Why would a console OS take almost 200gb?
I'm sure there will be space reserved for the suspend and resume feature. Need extra space for downloads and extracting. Also if games are taking advantage of the bleeding edge speeds the files need to be sequential. So there needs to be room to move things around as the data gets fragmented over time.
It's not crazy to think the OS could reserve at least 100GB if not more.
500GB is plenty for me, but I can see this being an issue for others. Thankfully Sony is allowing off-the-shelf PCIe 4.0, NVMe 1.4, M.2 drives, which are getting pretty cheap, less than $200 for a TB.
