Add some PS5 storage with these excellent SSDs

Are you feeling a bit constrained by the storage space you have in the PS5? Well PS5 compatible 1TB and 2TB SSDs are about as cheap as they’ve ever been. The Western Digital SN850X is one of the best SSDs out there, while the Crucial P5 Plus is more than good enough for the PS5, both on sale for under £100 for 1TB and £155-180 for 2TB. These have come in and out of stock on Amazon, but WD and Crucial themselves have plenty of stock themselves, or note availability within a couple weeks.

Top up on PS Plus with 25% off this Black Friday

There’s 25% off on any of the three PlayStation Plus 12 month subscriptions – that’s across Essential, Extra or Premium – and current subscribers can also get 25% off when upgrading to a higher tier. These are the new prices:

  • PlayStation Plus Essential – £37.49
  • PlayStation Plus Extra – £62.99

You can make this cheaper by using PS Store gift cards – you can get a £25 and £50 gift card from ShopTo for a combined total of £65.70!

Grab some PS5 games on disc

You want some games for that PS5 of yours? Head here for the details of the PS Store digital sale, but there’s also a ton of sales and discounts on physical games. These include big discounts on major first party PS5 games like Horizon Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and families with younger kids will want to grab Lego Star Wars, if they haven’t already.

* Very has free P&P on orders over £30

Get 6 months of free Apple TV+ at Currys

If you’re weighing up buying a game or accessory from Currys, then know that they’re also giving 6 months of Apple TV+ with every online purchase (new and returning customers only, and that have not redeemed a similar Apple services offer with Currys in the past).

Get better sound with a gaming headset

This one’s basically essential for any horror game fan, but a gaming headset can really accentuate the experience across all games, thanks to PS5’s built in spatial audio.

The Sony Pulse 3D Wireless PS5 headset is reduced to £69.99 at all retailers – here’s Currys and Smyths Toys.

If you’re looking under £50, then the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 is a solid shout for £47.29 at Amazon, or  £49.99 at Smyths Toys.

And looking a bit up market, the Steelseries Arctis Nova 7X (this ‘X’ version has Xbox support as well, so long as you like green accents) is their latest upper-mid tier headset. It’s now available for £144 at Amazon, or £149 at Steelseries. There’s also the previous generation design Arctis 7P+ Wireless (without Xbox support) for £104.99

Maybe it’s time for a new TV as well?

Look… maybe you want a new TV? Sony has dropped the XR55A80JU 55″ OLED TV with VRR, 120Hz support and more to £999 for the Black Friday period, which is available from Currys, John Lewis, Richer Sounds, Hughes, Amazon, Argos and more.

The LG OLED CS model TV

Blending the 2021 design and OLED panel with some 2022 tech, the CS model TVs from LG are great value.

Alternatively, LG is the better known brand for OLED TVs – Sony actually use LG panels in their TVs. At the same 55″ sweet spot size, the OLED55CS6LA CS model (this uses the 2021 design and OLED panel, but comes with the latest internal chipset, so it’s still capable of 120Hz, VRR and other gaming features. It can be found for £849 at John Lewis (for free My John Lewis members) and at Richer Sounds (for free VIP members). The typical discounted price is £949.

If 55″ is too big for you and/or your living space, then the LG 42″ C2 model is worth a look. The C2 model is the latest and greatest of LG’s OLEDevo panels that are brighter than before and has the latest internal chipsets as well. This can be had for £699 at John Lewis (for free My John Lewis members) and at Richer Sounds (for free VIP members). The typical discounted price is £799.

  1. If you’re after an SSD for your PS5, the Samsung 980 Pro Heatsink model is a good option, but seems to have limited availability right now. It was £99 on Amazon a week ago, but they’re out of stock now. But it’s available for £99 from Currys, or £98 from Argos. And Argos seem to have bonus Nectar points until Tuesday – so 2.5% back in points instead of just 0.5%.

    I’d definitely recommend that SSD, along with those other 2 mentioned. Seriously consider one of the ones with the heatsink already installed. Doing it yourself is probably fine, but if the price is near enough the same, why bother? Pre-installed, you can just spend 3 minutes watching the video on how to install it in a PS5, less than 5 minutes removing 2 screws, installing it, and putting the screws back, and about 15 minutes trying to work out how those white plates on the PS5 come off. (Hint: It needs just enough pressure to make you worried something is going to break!)

    • The 980 Pro seems to be out of stock at both Argos and Currys now, sadly. Heatsinks are simple enough to install, but yes, unless you’re actually saving money, there’s not that much point.

      • Argos have it in stock in some stores. Depends where you live, I guess. Around here, such modern technology is basically considered witchcraft, so they seem to be in stock. Although you do then get funny looks when picking them up.

  2. The PSN top up cards are actually slightly cheaper at Amazon if anyone is looking to save a few more pennies (if you don’t have a Shopto gold membership. Even if you do some are still cheaper).

    • For some reason on Amazon, only the £38 one shows up if you search. But then has the “configuration” option for essential/extra/premium.

      Gives you Premium for £63.68. Or 36% off. And you’ll get £3 back with the PS Stars thing. Giving a total, very generous discount of just over 39%.

      • Yep, that’s the best one currently available. If you’re looking for lower values, there are also cards sold as if they’re for FIFA points but they’re just PSN credit, values £25, £50 and £75, also all with 15% off (however it works out pennies cheaper if you just buy the £25 one as many times as you need).

      • It feels like Amazon’s struggling today. The site works fine, but so many listings are effectively out of stock, have unusual drop menus, stuff hidden in other sellers section. It’s very strange.
