Seagate expansion cards Coming Out Soon

Just over a month ago reports came out from Xbox Squad France and then Windows Central over new expansion cards for the Xbox Series X and Series S. Currently the only external storage that allows Series X/S games to be played is the 1TB Seagate expansion. This report said we could see a smaller 500 GB Seagate expansion. When you look at the storage on the Series S, it may be a practical decision.

However, the Seagate expansion comes at a price. It’s around £180 in the UK but launched at £220. That’s nearly the cost of the Series S itself. The US price is $220. The PlayStation expansion options are also similar price-wise. Meaning upgrading your storage to have games playable from them is not friendly on the wallet.

The storage options

PlayStation 5 supports different capacity sizes so 500 GB and going up to a massive 4 TB. Xbox has just the 1 TB Seagate Expansion. However, we now know this has changed with Xbox Wire confirming the existence of the rumored smaller capacity card. That comes with 512 GB costing around $139.99 in the US. Other regions are yet to confirm prices.

However, we have more than the smaller card. You can also get a 2 TB expansion card. This extra space comes with a price to match and will be available for $399.99 at launch. Once more no other regions have confirmed a price at the time of writing. Though as we know the 1 TB launched at $220/£220, these new cards could follow suit. The 512 GB according again to Xbox Wire is available to preorder now at Walmart launching in November. The 2 TB card is releasing in December with preorders going up in November.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you happy with the options for external support that is able to run Series X/S games? Or are you finding the price over your budget? Either way, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
