Add 500GB To Your PS5 For Only $73 With This Black Friday Deal

Stay in the game with this Black Friday deal on a PS5-ready SSD.


Between games that demand a sizable chunk of storage space, 4K video captures, and constant updates, it's easy to run out of space on a PS5. The good news is that increasing your storage capacity is relatively simple and affordable, thanks to this Black Friday deal on an SSD from Crucial, which is just $73 at Amazon.

This little NVMe drive can add an extra 500GB of space to your PS5, and it has read/write performance of up to 6,600MB per second. If you'd like some beefier capacity options, the 1TB model will set you back $94 and the 2TB version is $200. Keep in mind that you'll need to also buy a heatsink to use this on PS5, but you can get one for very cheap at Amazon.

The Crucial P5 Plus also includes advanced features like full hardware-based encryption, dynamic write acceleration, and adaptive thermal protection to keep your data safe; so, if you're planning to slot it into your PC, it'll be reliable hardware for intensive workloads, high-quality creative content, and intensive gaming.

Adding new internal storage for PS5 is officially supported by Sony, so slotting one of these into your console won't void your warranty.
