If there is one thing that everybody experiences with the latest generation of consoles, it is the ever expanding size of games and the way they eat away at the console storage space. 500Gb, or even 1TB may sound a lot but the more games you buy, the more you notice that it just isn’t enough.

This is why the release of Xbox One Upgrade Kits are always good news for gamers. The ability to add either a 1TB disc, 1TB Solid State Hybrid, or 2TB option will provide much needed space. Looking at the specifications of the kits on offer the most interesting could be the Solid State Hybrid, because of the performance boost it provides.

Highlights of the kits include:

  • If the Solid State Hybrid option is taken the load times are reduced by up to 39%
  • Plug and Play setup for easy of install.
  • A compact design which uses USB 3.0

Although the Solid State Hybrid may not offer the best upgrade in terms of storage, the increase in loading time performance is interesting and will be most notable in games such as Grand Theft Auto V, which can feature high loading times. Moving from story mode from the Xbox One Dashboard for example, it can see a performance difference of 30s.

Looking at the options on the OWC site the prices are as follows:

  • 1TB – $89.99
  • 1TB – $124.00
  • 2TB – $134
