be the best “iron” for playing games
- Whether you choose the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X / S, you shouldn’t reach for it
- At least one major drawback bothers both gaming stations
The new generation of games, which are not many yet, but are slowly starting to come out on both consoles, differs from the older ones in one fundamental difference. The capacity they take up in storage is increasing rapidly compared to a few years ago, and large open-world games have no problem crunching up to 170 GB. But that’s a huge problem for both game consoles – both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X / S.
Memory as a broom of new consoles
Let’s start with the somewhat more popular PlayStation 5. He deployed a brand new technology of 825GB SSDs in the new generation. They have a fantastic speed, which eliminates annoying loading in games. But they still have one flaw – capacity.
The situation with the Xbox is the same. The top-of-the-line Series X has a full terabyte of memory, then 500 GB. In practice, however, it is all a little different. The operating system of both consoles takes up solid memory, leaving you with only 667 gigabytes on the new PS5, and 802 gigabytes on the most powerful Xbox. This is misery, and every fighter in the world of computer games will tell you that having a terabyte disk designed purely for games is a “necessary foundation.”
Extension is not exactly a solution
The SSD capacity of game consoles cannot be expanded at all at this time. Respectively, the solution is kind of half. You can connect a third-party HDD or SSD to your Xbox or PlayStation. However, this does not look very nice and it is necessary to keep in mind that you have to format the disk, so it cannot be used in any other way.
Sony thinks of the update, but only “into the future”. There is a slot for additional SSD memory inside the PlayStation 5, but it is not usable at the moment because Sony does not offer any licensed discs. And it’s a kind of vicious circle: games have more memory requirements -> consoles don’t increase their capacity extra -> memory expansion is a 50% solution, and so on.
It certainly wouldn’t be out of the question for the next revision of the PlayStation 5 and Xboxu Series X arrived at a significantly higher capacity. After all, enough memory is key to comfortable playing. The state in which you install 5 games on the console and for the sixth you have to uninstall one of the five is not sustainable in the long run.
