Currently, the only way to increase storage space on the Xbox Series X|S is to purchase a 1TB expansion card for £219.99. However, Xbox and Seagate are rolling out two new options for users to expand their storage.
The two new cards will add either 512GB of storage or a massive 2TB. Details aren’t available for pricing or release outside the US, but the 512GB version will cost £160 ($220) and release in mid-November. The 2TB card will cost £320 ($440) and will be available in early December.
These expansion cards are proprietary and are the only way to increase the console’s storage space. There are no details about read and write speeds, but they are the only option for running Xbox Series X|S games. Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games can be played from an external USB, but more up-to-date titles require an SSD.
