The best PS5 internal SSDs can expand the storage capacity of your console and with several of the most popular PS5 games demanding more than 100GB to install a larger hard drive is quickly becoming a necessity for many owners.
There was a time when even a moderately-sized PS5 SSD was hugely expensive (I paid $270 for a 1TB drive in 2021), but in recent months popular models like the WD_Black SN850X and Samsung 990 Pro have become more affordable. And thanks to the current crop of Black Friday sales, these PS5 SSDs are now even cheaper with retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy slicing 50% off these highly-rated drives.
If you’ve been shopping for Black Friday PS5 deals you may be struggling to store all your new games on your console, but thanks to these PS5 SSD sales you’ll have plenty of extra room to play with. Here are my top picks of the best PS5 SSD deals ahead of Black Friday.
