Upgrade your PS5 with a 2TB SSD for just $100 with the early Black Friday deal

Are you getting a new PS5 for the holidays? Don’t miss out on storage because Newegg is offering this awesome 2TB SSD from Nextorage Japan for just $100.

The PS5 and PS5 Slim ship with 1TB of storage. Once downloaded and saving space for the operating system, about 825GB remains. For example, after downloading the latest Call of Duty, you’ll be left with about 600GB.

Games are getting bigger, and 1TB is enough for those who don’t play the latest major releases. However, if you stock up during the Black Friday sales, 1TB suddenly becomes quite small.

Nextorage is a relatively new brand, but seems to have been recommended by colleagues, and Newegg users don’t seem to have many complaints. It was rated four and a half stars (or eggs) by 72 customers.

2TB of storage in NVMe format with PCIe 4.0 – required for the PlayStation 5 – is still relatively expensive for the usual brands. Grabbing not only a heatsink and the 2TB drive for $99.99 is a real bargain.

On PS5, you need a PCIe 4.0 drive to install and play PS5 games. Gen 3 is significantly cheaper, but not fast enough for the PS5. Luckily, the Nextorage 2TB for $99.99 is the perfect deal.

Of course, if you use a PC, this will also work fine on your computer. Most modern motherboards support two M.2 drives. If you are still using PCIe 3.0 on the PC, you can still use the drive.

Games are coming out in large numbers these days, many of them on PlayStation and PC exploit. SSD filler for the holidays might include the aforementioned Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but you might also want to consider some smaller titles to install for the holidays.

One of our top picks that this drive is perfect for is Alan Wake 2. The game can send you back and forth between the “real world” and a “mind palace” in an instant. This is a cool effect and uses the speed of the SSD to load a brand new “level” at the push of a button.

We also hear that the new web-slinging Spider-Man 2 is pretty good too.
