Game install sizes are growing with the advent of each console generation. Now that the PS5 has been confirmed to have an SSD with 825 GB of storage memory, we wonder how much space the launch titles will take up, as well as future PS5 games.
Sony already shows the install sizes of some games on the PlayStation website. Given the storage required for the first two launch titles, your SSD will likely fill up sooner than you’d like.
On the pre-order page for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Launch Edition, there is a warning at the bottom that the game requires “105 GB minimum”. Much of this space will be dedicated to DLC, as the base game pre-order page states “50 GB minimum”.
The page of Demon’s Souls mentions a minimum of 66 GB for comparison. Since this game is designed exclusively for next-gen console, it is no surprise that Demon’s Souls is slightly bigger than Miles Morales who is also making an appearance on PS4.
Install sizes of other PS5 games have not been confirmed for now. But just like the games just mentioned, these will take up at least twenty percent of your base SSD memory. Mainly because part of that space is used for Sony’s operating system.
In comparison, nearly 200 GB of the Xbox Series X’s 1TB SSD will be used for essential software. If the PS5 software also takes up a fair portion of the total storage, Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls alone will fill more than a quarter of the total storage space (via Gamesradar).
External storage and size PS4 ports
Miles Morales for PS4 pre-order page mentions an install size of “52 GB minimum”. This is slightly larger than the next-gen version. The extra space may be required to run the game on an older console.
This refers to how big PS4 titles will be when they are ported to the PS5. PlayStation Plus users will have access to eighteen games at the launch of the new console. If we assume that the games are about the same size on the PS5, these games together take up at least 700 GB with an average of 40 GB per game. The games will take advantage of the PS5’s faster load times.
When we talk about the Grand Theft Auto V: Enhanced Edition, it is still far from certain how big it will be. GTA V was 17 GB on the PS3 and 70 GB on the PS4. Now that the third iteration will bring improvements again, we can only guess how big the game file will be this time.
All of this leads to an obvious conclusion. PS5 owners looking to play more than a dozen games on their console (mainly next-gen games) will likely have to invest in expandable memory.
Although an HDD can be used for older games, the newer titles require an NVMe PC drive with PCIe 4.0 interface and transfer speed of at least 5.5 GB / s. These aren’t available for now, so keep a close eye on your PS5’s storage memory.
