Why is nobody talking about how expensive PS5 storage upgrades will be?

PS5 only comes with 825gb of storage (actually will only be 768GB after 1000-1024MB conversion). And after factoring in the OS reserved space, it might end up only being around 700GB of free space for games!! 

Modern warfare is around 200GB! and  I know PS5 games can be made smaller due to SSD not needing duplicated data and better compression. But this will likely be counter balanced by next gen games using more data. So don't expect smaller games.Considering that the best and most expensive  PCIE 4.0 ssds available are not fast enough for ps5. Sony hinted at 7GB/s speed being required to maintain compatibility with games designed for there custom SSD. You can imagine how expensive an ssd that can run constantly at that speed will be?

    Use an external USB drive like you do now, with the extra step of having to move PS5 games to internal storage before you can play them. Over time, the extended storage will come down in price.
