Add 2TB Of PS5 Storage For $123 At Best Buy

Installing your own SSD is a quick and easy way to upgrade your PS5.


One of the key features of the PlayStation 5 console is its lightning-quick solid-state drive, a quantum leap over the regular hard drive that was installed in its predecessor. While the SSD speeds up loading screens and makes hopping back into certain titles almost instantaneous, it's not too hard to fill up the 667GB of usable storage space. Thankfully, PlayStation included an open M.2 slot for users to expand their drives. And right now, you can grab a 2TB SSD for one of the best prices we've seen.

Over at Best Buy, the Crucial P5 Plus NVMe M.2 is discounted to just $123. This version comes with a free Insignia heatsink for a limited time. The Cucial PS5 Plus was engineered with PS5 and PC gaming in mind. This PCle 4.0 NVMe drive has 6,600MB/s sequential read speeds, which comfortably clears the minimum requirement of 5,500MB/s for PS5 SSDs. If Best Buy sells out of the P5 Plus, Amazon has a 2TB bundle with a heatsink for $134.

Two Terabytes of additional space should keep you from needing to delete games from your SSD as often. If you're a PS Plus subscriber, you probably run into this issue frequently.

The Crucial P5 Plus isn't the only SSD that's available at a good price right now for PS5 users. We put together a roundup of the best PS5 SSD deals you can shop right now.

Installing an SSD into a PS5 is relatively easy: All you'll need to do is pop off the outside panel of the PS5--or the right side panel on the digital edition PS5 console--remove some screws, adjust the drive spacer, and then plug your SSD in. Reassemble your PS5 console, and you'll now have expanded storage capacity.
