Best Prime Day 2020 Hard Drive Deals For Xbox Series X And PS5

Best Prime Day 2020 Hard Drive Deals For Xbox Series X And PS5

With the next generation of consoles less than a month away, many gamers are looking for affordable ways to expand their new console’s storage. The SSDs that are required for increasing the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X’s internal storage space are quite expensive, and it’s unlikely we’ll see any deals on them this year. Thankfully, both consoles allow you to connect an external hard drive for storage and transfer needs, and there are some great Amazon Prime Day 2020 deals you should consider if investing in the new consoles.

You cannot play next-gen games directly from an external hard drive. However, you can move games between the external hard drive and internal storage fairly quickly, making it still worthwile to have one attached.

Considering how limited stock for most products has been since the current pandemic started, we suggest taking advantage of any deals you’re interested in during Prime Day 2020 as opposed to waiting for potentially better deals during Black Friday–especially if you’re a frequent Amazon shopper. Because the two sales are happening much closer together than usual, it’s not guaranteed manufacturers will be able to restock all retailers in time for Black Friday. There may also be shipping delays.

During Prime Day, we’re collecting the best hard drive deals at Amazon and other retailers holding anti-Prime Day sales. Plus, check out more of the best Prime Day deals for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch along with the best PC gaming deals so far. You’ll also find steep discounts on 4K TVs for next-gen gaming.
