External Disc Drive


New Member
Our son just bought a new PS5 Console without the disc drive. He's excited and he waited forever to get it.

I was wondering if there is an external disc drive that can plug in to play games / dvd's / blu-ray's? I read that there might be a Sony add on drive?

Let me know our options and thanks!

Nope. Have your son either sell it, or return it. Hopefully its not past 30 days and he has receipts.

Once he has $600: Get the main disc system, not Digital Edition.

The box art for main is WHITE. The Digital Edition is BLACK.

Its better to just get a separate regular blu-ray player for playing movie/TV video discs.
Don't need discs for games - they are all downloadable directly now.
