Daily Deals: Save on the Best PS5 SSD Storage Upgrades from XPG, WD, Samsung, Seagate, and More – IGN
In order to upgrade the internal storage in your PS5 without compromising on speed, any old SSD just won’t cut it. You’ll need to pick up an PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 solid state drive with at least 5,500MB/s transfer speeds. A heatsink is also highly recommended. You could either get one without heatsink and add it yourself, which is very easy to do and only costs about $12 on Amazon, or you could buy one with a pre-installed heatsink. PS5 SSD prices have dropped pretty significantly since late last year, with the XPG model being far and away the best bang for your buck. We’ve posted the best prices on other popular options below, as well as other deals you might be interested in.
Cheapest PS5-Compatible SSD with Heatsink: XPG GAMMIX S70 Blade 1TB M.2 PCIe Gen4 SSD
This Black Friday deal is back. The XPG Gammix S70 Blade is one of the more recently released SSDs that’s specifically designed for your PS5 storage upgrade. It also happens to be the lowest priced PS5-compatible 1TB SSD with heatsink available. In fact, it’s even less expensive than most compatible SSDs without heatsink. The S70 Blade boasts transfer rates up to 7,400 MB/s and a PCIe Gen4 interface. It includes a PS5-compatible low-profile aluminum heatsink. It’s not beefy, but it works and it fits.

40% Off Demon’s Souls for PS5
Demon’s Souls is a remake of the original PlayStation classic. It’s completely rebuilt from the ground up, and even if you were good enough to beat the original, this will feel like a completely novel experience. You can play in full 4K at 30fps, but the 1440p at 60fps “performance” mode is even more impressive; there’s very little drop in visual quality, but the feel of playing a game that relies so much on iframes and dodging in glorious 60fps is something that everyone should experience.
NordicTrack Select-A-Weight 55 lb. Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair)
Walmart is offering an excellent price on a pair of NordicTrack adjustable dumbbells, far lower than comparable brands like Bowflex and Power Bloack. If there’s any one piece of exercise equipment you should decide on, free weights would be a very good investment. These super popular dumbbells haven’t been discounted for months. Investing in some exercise equipment at home means there’s less of a reason to take the risk (and the extra cost) of going to your local gym. Because these dumbbells are adjustable, you don’t need a rack of individual weights lying around. Each dumbbell can be adjusted from 10 to 55 pounds.
$100 Off Nordictrack T-Series Treadmill
There’s a new $100 discount on one of the most popular treadmills on Amazon. The Nordictrack T 6.5 S treadmill features a 20″ x 55″ tread belt with speeds of up to 10mp, incline up to 10%, and a weight capacity up to 300lbs. It also folds up and away when not in use. Note that you can use this treadmill without an iFIT membership (which costs money) so make sure you opt out of that or skip activation altogether when you set the treadmill up.
Ring Fit Adventure for Switch
Do you want to work out but simply don’t enjoy working out? Ring Fit Adventure is one way to get around this hurdle. Ring Fit incorporates a huge variety of excellent workout exercises disguised as an RPG game. An epic adventure awaits you slaying monsters and dragons, tackling new levels, traversing different environments, acquiring powerups and skills, all the while toning your abs and burning calories.
Dell S2721D 27″ QHD IPS Monitor
This is a great price for a 27″ monitor with QHD (2560×1440) resolution and a good quality IPS panel that offers wide viewing angles and excellent color reproduction. It makes for an excellent all-purpose or workstation monitor, and we’ve never seen it priced this low from Dell.
The Hobbit: Motion Picture Trilogy (4K + Digital)
This set includes both theatrical and extended editions of all three movies: An Unexpected Journey, Desolation of Smaug, and The Battle of the Five Armies in glorious 4K Ultra HD. Digital copies are included as well.
New Xbox Series X Wired Stereo Headset 20th Anniversary Edition
Save $10 off the 20th Anniversary Edition of the official Xbox wired headset for the Xbox Series X and S consoles. This is essentially the wired version of the Xbox Wireless Headset.

The standard version of the stereo headset is also on sale, if you want to save an extra $13.
Xbox Game Pass in January 2022: Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Outer Wilds, and More

75% Off the KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Holiday Firelog
It’s cold and the fires are still stoking. The annual KFC Firelog is available for purchase at Walmart, and now it’s 75% off. For only $5, you can make your house to smell like Colonel Sanders’ fried chicken without actually eating fried chicken (or while eating fried chicken?). KFC does explicity state some warnings that you should heed: (1) may result in a craving for fried chicken, (2) please do not attempt to eat it, and (3) please do not put your face directly into the fire in attempt to smell fried chicken. Believe it or not, this isn’t a gag; it’s an actual, legitimate product endorsed by KFC themselves and Enviro-Log is the official manufacturer.
$39.99 or Less Nintendo Switch Games
Save up to 41% off these popular Mario and Zelda titles for the Nintendo Switch. Sure they aren’t as cheap as the prices we saw during Black Friday, but that ship has long since sailed. These are the lowest prices you’ll see for a while, at least until Mario Day (March 10) or E3.
Get Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for PC for Free
Amazon Prime Gaming is offering this game for free for everyone who has an Amazon Prime account. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an outstanding game created by Respawn Entertainment, the same studio that crafted other excellent titles like Titanfall and Apex Legends. Fallen Order isn’t that old of a game (it was released in November of 2019), so it sports some very impressive graphics even when judged against today’s standards. The sound quality and voice acting are top notch, the story is engaging, and there’s a lot to do in the world including light saber battles, gunfights, platforming, exploration, collecting loot, upgrading, and much more.
