A couple of terrific PS5 SSD deals are available today if you've found your console's storage space lacking following an influx of new games over Christmas.

The first is this 1TB Samsung 980 Pro for £128.99 at Amazon (was £176.99). That's just £2 more than the cheapest ever price we saw during Black Friday and excellent value for a speedy high-capacity SSD from one of the best manufacturers in the business. With this installed you will double the storage available in your console, which is enough room for around 20 average-sized PS5 games.

The only significant downside is that it needs a heatsink in order to remain sufficiently cool while in use in your PS5. Now, there is a version with a heatsink included but it's currently priced at £190. You can avoid paying that significant premium, though, and install your own one instead. Add this compatible heatsink for just £10.99 and you'll be good to go.

If you don't feel comfortable doing that, an alternative is to pick up this 1TB XPG Gammix S70 Blade for £123.39 at Amazon (was £176.28). That's only £20 more than its previous record low price over Black Friday. To get this 30% discount, apply the voucher code on the store page and the price will update in your basket.

Compared to the Samsung SSD, this XPG is a simpler and more straightforward way to upgrade your PS5 storage as it comes with a heatsink pre-installed. All you have to do is insert it into the console's expansion slot and you'll be ready to go with loads more room for all your games.

Whichever one you choose to go with, know that these are the best PS5 SSD deals available today so you're bagging a bargain either way.
