Seagate launches a new series of Game Drives for Xbox Series X/S

Internal storage is a major problem for all current-generation consoles, and it's forcing gamers to increasingly rely on external storage solutions to keep their came libraries readily accessible. 

Seagate has responded to these needs with a new series of Game Drives for Xbox, all of which support Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. These storage drives will allow users to expand the storage of their Xbox by adding 2TB to 8TB of USB connected storage, which should be enough for a large game library. 

Today, Seagate has revealed three new drivers, their Game Drive for Xbox (2TB or 4TB), Game Drive Hub for Xbox (8TB), and their Game Drive Hub for Xbox - Halo Infinite Special Edition (SE) (2TB or 5TB).

These drives all connect to Microsoft's Xbox consoles using USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) connections and are fast enough to play backwards compatible Xbox One and older titles directly from the drive. Sadly, external HDDs are not fast enough for native Xbox Series X/S games, but Xbox One users will be able to move their games to external storage and restore them to their console's SSD when required. This process is much faster than downloading the game for a second time. 

Thanks to the official Xbox branding of these drives, gamers can be sure that these external HDDs will be compatible with their Xbox One and Xbox Series consoles. While savvy consumers will know that they do not need officially licensed HDDs to use external storage on their Xbox consoles, it is good to know that Seagate guarantees this functionality. 

Seagate's new Game Drive for Xbox products are now available through Amazon.

Game Drive for Xbox is lightweight in design, making it easy for gamers to take their whole library on-the-go. While both drives are connected and powered with high-speed USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0), Game Drive for Xbox does not need a separate power cord, making it easy for gamers to play from anywhere.  Both drives are easily installed through Xbox OS in under two minutes so gamers can launch into action.
