It's going to be interesting to see what the next gen consoles do for SSD prices as NVME drives at 1500-2000MB/s aren't much more than the 500MB/s SATA SSD's.

Yea, I noticed that aswell and I think I'll pick up an ext M.2 case, so that I can use it in the future for different NVMe drives. But I think the main advantage of those over SATA probably will be transfer speed when used as cold storage for PS5 games.

Yeah that is my thoughts leave the internal expansion to a 1-2TB for native PS5 games only and then a 1250+ MB/s range M.2 drive externally to store BC games on and overflow for PS5 transferring if required. I was pricing this up around a couple of weeks ago and the low end M.2 drives that would max out the 10Gbps of the USB ports aren't much more expensive than a 500 MB/s SSD and with the adoption rate of NVME increasing it could even be cheaper in a years time.
