What Storage Should You Buy?

0

With Sony revealing that the PS5 M.2 SSD storage upgrade feature will be available in an upcoming update, the company also outlined a host of guidelines to ensure maximum compatibility. Thanks to an IGN India reader tipping us off about a Google Doc that catalogues most M.2 SSDs available, we were able to parse through and identify some M.2 SSDs that should work with your PS5 after ignoring some of the lesser known brands.

PS5 M.2 SSD Upgrade Compatibility List

  • ADATA S70
  • ADATA XPG Indigo
  • ADATA XPG Sage
  • Corsair MP600 Pro
  • Gigabyte Gen4 Aorus V2 Premium
  • Kingston Ghost Tree
  • MSI M480
  • Mushkin Gamma
  • Sabrent Rocket 4.0 Plus
  • Samsung 980 Pro

PS5 M.2 SSD – Where to Buy in India

A cursory check on sites like Amazon and Flipkart suggest that most manufacturers aren’t able to meet the necessary 5,500 MB/s sequential read speed, let alone some of Sony’s other requirements like dimensions or cooling. Your best bet would be to check with your local computer store or specialist sites like OnlySSD.

Besides, pricing for a 1TB M.2 SSD should set you back at least Rs. 20,000 if not more, that’s nearly half the price of a PS5. Though to be honest, we’d recommend waiting it out right now. Reason being, this feature is still in beta and when it’s out, we should see a host of manufacturers supporting it with new SSDs that support Sony’s PS5 upgrade requirements.

Can You Still Buy a PS5 in India?

A few retailers tend to hold back a few stocks to make available on their storefronts later on though most did sell out during the July 26 restock. This happens as not all of them have complete clarity of their stock allocation from Sony. In such situations we’d recommend using a Twitter bot to scope out any last moment listings.

Aside from that, your best bet would be to wait for the next round of PS5 restocks. Considering the frequency of these restocks in more recent times, however, we wouldn’t be too surprised if another slate of restocks gets announced soon enough. Keep in mind that you could buy one from the grey/parallel market but you’ll be paying more and won’t get any warranty.
