During the day today, April 14, Sony has made available the first big update system for console PS5, which includes a large number of improvements and novelties.
Among the many, as announced yesterday via PlayStation Blog, there is also and above all the possibility of keeping PS5 games on USB drive external compatible, so as to easily expand the internal memory of the console itself.
We will also be given the option to choose whether to keep multiplayer installed but remove the single player campaign of a particular title from archiving. Apparently, however, someone would have encountered the first problems.
Tom Warren di The Verge has in fact published a tweet in which he complains seriously problems with USB transfer.
anyone had this issue on PS5 for external storage? I’m using an external M.2 enclosure and it refuses to format as extended storage on the PS5. Formats to NTFS or exFAT fine in Windows pic.twitter.com/h722PBkRNs

Has anyone had this problem on PS5 for external storage? I am using an external M.2 device which refuses to be formatted as extended storage on PS5. Formats in NTFS or exFAT are fine on Windows.
In response to Warren’s tweet, the guys from Digital Foundry: “We had some problems with the low-bandwidth USB 3.0 to SATA connectors, who refused to work on PS5.»
It’s still: “We are not sure that the same thing is happening here as in our case, namely that the bandwidth was not high enough, despite the fact that the same adapter works well on PS4 Pro.»
Other users have also provided Tom with the list of USB keys compatible with PS5, which can be viewed at this address. We will see if in the next few hours there will be other reports in this regard.
We also remember that this update will include some hidden features that have not yet been revealed by Sony. In addition, the 8.50 update for the “old” PS4 is also available from today.
If you want to start preparing for the arrival of your PS5 (in case you’ve ordered one), you can buy the DualSense at the best price on Amazon Italy.
