Once the new generations were announced, they started claiming that everything will be done digitally. If you purchased physical discs, the console would download the game and the disc was the key to start the game. Immediately, it was debated on the storage sizes of their internal HHD, which gave us either 500GB or 1TB. Yes, external storage devices were allowed but never seemed to measure up to the growing file size. Seagate has just changed the game.

The company announced a 8 TB storage and multi-purpose USB hub designed and tested in partnership with Microsoft’s Xbox team.  With current games ranging between 35GB and 50GB, real-estate on your HDD is in short supply. Not to mention with their focus on 4K titles, Game Pass and backwards compatibility options, this makes sense for anyone with a huge library.

Seagate claims that the Game Drive Hub works with any of the Xbox One consoles: Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X. It will hold over 200 games, plug and play installation and will come with 2 front-facing USB 3.0 ports. The ports will allow you to change your controllers or connect to other Xbox One accessories. The one downside is that it will only be available in white, which will clash with the new Xbox One X and the old Xbox One.

it will be hard to fill up the entire drive but you know some people will do their best to try. The Game Drive Hub will be available this month for $199.99, which is pretty reasonable for a drive of that size. Currently, I am using an old 500 GB external but after looking at this it might be time for an upgrade.
