If you’re planning on playing Final Fantasy 16 on PC, you’ll definitely need an SSD

Those of you considering playing Final Fantasy 16 on PC whenever it launches will want to make sure you have an SSD in your rig.

Back in September, when Final Fantasy 16’s DLC was announced, it was also finally revealed that a PC port was in the works (something everyone generally knew anyway).
