All PS5 Compatible SSD Drives Guide

Which SSD drives are compatible with PS5? Sony have confirmed that they will allow you to upgrade your PlayStation 5's included 825GB capacity (See Also: PS5 SSD: How Much Storage Space Does It Have?) by purchasing compatible NVMe SSD drives. However, due to the nature of PS5 you'll need to use an SSD drive specifically whitelisted as compatible by Sony.

Fortunately, as part of our PS5 guide, we're going to list all PS5 compatible SSD drives as soon as they are announced. We'll update this page as more options become available, but in the meantime, click through for additional reading: PS5 SSD: Why It's Better Than HDD.

All PS5 Compatible SSD Drives Announced

At the time of writing, Sony's yet to announce any PS5 compatible SSD drives. It's possible the platform holder may partner with an SSD drive manufacturer such as Western Digital or Seagate in order to offer some officially licensed options at launch.

We'll be sure to update as soon as we know more.

What About Standard USB External Drives for PS5?

You will be able to use an existing USB External Drive for PS5, however, you won't be able to directly play PS5 games from it. Instead, you'll be able to store game data there but will need to move it back onto the main drive or a compatible NVMe SSD drive to play it. You will be able to play backwards compatible PS4 games from these devices though, so if you're thinking of bringing over your existing PS4 External Drive for use on a PS5 it's not totally useless.


Will you be buying a PS5 compatible SSD drive for your PS5? Let us know in the comments section below, and be sure to refer to our PS5 guide for more information.
