The Xbox One X's Hard Drive Can Fill Up Pretty Fast

Games optimized for the Xbox One X can look better on the new console than they do on older hardware, but adding HDR support, 4K textures and other enhancements takes a bit more space. With three games taking up over a third of the console’s drive, 1TB of storage isn’t gonna cut it.

The story is too old to be commented.

external HDD support sort of negates that problem, though.

I agree. If you can spend $499.99 for a console, a 4TB external hard drive at around $100 shouldn't be an issue.

Which makes it $599 if you don't have an extra Hard Drive.

This gen in general... hdd's can fill up fast.

HDD's sizes and prices have plateaued a bit. External prices and sizes actually seem to be the best value right now. Looking to get some good deals on one this Black Friday. Either the green Seagate Xbox branded 4TB, or just another 8TB Seagate and be set for life. Before anyone says anything about Seagate, they havn't had the problems they used to have for years now.

Does my Xbox X support a 8tb external hard drive

Pantz378d ago

Yep. They even got an Xbox branded 8TB.
But it's white..

Jesus, that's crazy big. Does anyone else go through half of that? I find myself to be at or around the 2.5tb mark but I uninstall titles that I'm not currently into.

I guess it wouldn't be hard if you have most games.

I bought a pro 2 mths ago it's hdd is almost full without any 4k assets..whats your point.

People (the media in particular) want to downplay and bad talk Microsoft and much as possible. Apparently, they'll never forgive Microsoft from that stunt they pulled when Don Mattrick was in charge. Sony had one of the biggest security breaches in gaming history, and come out unscathed after all that.

When will gamers forgive Microsoft as they did for Nintendo (for the Wii U) and Sony?

So can the Playstation Pro, what's the problem?
