The PlayStation 5 users in search of an external SSD for their next-gen console now have a new product they can trust: indeed, Sony and Western Digital unveiled the first officially licensed PlayStation storage.
We are talking about Western Digital’s SN850 SSD, which from now on has been guaranteed compatibility with next-generation consoles.
The announcement, as reported by TweakTown, came directly from Sony and Western Digital: these new products will also feature the official PlayStation logo on their packaging to show users that this is a genuine official product.
The newest generation of consoles demand very high standards in order to make their SSDs compatible: a number of them have previously been announced that were tested in conjunction with Sony, such as Seagate’s external storage, although this is the first time an officially licensed product has been released in effect.
Therefore, Western Digital’s SSD represents Sony’s suggested choice for your console and a new product to be fully accounted for by all fans who need more storage space.
As mentioned earlier, obviously we would like to remind you that this is not the only external storage that is compatible with the PlayStation 5: there are indeed many other products that are also compatible and tested with the help of Sony, but which simply do not have the official license.
