With current generation games needing anywhere from 25GB to 50GB to install, the 500GB of internal storage for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was inevitably going to cause issues.
Both Sony and Microsoft have since announced 1TB versions of their consoles, but for those of you not wishing to shell out on a new console altogether, there are alternatives. Microsoft have today announced that they’ve partnered up with Seagate to bring the first official 2TB HDD for Xbox One (and Xbox 360). The external hard drive is priced at $110 and will be available for purchase later this month.
The release of this external HDD is timely, with Rare Replay’s recent release soon to be followed by Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Forza 6 and a large bevy of third party titles, from Metal Gear Solid V to Fallout 4. Coupled with backwards compatibility in November, gamers will undoubtedly be running out of storage space before the year’s end.
Storage issues aside, it’s a good time to own an Xbox One; following a good showing at Gamescom, there’s no reason not to own Microsoft’s console.
