This means that if you want to play COD modern warfare at around 250 gigabytes with updates it would hold up a considerable part of your SSD. You’ve got cyberpunk 2077 and 70 gigabytes and who knows how big halo infinite will be SSDs and hard drives are like parking spots for video games. You don’t want 1 that’s too tight for 6 sites. It just limits your options down the line the fear with regards to the sizes of those perpetually pushed back games is building up and instead of having console owners expand their memory at their own expense making bigger parking spots for their current and future library could be the way.

if you have Netflix no more getting up every 3:00 hours to change disks or cartridges and no more storage management issues as that is managed for you. Imagine your playing watch dogs legion campaign at home and then go home you have to go on vacation on a cruise ship for you right you bring your controller with you.
