Thanks to the ever-increasing size of video games, we're always on the lookout for new deals on the best PS5 SSDs, and the Amazon Prime Day PS5 often comes up with the goods for those looking to beef up their PS5 storage capacity.
2023 has been a fantastic year for gaming, but, between Diablo 4, Final Fantasy 16, and Baldur's Gate 3, my PS5's poor, overworked SSD has become rather cramped of late. Fortunately, with the advent of Amazon's 'Big Deal Days' and the next wave of Prime Day PS5 SSD deals, it looks as though we'll all be able to save a buck or two on some of the best PS5 accessories.
When it comes to PS5 SSDs, there are deals on a wide range of different products, but it just so happens that five of our top picks are heavily discounted.
The reliable and high-end Kingston Fury Renegade 2TB PS5 SSD is at its lowest-ever price right now, clocking in at $138 over at Newegg - well worth considering if you're looking to squeeze out the maximum value and performance for your money.
That said, if you're looking for a more sizeable SSD that'll truly help you dispense with your storage woes, the Nextorage Japan 4TB Internal SSD promises a top-end solution that offers excellent performance alongside a highly reliable heat distribution system. Coming in at $229.99 at Amazon (was $349.99), the Nextorage offers impressive value for money that you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
With a couple more picks of our favorites below - including the superb, premium Samsung 990 Pro 2TB SSD for just $129.99, and the smart PNY XLR8 kit which comes with its own bespoke PS5 heatsink solution that's down to just $83.98 - there's plenty to choose and plenty worth highlighting this week - many of which rank amongst some of the Amazon Prime Day gaming deals on offer at the moment.
