Starting at $219.99US for a 1TB! Almost the same price as the Xbox Series S.

Good thing it's just an (expensive) optional choice or else it'll burn up in flames like the Vita lol

"You can continue to use your USB 3.1+ external hard drives on Xbox Series X & run Xbox One, 360 and OG Xbox games directly from the external USB HDD. Games optimized for Xbox Series X & Velocity Architecture need to be run from the internal SSD or the Expandable Storage Drive"

Well, "Crazy" expensive is not really what it is :)

SSD with that throughput today (I guess PCIe 4.0 only) is probably in that range... And this is a custom piece of hardware.
While not being cheap, this is not crazy expensive.

Just as a reference (PCIe 4.0 as it is probably the closest in term of performance):

No, 220$ is not crazy expensive at all... 

Ok i'll change it to not being 'crazy' expensive...but I find if a storage is almost the same price as a console...that's pretty expensive?

Also anything PC I can see as being expensive but consoles tend to be more on the consumer friendly side for cost.  But if people got money to burn then why not I guess
