It's no secret that video game file sizes have exploded out of control. With the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, those looking to expand their storage should invest in storage expansion cards from Seagate. These cards plug into the back of Xbox consoles and look similar to memory cards, allowing gamers to easily increase the storage capacity of their consoles. Since the Xbox Series X was released, there has been a 1TB Seagate storage expansion card option for Xbox consoles, but users will soon have two more options available.
These new Xbox Series X and S Seagate storage expansion cards will offer a 512GB expansion and a staggering 2TB expansion. The first will launch sometime in mid-November for $ 139.99, nearly half the cost of a new Xbox Series S console. Meanwhile, the Seagate 2TB Xbox Storage Expansion Card will cost a whopping $ 399, 99, which is more than the price of an Xbox Series S console and costs almost as much as an Xbox Series X. Anyone interested can expect to find the Seagate 2TB storage expansion card sometime in early December. Video game file sizes are likely to increase even more as the generation progresses, as games get more complicated and start taking up more space. This is especially true for live service games like the annual Call of Duty titles, and many gamers will likely feel the need to expand their console storage, which can clearly prove costly. A cheaper option is to store your games on an external hard drive and transfer them to the Xbox Series X's internal storage whenever you want to use them, although that's not a great solution for everyone.
Ultimately, it appears that those who really want to avoid having to redownload games on their Xbox Series X and S consoles will have to bite the bullet and invest in one of these storage expansion options. The 1TB solution is still quite expensive, but it will probably get the job done for most gamers. There should be enough space to store various large files, live service games, and a host of other titles as well.
Those who use the Microsofts Xbox Game Pass service may also want to purchase a Seagate storage expansion card so they can get the most out of their subscription. For now, some may be able to work with their consoles' internal storage, but it seems safe to say that many gamers will be looking to expand as soon as they can.
