    Why the SSD is a big deal for PS5, Series X.

You're free to think what you want, I'll just continue to do what I do and listen to those who do what I do. That said, should things change and the two devices (regarding this...

You've read what I wrote, yet I've already had to quote an article I've already posted, and you've asked me a question I've already answered about why I disagree with the idea that the SSD in the PS5 makes any difference. You've also deflected a question, yelled at me with a GIF?, made some ad-hominems about me ("hit and run"),...
