Replacing Storage Would be Bit Difficult

For keeping the pricing of SSDs and storage expansion open for players, Sony decided not to launch an external device as Xbox did. However, the one catch that we found now is that you have to actually remove the entire layer in order to increase the storage. That is definitely going to be complex because a wrong move and the plastic once broken may make the console lose its aesthetics forever. It is not going to be as simple as everyone originally assumed it to be but this depends on the real-world experience. Most players would rather consider going for an external hard drive as it seems like a safer option now.

Massive Heat Sink

The talk of the town when the PlayStation 5 console was completely stripped was the size of the heat sink. While it is assuring that they have used such a large heat sink, it is also not clear whether there could be loud fan noise when it actually runs. The console has also brought in some massive cooling technologies including liquid metal so as to keep the processor running at its optimal temperature. It will allow gamers to play games all day long without having to worry about loud fan noise or the CPU getting hot through the course of the day.

It will also compete against a different approach as the Xbox Series X is focused on subscription-based gaming and powerful hardware than exclusives.
