Sony, it seems, wasn’t lying when it said that the PlayStation 5 can reduce file size footprints due to the speed of its SSD. The console manufacturer stated prior to launch that duplicated data on the PS4 caused the file size of games like Marvel’s Spider-Man to increase. It had indicated that this wouldn’t be a problem on its next-gen console, because the assets could be obtained faster.
The games are still large, though. Miles Morales eats up 38.96GB, while Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered pushes over 70GB – although does come with all of its DLC included. In both instances, they are smaller than the PS4, but with such limited storage space available on the PS5 – well, even reduced file sizes are still a problem.
