Several details have been revealed for the Game Pass Special Edition of the Seagate 4TB Xbox One Game Drive.
I definitely can use this
I've had a 4tb drive for the longest. Almost time to go bigger.
I’d be amazed if consoles ever came with a 4TB HDD sometime during the end of this generation
Consoles will be cheaper to produce in the future. Remember how the 7th gen started with 20GB-60GB and ended up with 500GB at the end when storage prices dropped significantly.
The industry is moving toward ssd, it will be awhile before we see solid state drives cheap enough and with enough storage for the standard consoles.
Not now it isn’t. Sony and Microsoft will continue using the same brand HDD they’ve been using. It’s far more cost effective to use that design.
Psst....it's just a normal 4tb external with an official box.
I have well over 16TB of external drives. Currently using 1 WD 2.5" 4TB passport and 2 Seagate 2TB Firecuda SSHD drives for a total of 8TB for the X1X.
too much $$$. I just got a 4TB external that's from a reputable company (WD) for only $80. No way this is worth $130. seagate is junk and they dont stand behind the products.
I hear many people say that about Seagate, but I have been using their drives especially their SSHD drives for years no issues.
I'm planning on getting the 8tb external Best Buy has on sale for $130 this weekend.
You can just buy any hardrive as long as it has usb 3.0! Itll probably be cheaper bought a 4tb hardrive works like a charm :)
When choosing a disk drive you should be looking at performance and capacity. Choosing USB 3.0 which has a maximum performance of 625MB/sec is a must even if you are buying a hard disk drive (HDD). The best performing storage is a solid state drive (SSD) with reads of over 500MB/sec and writes over 480MB/sec. HDD's, on the other hand, can have reads of less than 100MB/sec depending on the platter speed. The main problem with SSD's is the fact that they are much more expensive than HDD's for an equivalent capacity. Hopefully by the time the next generation consoles have released the price of SSD's will have come down significantly.
Good luck with that. USB 3.0, which is really now recatogarised as 3.1 ver1=5Gbps or the latest 3.1 ver2=10Gbps. Because of how that translates in operation, there's not a cat in hells chance of getting anywhere near those speeds.
Bought it for my new X
I have 18 games installed on my X, there's plenty of space for the average gamer
Xbox Game Pass, "the NETFLIX of gaming" lol. Still one of the dumbest and nonsensical unofficial slogans for something this year.
