It’s a good time to buy a PS5 SSD or DualSense controller on Amazon

Amazon Prime Day deals are in effect

If you recently got a PlayStation 5, you’re *probably* not looking to spend another cent on hardware anytime soon. But if you’ve had enough breathing room, today’s a good day to pick up a DualSense controller or a PS5-compatible SSD with Amazon Prime Day deals.

On the controller front, Amazon has marked DualSense gamepads down to $59 for Prime Day, including newer variations like Cosmic Red, Galactic Purple, Nova Pink, and Starlight Blue. Or if you’d rather stick with a more “classic” look, the white and black controllers are also on sale — but you aren’t saving quite as much, comparatively speaking. Those models usually cost $70, while the fancier DualSense colorways go for $75.

A few months ago, I sprung for the Starlight Blue DualSense — it looks nice in person! Spending a lot of money on secondary controllers is never fun, especially when we’ve got longevity concerns, so I always try to wait for deals to pop up. This is as good as it gets.

The 1TB WD_BLACK SN850 is a popular choice for PS5 owners.

Storage is another look-for-deals concern for PS5 owners in that there’s just not enough to go around unless you upgrade. Amazon has discounts on numerous PS5-compatible M.2 SSDs for Prime Day, and one impulse-buy-worthy deal I’ve seen is this 1TB SSD from Nextorage for $110. Another one: the WD_Black SN850, which is $114 for 1TB.

Of course, if you want to go big, there are 2TB SSDs for PlayStation 5 as well — but expect to pay over $200. When shopping around, don’t forget the heatsink!

I haven’t made the SSD expansion jump yet, so I can’t personally vouch for either of these, but I am getting dangerously close with PlayStation Plus Premium’s game catalog crowding my PS5. If you’re feeling stuck or could just use a refresher, Sony has the PS5 SSD requirements and installation process over here.
