The fast internal storage in the new age consoles of Microsoft Office And Sony allows them to perform amazing actions that we have not yet seen in the field - but these advantages can also become significant disadvantages for those who like to experiment and experience multiple titles at once
With all due respect to improved resolutions and support for ray tracing technologies, the most significant and noticeable improvement in the new generation of consoles is probably in the long-awaited transition to based on drives SSD Instead of mechanical drives by default, when it is not simple drives but drives that are close in their capabilities to the leading models that can be found in the marketPC Home - so the capabilities are dozens of times better than those we have become accustomed to in the previous two generations in the salon entertainment world.
Yet, storage Flash chip-based is also several times more expensive than rotating magnetic disk-based storage, so Sony and Microsoft have had to settle for relatively modest volumes of storage Fast internal in their new systems in order to maintain the competitive price tag - and this is something that can create quite a few challenges while the installation volumes of games are constantly inflated.
Now that the consolesXbox Series S / X has been officially launched and the PlayStation 5 console is a few days before this festive landmark, we know that the practical storage volumes available to players for their titles are significantly more modest than the official volumes described in the device data pages, as the user interface and operating system of course need inflate storage Dedicated and exclusive on the same advanced and agile drives to operate: the Series X with an official terabyte drive will provide players with 802GB for game installation and playback, the PlayStation 5 with an 825GB drive will offer players 667GB for storage while the discounted Series S can Grant only 364GB of storage Compared to the official 512GB that exist within it.
The storage volumes available in the new generation consoles have not grown compared to the previous generation of consoles, therefore, and even shrunk in the extreme case of the Xbox Series S - but the games themselves will require more and more volume to operate and look their best, in a generation where 4K resolutions become the new default and quality The sound is upgraded and improved and requires higher quality sources with minimal compression or no compression at all. To illustrate, the remake version for Demon's Souls needs 66GB of storage on the PS5 drive to run, the integrated version of Marvel's Spider-Man (with the new Spider-Man: Miles Morales and an updated version of Spider-Man from PS4) needs 110 GB while Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War can reach a capacity of more than 180 GB on the storage drive while active with all game modes and visuals.
New generation games enjoy charging in a few seconds or tens of seconds in the most challenging cases compared to a few minutes of charging which was a common (and terrible) phenomenon in the previous generation, and also include exciting technologies that allow users to switch between different titles that were initially activated in a few seconds. It will be reserved for a single-digit number of top games that can be crammed into storage drives, with no effective alternative on the horizon.
The PlayStation 5 includes an expansion slot for NVMe drives from which games can be played but this capability is not enabled at this time and it is unclear which drives will receive Sony's blessing and support later on, and which Microsoft Office Cracked in collaboration with Seagate To create an advanced external expansion drive with a dedicated connection - with the lack of competition and supply bring the price to $ 220 for one terabyte volume as a base, cost twice as much as average modern NVMe drives in the same volume and more expensive even the most prestigious NVMe drives in the market. -PC Homemade.
Gamers who tend to play only two or three games at a time will not suffer too much from the limitation of modern systems, but consumers who like variety and choice with as many games as possible may find themselves too preoccupied with deleting and downloading titles they have purchased because it will not be possible to store them. Everyone. We sincerely hope that Sony and Microsoft are already working to improve the available offering that will allow users to expand the storage available for the new generation games independently - and yes, also upgraded versions of the consoles themselves with more internal volume ($ 600 for 2TB versions of storage A quick internal sounds to us like a logical compromise) should not be considered a taboo already at this early stage, before a surge of titles arrives which will reinforce and deepen this shortcoming.
