Sony has announced that an update to the PS5 will allow you to save – but not play – next-generation games on a portable USB hard drive. Previously, the console only let you save and play PS4 games from external storage. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to re-download massive PS5 games (especially if you have an internet data cap), but would rather just plug in a drive and transfer it locally, there are a few hard drive deals worth checking out today.
At Newegg, The 5TB black hard drive from Western Digital is $ 100 when you enter the promotion code 93XQU39 at checkout. It’s normally $ 150. This model won’t be nearly as fast at transferring files as an SSD, but if a massive amount of storage outstrips the speed, this should be a good fit for the PS5, as well as the Xbox Series X / S. consoles, or for Pc.
For something small, both in physical size and storage capacity, check out Western Digital’s 2TB Easystore hard drive. It’s $ 57 at Best Buy, which is almost half the original price.
It’s been a few days since I gushed about how good this $ 100 deal is on LG’s UltraGear QHD gaming monitor. You can still get this 27-inch IPS monitor with G-Sync compatibility, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 1ms response time for $ 297 at Amazon and B&H Photo. If you’ve ever only used a 1080p monitor, whether you play a lot of games or just want your content to look sharper than ever, this is a treat.
