'Plug-and-Play Your Dreams' with the Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S
proving to be as cutting edge as the console itself. From the simplest of installations to featuring the same ultra-fast SSD speeds as the console -- plus it makes full use of Xbox Velocity Architecture -- Microsoft going the proprietary route is a definite success.
Albeit one with a catch. Price.
Even though backwards compatible titles run fine off of a traditional external drive connected via USB - the need to expand that launch-day 1TB inside the Series X is very real. Thankfully, it's something Microsoft has been aware of from the get-go, with the solution baked into the Xbox Series X and S design back when they were still figuring out stuff like cooling. And in working with Seagate what we’ve got here, available on dayone, is perhaps the most user-friendly storage expansion solution in console history.
Our Full Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S Review
The Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S isn’t cheap by any measure, at $359 AUD it’s well on its way towards “brand-new console” pricing, but the technology it presents is definitely cutting edge.
Using the same SSD technology found inside the new Xboxes you get a PlayStation 1-style Memory Card that clicks and slots into place on the backside of the console, effectively doubling the storage capacity in less time than it takes to open the box and walk over to your TV cabinet to do so.
