PS5 Game File Sizes Revealed, And You Could Run Out Of Space Quickly

Start planning out space for your PS5 games on the system’s SSD now, because they are going to take up a lot of room. In fact, it might not be too long before you have to start deleting games if the file sizes Sony has revealed are anything to go by.

On the PlayStation Direct website, which lets you buy PlayStation games and accessories directly from Sony, Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls both have their file sizes estimated. In the case of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the standard version of the game takes up 50GB, while the Ultimate Edition, which packs in a copy of Spider-Man: Remastered, takes up 105GB. Demon’s Souls, meanwhile, is a full remake of the 2009 PS3 game and takes up about 66GB.

For comparison, From Software’s previous game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, takes up less than 13GB on PS4. The PS3 version of Demon’s Souls is less than 8GB.

With updates down the line, these file sizes could get even bigger. Games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare have drawn some controversy this generation for ballooning file sizes of well over 100GB, and with higher-resolution textures and more detailed game worlds, that only looks to become more of a problem for PS5. The system’s 825GB capacity is lower than the PS4 Pro, and though it will support expansion cards to increase that storage space, those are expensive and likely out of many users’ budget range. Getting 2TB of storage could nearly double the cost of the system itself. When you have a library of games to purchase, as well, it’s a tough pill to swallow.

The PS5 is releasing on November 12 in two versions: a $499 standard console and a $399 digital edition. The systems are otherwise identical, so you won’t be losing out

Software Stock Has Room To Run

The shares of Okta (OKTA) are up 2.9% to trade at $233.74 at last check, a fresh record high. With help from its 10-day moving average, OKTA now sports a 102.8% year-to-date lead. However, a historic bullish signal is flashing that may indicate even more upside for the stock.

More specifically, the stock’s recent peak comes amid historically low implied volatility (IV), which has been a bullish combination for the equity in the past. According to data from Schaeffer’s Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, there have been four other times in the past five years when the stock was trading within 2% of its 52-week high, while its Schaeffer’s Volatility Index (SVI) sat in the 20th percentile of its annual range or lower – as is the case with OKTA’s current SVI of 49%, which sits in the 18th percentile of its 12-month range. Data shows the stock was higher a month later each time, averaging a return of 14%. From its current perch, a move of similar magnitude would put Okta stock above the $266 level, which is triple its March 16 low of $88.66.

Looking over at the brokerage bunch, there may be some bull notes on the horizon for the equity. OKTA’s 12-month consensus price target of $222.74 sits at a 4.5% discount to current levels, leaving plenty of room for price-target hikes that could push the security higher. On that note, of the 14 analysts in coverage, five still sport a “hold” rating on the stock.

Plenty of pessimism lingers in the options pits as well. Though calls are outnumbering puts on an overall basis, OKTA’s 50-day call/put volume ratio of 0.83 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) is in the elevated 84th percentile
