Microsoft and Seagate have announced an external 2TB HDD for Xbox One and Xbox 360. The HDD will go on sale this year, according to Seagate.
The HDD supports USB 3.0, and will cost buyers $110 when it comes out later this year. It features traditional Xbox green and black color scheme, perfect to use with your console.
According to Major Nelson Blog:
The drive brings an additional 2TB of storage and the plug-and-play functionality gives you instant power up. It’s small enough to slip into your pocket or backpack and doesn’t need a separate power cord. The Xbox automatically detects your drive and walks you through a hassle-free setup process that will have your drive game-ready in minutes.
Earlier, Microsoft announced a 1TB model for Xbox One. However, for hardcore fans 1TB still isn’t enough. This massive 2TB HDD will allow players to store plenty of games and add-on content, in addition to movies and songs etc.
Considering games are around 35-40GB these days, this new HDD should be on every gamer’s shopping list this season. On a related note, an Xbox One is also announced that is inspired by the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians.
The console packs 1TB HDD and special sounds effects from Halo 5. Priced at $500, it will comes with a digital copy of Halo 5 as well.
The console will release a week early from Halo 5, and players will be able to preload the game. However, the title won’t unlock before October 27.
