PlayStation 5 gamers can boost storage with one easy change

You can save precious PlayStation 5 storage space by making this one easy change

With the technical advances of modern gaming comes hefty demands when it comes to your precious storage space. Thankfully, we have a little trick on PlayStation 5 that can give you a storage boost.

Trying to maintain a decent amount of storage space on consoles such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S can be a pain in the backside, especially when a lot of modern AAA video games can demand well over 100GB.

Check out the Easter Eggs to be discovered in Astro's Playroom below!

Each new purchase of a PlayStation 5 console whether it's the original model or the new slimmer version comes with a digital copy of Astro’s Playroom already installed on the hard drive. This isn't really a problem, because it’s a surprisingly charming and fun game, not to mention that it’s a great way to learn all of the snazzy features that your PS5 has to offer. That being said, it does take up just under 11GB of storage without some realising.

“From the team behind the original The Playroom and the critically acclaimed Astro Bot Rescue Mission, comes a brand new platformer preloaded on your PS5 console,” reads the synopsis of the game. “Take control of ASTRO and feel the world through your DualSense Wireless Controller: every step you take, every jump you make, and every enemy you defeat are felt in a whole new way thanks to the immersive haptic feedback technology.”

“On your way, use new power-ups that show the potential of the dynamic adaptive triggers, motion sensor, touchpad and integrated speaker working together to deliver a totally new gameplay experience. Take time to enjoy the many hidden references to PlayStation history and collect timeless artefacts to display in your beloved PlayStation Labo!”

Astro’s Playroom shouldn't be slept on, especially if you’re a keen trophy hunter. Once you’re done with it you can save a tidy 10.98GB of your PS5 storage space when deleted. What’s more, it’s always worth checking what captured content you have stored on your PS5, because gameplay clips can take up a surprising amount of data if left unchecked.

Astro’s Playroom is available to download now for free via the PlayStation 5 store (if it’s not already on your console).
