Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox Series X/S expandable storage is expensive....

 

Will you be buying this storage?

Yes 10 20.83%
 
No 38 79.17%
 
Total:48

Somebody will make an adapter.

I currently have 8tb on my Xbox One X in addition to the 1tb that came with the system. One TB on XSX is unacceptable.

Well a 2tb SSD is $350, so that's wasn't feasible. Sounds to me someone needs to clean up their drive or you need to buy HHD server to store some of your games.

I was thinking of buying one, but that is a bit much for me. I'm still running a launch Xbox One with its 500GB and while I do need to delete games, my internet is fast enough to download games with no problem. Indie games take up very little space, it is only the big AAA games where it is an issue. Luckily I don't play CoD.

I play CoD but only the campaign. Once on recruit, once on veteran. Then getting all the misc achievements and after 12-ish hours I can delete the game again.

I do the same for most games. I do keep Halo MCC installed, which is around 100GB. But other games I play through the campaign, maybe play a little multiplayer and remove them once I need the space.

Today Microsoft lost me as a customer.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

It's actually a really good price. The problem is people devaluing space. Not a single person who buys and Xbox actually needs that much storage, let alone SSD storage. I have yet to see a person who constantly switches between 20 big games. Large SSD storage is still very much premium, otherwise I would've switched to SSD for my long time storage a long time ago. My next high end gaming PC won't have more than 1TB for storage.

*Raises Hand*

I even had an external 2TB HDD connected to my Wii U because I easily get bored with a game and need to switch out out for another one. I'm juggling 2 128GB SD Cards on my Switch. I have an external 4 TB HDD to my Laptop for my games. Keep in mind I'm mostly playing indie Games which don't use that much space. I just need to switch games often, and to do so, I need enough space for all of them to fit.

So, while I won't buy an Xbox anytime soon (what's the point if you have a gaming PC?), having more space is always useful.

Also, I expect that games grow quite a bit over next gen. Bigger resolutions and bigger screens will also need bigger, more detailed textures, which certainly will bump up the space a notch or two. Add to that the Raytracing, and a 500GB SSD like in the Series S might fill up very quickly in a couple years

Try 230€ instead: https://www.alternate.de/ADATA/XPG-SX8200-Pro-2-TB-SSD/html/product/1558445?

Keep in mind that that SSD is faster than the one in the XSX...



Vita memory cards look cheap now. I miss $15 memory cards now.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Any word if the Xbox-SSD is TLC or QLC?
