More console and PC storage bargains are up for grabs in the Amazon Summer Sale right now, offering a couple of ways to upgrade your PS4 or Xbox One hard drive for less.
The bigger of the two – the 5TB Western Digital P10 Game Drive is down to £108.99. That’s the lowest it’s been since it dipped to £100 back in March. That may have only been four months ago, but with everything going on it feels about 4 years ago.
With most PS4 or Xbox One console shipping with just 1TB of internal storage, this external hard drive will drastically improve the amount of space you have available – at least until Call of Duty: Modern Warfare decides to consume it all.
It’s painfully easy to get working, too, as you’ll just need to connect it to a spare USB port on your console of choice. And as a smaller 2.5-inch drive, it’s a lot more convenient to take on the go – should you ever need or want to do that. It can at least be used to bring backwards compatible games from the PS4 or Xbox One with you to the next-gen consoles.
In fact, two versions of the drive are both on offer. The first is the bog-standard version, while the second has the added seal of approval for use on an Xbox One. Ultimately, that doesn’t really mean much as the Xbox-branded version will also work perfectly fine with your PS4 or PC.
It actually works out as a better deal, though, thanks to the free 2-month Game Pass Ultimate membership that’s included. Worth going for instead, then, if you’ll get some use out of that and don’t mind the Xbox logo on the side.
Even with these discounts, a 5TB drive is still quite expensive – and a little excessive in most cases. For a cheaper alternative, you can instead go for the 2TB Western Digital My Passport that’s also on sale. It’ll serve perfectly well as an external hard drive for your PS4 or Xbox One. It’s even available in a range of colours, should you want to add a splash of personality.
