The PlayStation 5 has some changes in store this summer, according to a report released Friday from Bloomberg. The information came to Bloomberg from sources briefed on internal plans regarding a firmware update that will allow PS5 users to install more internal storage on their consoles.

The change will enable the M.2 SSD storage expansion for the console, according to a Sony spokesman. This will override the bottleneck currently placed on the console in terms of allowed internal storage. Unfortunately, the timing of this update wasn't released. The spokesman simply told Bloomberg that further details "will be shared later."

The PS5 console currently allows for over 600GB of solid-state drive storage for games and other applications. But, with games getting larger and larger, that space can go fast.

Hopefully, PS5 players won't have to wait too much longer for an update on when precisely they can have the option of upgrading their console's storage. At least we know it's coming sometime this year! Stay tuned.
