The internal SSD slot in Sony's new PlayStation 5 (PS5) gaming console will not support storage expansion at the time of launch.

The PS5 has an internal M.2 SSD slot that is easily accessible. An official PS5 teardown video released last month explained that the slot is installed "for future storage expansion".

And according to Sony's revelation to tech media outlet The Verge, you won’t be able to expand that SSD storage on day one.

This was previously explained by PS hardware developer Mark Cerny, who explained that not all M.2 SSDs are fast enough to keep up with the PS5, and that they also need to be tested with respect to physical size and compatibility.

Note that the PS5 supports storage expansion via an external USB slot. This is a good place to install PlayStation 4 games, Cerny tells us.
