Considering the wealth of great PS5 games that arrived in 2023, chances are you had to make some decisions on what to keep on your built-in 1TB SSD. Deleting games and making space for an upcoming purchase is always a hassle–but if you want to future-proof your console, you can pick up a discounted internal PS5 SSD for Black Friday. Several different models (and sizes) are on sale, making this the best time of year to finally make the upgrade.
Best PS5 SSD Black Friday deals
Just a quick note: The original PS5 only has roughly 667GB of usable space, so you’ll be more than doubling your storage capacity with any of the drives listed above. The new PS5 Slim, which is available for $500 with Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for Black Friday, improves on that by offering roughly 842GB of usable space. That’s a big leap, but even if you pick up the PS5 Slim, it’s not a bad idea to increase your storage space out of the box.
The most affordable PS5 SSD to consider is the 1TB Nextorage Japan SSD with Heatsink, as it’s just $56 (down from $70). Installing the hardware is simple, as it features a built-in heatsink, and you’ll get incredible performance that caps out at 7300MB/s. The company is a subsidiary of Sony–so you know its products will work perfectly with PS5.
If you need more storage, 2TB and 4TB models are also on sale, with the 4TB model seeing a steep $80 discount and reaching a new all-time low price. Give this one close consideration if you know you’ll be adding more games to your library in the coming years.
Other great deals include the 1TB Samsung 980 Pro with Heatsink for $70, 2TB 980 Pro with Heatsink for $120, and the newer and faster 2TB Samsung 990 Pro with Heatsink for $140. Be sure to check out our guide to installing an M.2 SSD in PS5 if you need help with the process.
