The new generation is here. Xbox Series hit stores on the 10th, while PlayStation 5 did so on the 12th in some countries. And a very commented subject has been the lack of space on consoles. With games like NBA 2K21 easily exceeding 100GB in the new generation, and let’s not talk about the new Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, it’s easy to fill a hard drive half full. with just two titles like these, either on Series S or on consoles like the PlayStation 5 itself.

With 825GB of SSD, the PS5’s storage stays at about 664 GB usable by the user by subtracting the reserved space of the system, which raises concern among some players.

A question, to which the executive responds the following:

These statements are part of a longer interview, where Ryan touches on other issues such as the increase in the price of PS5 games, the development of intergenerational titles for PS4 and PS5, or also, the possibility that the new God of War will also come out on PS4.
