Among the problems of Sony PlayStation 5 owners, these days is the lack of storage they have for more games since despite massive storage of around 667GB, many of the games these days also require larger storage, including the updates that they sent out time and again.

With that, Sony will finally provide SSD support for its next-gen console, which the company promised to do when PS5 first went out.

Additional Hard Drive Support is Coming

According to Bloomberg's report, the plan is to provide support for additional drives that could increase the console's storage capacity via a firmware update, which would also unlock higher fan cooler speeds to prevent the unit from overheating.

Nevertheless, the sources of the news asked not to be named since Sony has not officially made any news to the public.

"As previously announced, we are working to enable M.2 SSD storage expansion for PlayStation 5. The timing has not been announced and details will be shared later," a spokesperson for Sony said, as per the news media outlet.

As of now, however, those who are lucky enough to have a PlayStation 5 will have to wait for a while for the update to come as Sony is reportedly planning to have it released by this summer.

Storage Woes No More

Although the next-gen console has accelerated loading and processing times thanks to its customized architecture, it makes it nearly impossible to plug an extra external hard drive that most players use to increase storage capacity, especially as games such as the latest"Call of Duty" already requires 133GB and most marquee games need at least 40GB to install.

But if the planned upgrade does come, they can attach a new storage unit to download more games they have been dying to play.

Again, the tech giant is yet to unveil the exact date when they would roll out the highly-awaited update, so there could be changes or additions to said PS5 upgrade.

As of now, gaming enthusiasts would have to wait for further announcements from Sony.

Next-Gen VR Headset

The console from Sony was released in November 2020, but due to delays and problems in production caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially the production for its chipset, supply for the console cannot meet the demand.

Furthermore, stores have limited selling the console in person, meaning consumers would have to order from their websites, but due to rampant scalping, many are unable to secure a unit, and most have to rely on scalpers to get overpriced consoles.

This is a common problem for Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S fans and Nvidia RTX chipsets.

In related news, it seems like Sony is also on the move to create a next-gen Virtual Reality (VR) headset for the PS5, as per GSMArena, after Sony SVP Hideaki Nishino has shared a few details about it via the PS Blog.

Based on the report, the next VR headset should have a wider field of view, better tracking input, a higher resolution and will only require a single cord to connect to a PS5 unit.
