Why can't I put PS5 games on external hard drive?
There are a few reasons why you might not be able to put PS5 games on an external hard drive.
First, some PS5 games require a very large storage capacity. Second, some of the features of the PS5 (like its built-in memory) may limit how much space you can use on an external hard drive. Finally, some games may not work if they're copied over to an external hard drive.
What hard drive should I use for my PS5?
There is no definitive answer to this question since the PS5's hard drive size and configuration will vary depending on the model and country. However, a good starting point would be to use a hard drive that is at least 60GB in size.
How many PS5 games can 2TB hold?
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on the specific PS5 game titles and their size. However, according to Sony's official specifications, the average game size on the PS5 is around 8GB, so a 2TB PS5 storage device should be able to hold around 160 games.
Is 1TB enough for PS5?
No, the PS5 requires 4TB of storage.
A good external hard drive for PS5 should: be large enough to store your games and movies, have a fast USB 3.0 or 2.0 port, be easy to access, and have a simple design.
