If you're on the hunt for the best external hard drive deals for PS5, Xbox Series X or PC, then Gfinity Deals has you covered with this March's best deals!

Expanding your storage capabilities is seemingly becoming more vital by the day, especially with next-gen consoles, due to a combination of large game sizes and understandable limitations on internal storage too.

Before diving in, it's worth mentioning that PS5 and Xbox Series X don't work the same when it comes to SSDs. While you can expand Xbox Series X storage with the Seagate Memory Card, at the time of writing there is no equivalent solution for PS5.

HDDs can be used to store current-gen games and transfer them over to the consoles to be played via backwards compatibility, with some SSDs being able to do the same but at a much faster speed.

With that in mind, let's take a look at what's out there!
