Whether you’re looking to bulk up your storage for your PS4, Xbox One, Switch or PC you’ll want to head over to Amazon. They’ve just reduced a whole load of hard drives, SSDs and microSD cards for today only.

As there’s so much on offer, I’m going to break it down into different categories – starting with PS4, Xbox One and PC.

For these, your most basic option is the WD Black 5TB P10 Game Drive for $91.99. This will plug into your console or PC via a USB connection to expand the free space greatly – especially so if it’s for a PS4 or Xbox One. These consoles usually come with just 500GB or 1TB of internal storage, so you’ll now have more than enough room for future game installs, patches and updates.

For those who find speed is the priority over space, you can instead get the WD Black 500GB P50 Game Drive for $129.99. This is a portable external SSD that will massively reduce loads times for your games. Note the sharp difference in available space, though. Still, it’s a great option to fill up with a select few games that you play often.

Moving onto the Nintendo Switch now and there are two reduced microSD cards that are perfect to give you a bit more room to breathe with your console.

Of the pair, the 256GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card for $27.99 is easily the best value. With a Switch console only boasting 32GB of internal storage, you’ll see that fill up incredibly fast as your game library grows. This inexpensive addition will ensure you won’t need to worry about uninstalling old games to make way for the new ways for some time yet.

If you want to seriously future-proof, though, you can instead go for the 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card at $44.79. If you envision a lot of Switch games in your future, this may be the way to go for the relatively small jump in price.

Lastly, there are a couple of other PC SSDs that are reduced today. These are the internal NVMe SSDs that boast speeds over four times faster than standard SSDs. Just be sure your motherboard supports the M.2 connection these require.

The best of the lot is the 500GB WD Black SN750 for $69.99. That’s a reasonable amount of space for a bearable cost. If you’ve got a bit more cash to burn, though, you can instead plump for the 2TB SN750 for $339.99. Still a lot of money, sure, but that’s $60 off the usual price.

As you can see, Amazon has gone pretty big with its storage deals today – and that’s not even the half of it! Be sure to check out the full list of WD and SanDisk storage on sale to see if there’s anything else better suited to your needs.
