Sony launched the PS5 last year without the ability to expand its SSD, though confirmed that expansions would be enabled eventually. Just earlier today, it was confirmed that an upcoming firmware update is going to make that possible, and we now know what the first SSD is to be officially supporting the PS5 as well.

Seagate announced the FireCuda 530 PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD recently, which is going to be launching very soon, and speaking with Finder, they confirmed that the SSD will indeed be compatible with the PS5’s SSD expansion slot, as some have predicted. Both versions of the SSD – with and without the heatsink – will be compatible.

So far, the only external SSD to support the Xbox Series X/S has also been made by Seagate.

The FireCuda 530 NVMe SSD will come with four options- 500 GB, 1 TB, 2 TB, and 4 TB, costing $140, $240, $490, and $950 respectively. If you get the heatsink models though, the price is kicked up to $160, $260, $540, and $990 respectively. So yeah, you’re going to have to cough up a ridiculous amount of money for one of these when they launch in August.
