Thread title says quite a different thing, "Xbox One has non-replaceable hard drive, external storage is supported"


http://www.geek.com/games/xbox-one-external-usb-storage-support-wont-be-ready-at-launch-1569318/

It will have external hdd support, just not at launch.

Yes, exactly what I wrote.

Unless you plan to fill up your 500gb the first 10 seconds of getting your console, this is a non-issue.

Considering they were touting the console as digital only (i.e all content was installed on disk) then 500gb is nothing these days.

My bigger concern though is that the internal HDD is non-replacable. So what happens if you have a faulty hard disk and it dies... your console is effectively dead. You cant swap it out... you have to send it back to maintenance or risk taking it apart yourself. For me this is the biggest issue... you can have a dead machine for a part that can be easily replaced.... totally bad design.


That doesn't matter, You would have to go out of your way to fill up 500gb in such a short amount of time.

I do agree that an external HDD goes against the "One box to rule them all" mantra but for what you need the 500gb for, this is not a big deal.

All One games will require a mandatory install, last time I checked. Since this is blu-ray we're talking now, many of them will likely be 20+GB so it won't take that long to fill. Also, if they really want to sell this to you as a media center, they need to support external harddrives for movies/TV shows.


I thought they changed that mandatory install lark saying games can be played off the disc?

Also, even at 20gb per disc (which I think is an over estimate but there we are) that's still about 25 games. I doubt you'll be playing 25 games at the same time.

I know the One allows you to swap between more than 2 things at a time but not 25 games.

500gb is fine

500gb should definitely be enough, at least until support for external storage is added.

It will be patched.... obviously.

But why do people store all their media content on their consoles anyway. My console will be for games and games only. 500GB its enough for games for a while to come and when external drives are enable then I MAY get a larger external drive. These things can stream content you know... it doesn't need to be stored on the thing.

I have a 2TB media server for all other stuff, including photos, music and movies.

I am not the norm, but what with way over 100 games +digital games + save files, 500gb is not enough for my games :)  - it's a pain to delete games to put others on. This will only get worse as more games take 20-30GB of space.

I dont store media stuff on the console, i store that on a SAN disk... otherwise things would get very messy :D - but i am sure some people would do that.

Really?

It takes about 5 seconds.  Literally.

It depends on how fast people can start playing a game while installing. If you can get into a game relatively quickly while the game continues to install, then it shouldn't be too much of a problem deleting content to make room for new ones. I do think that it is great that Sony allows you to install your own hard drive if you want though.

Both MS and Sony have highlighted how they want you to be able to do what you want immediately. This isn't consistent with that idea.


Even still, 5 seconds is not the end of the world.

It takes more than 5 seconds to install games on the PS3 :) - in fact some games can take 20-30 minutes. You don't want to do that all the time trust me :)

Considering this will be next gen, did it occur to anyone that those numbers won't remain the same?
