Get ahead. Up your game.

Say goodbye to slow speed, low capacity, and the ever-frustrating “Please archive software” notice on your console. Here's our guide to picking the best Transcend storage companion for your gaming needs. Our favorite picks include internal SSDs, portable SSDs, and microSD memory cards designed to bring about a better handheld console experience.

No matter if you are on team PlayStation™, Xbox One™, or Nintendo Switch™, you can benefit from a larger disk space. Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned gamer, accelerated performance and less load time will give you that extra advantage. Without further ado, let's get started!

More games, more fun.

Digital games today take the immersive experience to new heights. But as games have grown in size and stunning graphic detail, they take longer to load and consume substantially greater storage space. The PlayStation® 4, for example, comes with a native 500GB hard drive, which may seem like a lot at first, but as your collection of games grows, you may soon find yourself needing to uninstall old favorites to make room for new games.


Transcend's 2.5-inch SSD230S internal SSD comes with up to 2TB storage capacity, or four times the standard PlayStation hard drive. The SSD boasts read speeds of up to 560MB/s, write speeds of up to 520MB/s, and great TBW values of up to 1,120 TB. It features the standard SATA III interface, making it easy to swap your old hard drive out for a higher-speed, higher-capacity alternative.

Even if you don’t want to swap out your internal HDD for an SSD, investing in a portable SSD also guarantees improved performance. Portable SSDs offer the same high-speed benefits as internal SSDs, but are even more convenient, as you can take games on the go, plug them into another console, and enjoy lag-free gaming anywhere.


Transcend's ESD370C portable SSD is palm-sized and features military-grade shock-resistance and impact absorption capabilities. It is PCIe-based, built utilizing the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface for dazzlingly fast transfer speeds of up to 1,050MB/s. This will let you fly through every game you play. Even gigabytes take mere seconds to load! What's more, the sturdy USB Type-A and Type-C cables allow you to load and transfer games smoothly between the external SSD and your PS5, PS4 or Xbox One.
