We know it’s tempting to install as many of the best PS5 games out there at once, so you have as many options as possible on your PS5, but you’re going to find that you run out of storage space quite quickly – especially if you want to play more than one of the best open world games at once. Not literally, but the PS5‘s loading times make it very easy to swap between more than one game – as you may already know. Thankfully, there’s more than one way to expand your PS5 storage space and you can save a lot on some of the best PS5 SSDs right now. Although, you really don’t have too long to save if you want to expand your PS5 internal storage capacity.
Whether you want to install two or three of the best Assassin’s Creed games at once (which one of us at The Loadout has very recent personal experience of) or you want to take a break from one of the best competitive FPS games and play something a little different, you’re going to need to make sure you have enough internal storage. Without introducing an additional storage device to your set-up, this can be a bit of a challenge.
Fear not, though, for you can actually buy the WD Black 1TB SN850 Internal SSD for just $89.99 right now on Amazon – that’s 50% off if you’re looking for a reason why this is a truly fantastic deal. Officially licensed to work with your PlayStation 5, slotting this in to expand your storage should be simple.
If you’re in the UK, though, you’re going to want to check out a slightly different deal. You can currently buy the WD Black 1TB SN860X Internal SSD for just £61.74 – which is over 60% off. This is one of the best Prime Day deals available right now, so you’ll need to jump on it quick.
If you’re looking to invest in something a little bigger, though, you can buy the WD Black 2TB P40 Game Drive SSD for just $169.99 right now. That sounds like a lot, sure, but it’s 48% off the RRP – so, another massive saving worth checking out.
Those of you in the UK thinking about the same sort of thing are in luck. You can also buy the WD Black 2TB P40 Game Drive SSD for just £196.49 – a decent saving on this device’s full price. These SSDs aren’t going to be as fast as the internal ones listed above, but that difference is negligable compared to standard hard drives – and even more negligable when you consider how long it would take to delete and reinstall a game you might not have had space for.
We know this can feel like you’re not really spending your money on anything, but increasing your internal storage space on your PS5 really is going to make your gaming life a lot easier. If you’re an Xbox player, you can also check out the latest deals on the best Xbox expansion cards right here – although, the Game Drive SSDs listed above will also work on Microsoft’s console.
While you’re here upgrading your setup, you should almost definitely check out the best Xbox controllers and best PS5 controllers right here. We know official ones do a good job, but there are quite a few more options than you might realise out there. Sony’s long-rumored PS5 Slim doesn’t sound worth the wait, though, so it’s worth investing in what’s available now either way.
