Expandable SSD Storage Slot

The PS5 has an 825GB PCIe 4.0 SSD soldered to the motherboard. It uses a proprietary custom controller.
There is a user-accessible slot for a m.2 2282 PCIe 4.0 SSD under the left side panel for future upgrades.


NVMe Expansion[edit]

Currently, any attempt to add a NVMe drive results in the following error:

 A module is inserted in the expansion slot.
 Turn off your PS5, remove the module, and then turn the PS5 back on.
 Your PS5 will shut down in 30 seconds.
