PS Plus Collection For PS5 Takes Up 868.46GB

The PS Plus Collection is a pretty exciting addition to the PS Plus service. Whether it will eventually grow to compete with Xbox Gamepass is unknown but for now, PS5 owners with a PS Plus subscription will be able to access a catalogue of some of the best games released for the PlayStation 4 at no extra cost. 

With the move to SSD as the primary internal storage medium for games, we have not seen the same growth in storage space that we would have seen in past generations. The PS5 will actually have slightly less storage than the more recent PS4 Skus had. The launch PS5 will have 825 GB SSD, which does seem quite small when most would be wanting to get a 2TB drive into their system. 

When you take a look at the full game list for the PS Plus Collection, you will see there are quite a few games that are hungry on storage space.

External Hard Drives Will Save The Day

There is some good news to this, however. It is possible to install PS4 games to an external hard drive. This will more than likely need to be using high-speed USB like we have seen with backing up games to an HDD on the Xbox One. 

If you have a large external HDD hanging around with 900GB to spare, you could fill it up with the entire PS Plus Collection. This gives you instant access to all of these games without having to worry about consuming the valuable SSD space that you surely want to save for your PS5 games which you will not be able to install onto an external HDD.
