Xbox One gets its first exclusive external hard drive

consoledemon XBOX

The Game Drive for Xbox will go on sale for $110 at GameStop, Amazon and others, later on this month Even though modern consoles ship with at least 500GB of storage, you only have to install a small number of digital games before your internal disk is full. One of the problems with today’s current-gen of consoles is they only ship with 500gb of storage (well 1tb in newer models), but still it is not enough when you take in the facts that they both copy the full 40gb+ double-layer blu-ray disc to their internal HDD before you can play the game, and then you got 6gb+ download patches on day one of release, combined with a few 2gb+ DLC packs thru-out the year and you can clearly see that your 500gb HDD is going to get filled up with only a ‘couple of video games’. Well no more, as Seagate has come to solve your gamer storage issues, by releasing an exclusive Xbox One Gamer Drive holding a vast TWO Terabytes of info, that is enough for lets say on average about 30 games given todays size of discs, patches, and DLCs.
