Nowadays its become a common occurrence for a new release to take up more than 100GB on your hard drive, some have even pushed towards the 200GB mark.
Even a 1TB drive fills up fast these days, and with upcoming games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War sure to have mammoth file sizes, it doesn’t look like this trend of gigantic game installs is going anywhere.
That’s why investing in additional storage is a very smart idea. Thankfully Amazon currently has a sale on a wide range of WD game storage options, which will help to make those familiar headaches over what to delete off your hard drive to make room for a new game a thing of the past.

Which hard drive should I get if I’m on console?
WD offers a wide variety of external hard drives that are perfect for giving your PS4 or Xbox One a beefy hard drive expansion. These drives simply require plugin via one of the consoles USB ports.
While you can swap the drive within the system, on PS4 this requires a specific size/format of hard drive and on the Xbox One it involves tearing the console to pieces, so we’d stick with an external option unless you’re confident taking your console apart.
The next-gen of consoles will utilise SSD drives, which allow games to run significantly faster and reduce loading times, but they come with a premium price. You can grab a 1TB SSD drive for £209.99 in this sale, and this hard drive will work with the Series X and PS5 when they launch.
Which hard drive should I get if I’m on PC?
