No they both have the same storage space. You can buy SSD expansions or use external hard drives. You can only play PS4 games via an external drive. You have to have PS5 games installed on the SSD to play them.

Also, I think you can buy that digital edition with God of War right now via that link. I would highly recommend that you do it now if you want one.

Can you at least temporarily put a PS5 game on external drive just to save?

Gotcha. I’m just so torn. And all the new Ratchet & Clank games and Uncharted, Spider-Man and stuff can be downloaded digitally?

Welcome to the PS5 Club! I don’t know a ton about external drives, but you can go ahead and buy games and install them when you get your PS5.

You should probably play the first God of War first. You get it for free so might as well play it before the sequel.

It's not a big deal. Play the new goodness first. Not going to really ruin anything. And they have a story recap you can watch before you start the game. Enjoy

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

If a game comes with both PS4 & 5 editions, I donít need to download the 4 edition, right? Just the 5, I presume.

Correct, if youíre talking a digital copy. It asks you which version youíd like to download. If itís a PS4 disc, you have to insert it in order to download the P5 version and play that version.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

one last question (eh, who am i kidding?)...can you play a PS4 game on the SSD and it will make it better and faster or it doesn't matter if a PS4 game is on SSD or the HDD in terms of performance?

It will load faster if the PS4 game is running off the SSD. But it takes up precious space

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I can just transfer from SSD to HDD when required. I do that on Xbox all the time.
