UPDATE : PlayStation 5 will get an Update to Unlock M.2 Expansion Slot
Sony may release a firmware update that would unlock the PlayStation 5’s secondary M.2 expansion slot.
The PS5 comes with two storage slots, one of which is equip with a 1TB PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD.
PlayStation 5 will get a firmware update this summer that will unlock its M.2 expansion slot.
The console launch in November 2020 with a 1TB super-fast SSD and another empty M.2 slot for expansion but it was software lock.
Sony might release a firmware update this summer that would activate the second M.2 slot and allow users to add more fast storage to the console.
While the console comes with a 1TB drive, not all of it is available for use.
Given the size of current generation games, this has been a matter of concern to some gamers.
Also firmware update will allow the PS5’s cooling fan to spin faster to accommodate for the extra heat that will be generated after adding more storage.
There will most likely be specific third-party SSDs that will work with the PS5 that would likely have to meet the standard of the onboard SSD.
The PS5 allows for external storage but that cannot be use to run native PS5 games.
