PS5 or Xbox space running low? Be quick, time is running out for Prime Day on external storage

Image Description

Amazon's Prime Day deals are now live, and there's a great selection of external hard drives that can give you more room to store your favorite games.

With Sony's PlayStation Plus and Play at Home initiatives, there's been plenty of opportunity to download a plethora of games for your PS5 console for free. This eventually all adds up on the internal SSD, which still can't be expanded at the moment. 

Let's not also forget the huge library that Xbox Game Pass offers, alongside the upcoming games of Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite arriving, there's going to be a need for a bigger hard drive to store all of these at once.

But do remember that while you can store PS5 games on an external drive, you can't play them. You'll need to transfer them back onto the console's external drive if you want to boot them up.
