PlayStation 5 games cannot be moved to external drives

Yesterday we revealed here how to move content from a PlayStation 4 to a PlayStation 5, and as you may have noticed it is possible to use those external drives that we have from our PS4, full of games , on PS5. However, only PS4 games can be on the external drive, since all “designed and prepared” games for PS5 must necessarily be on the SSD.

Although this is now confirmed, it does not turn out to be a surprise, as the SSD has always been a highlight of this new console. And it’s the opposite of the new Xbox Series S | X, which allows you to install a new generation game directly on the external drive. But as we know, the external storage has a much lower performance than the new SSD, and therefore, its performance will be far from desirable, and will delay the launch of games and lengthen loads.

And Sony also confirmed this week that the PS5 will not support expandable SSD storage when it launches, with the feature expected to be enabled through a system update, which will be available in the future.

The PlayStation 5 release date is set for November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, with the rest of the world receiving the console on November 19. .
Additionally, Sony has confirmed that all sales of its new console will have to be done online, which means there won’t be a console on store shelves.
