Of course, you can also use external hard drives for the PS4 and Xbox One and store PS5 and Series X games (they have to be transferred back first to be played). We’ve rounded up the best Black Friday SSD deals available now. We’ll continue to add to this list as more deals go live.

After a year on the market, it’s not unusual to see many PS5 owners going under the hood of their consoles and tinkering with it so that it has more accessible storage capacity. It’s worth noting though that many NVMe SSDs will not work optimally in a PS5, and you’ll need one that meets the following requirements before you can start popping the console face-plates off:

Interface: PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe SSD

Form Factor: M.2 type 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, or 22110

Socket Type: Socket 3 (Key M)

Capacity: 250GB – 4TB

Cooling Structure: Single-sided format or double-sided heatsink

Total size including heatsink: less than 110mm (L) x 25mm (W) x 11.25mm (H)
