A new leak hints that the 825GB PS5 (opens in new tab) will offer 664GB of useable storage space. 

The leak – which has popped up at ResetEra (opens in new tab) and, obviously, should be taken with a gigantic bucket of salt until Sony makes an official reveal – shows off what is thought to be the PS5's UI and the amount of useable storage left after the OS is loaded onto the console. 

As we've come to expect now, the leaked images are poor quality and there's no solid confirmation of when they were taken, so even if they're legitimate they may reflect a much older iteration of the UI or OS.

The 1TB Xbox Series X (opens in new tab), however, will give users 802GB of storage space (opens in new tab) after the OS is added (the 1TB storage expansion from Seagate gives you another 920GB of usable space. It's expensive at $219 per card (opens in new tab), but at least it more than doubles your room for upcoming Xbox Series X games (opens in new tab)).

All the PS5 details are finally here, and you'll be able to play with a PS5 from November 12, 2020, if you're in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, or South Korea, while the rest of the world needs to hold on until November 19.

So we now know the PS5 price (opens in new tab), the PS5 launch games (opens in new tab), and that all-important release date.

The big PS5 reveal event (opens in new tab) in June was seriously exciting, delivering us games galore, and our first look at the PS5 design (opens in new tab), not to mention PS5 accessories (opens in new tab)
