New PS5/4 system update allows PS5 games to be stored on external HD


Recommended Posts

Well the Communities have gone on the PS4 since the new update...sigh.........I used to use them a lot.

And neither updates have replaced them with anything like it [Bring back the old "Players Met" from the PS3 , which was brilliant for quickly gathering like minded players of a particular game ]

But they have made the PS5/4 easier to share content with friends across the consoles.

 

Big news fro PS5 owners is they have unlocked the ability to save PS5 games to a external USB HD [It would want to be a SSD IMHO to make it worthwhile ] and copy back and forth between the PS5's internal HD and the external HD.

 

You can read about what the system update does at the link below.

By the way, I've been told that you should always use the USB port on the rear of a PS5 for attaching a external HD, as apparently using the front USB port can cause data corruption.
