The Best SSD for Sony PS5 (Beta Users)

The new Sony PS5 is an incredible gaming system. With so many high quality games out now, storage is as crucial as ever. That’s why Sony has confirmed that it will allow you to expand your PlayStation 5’s 825GB storage. That’s right, you can input your own internal m.2 SSD into your PS5 system. Now, the PS5 has 825GB of storage space, but you can only use 667.2GB of it — unless you use internal storage. So, which SSD should you put in? Let’s check out the best internal SSD to put in your NVMe storage slot.

Important: This feature is only available to beta users at this time. If you have installed your M.2 SSD in a console that does not have beta system software installed, you need to remove your M.2 SSD before you can update the system software.
