Forums - Sony Discussion - Portable (or External) HDD for PS5?

Question, How would connecting an Portable or External HDD affect a PS5 to store games?



Around the Network

Mark Cerny in his talk said you can use external HDD/SSD's to store your PS4 AND PS5 games, but PS5 games will not run directly off of the external storage. You will have to move games to and from the SSD to your external storage to play them if you want more than 825GB worth of games at once.

Depends on your internet speed if copy and pasting from a HDD is faster than deleting and re downloading games.

Whichever is faster is what you should do basically.
