Far too much, but I think we all guessed it would be.

Hopefully games don't get so big that we need one of these just to have a decent selection installed, but I'm not holding my breath.

Yikes.
Is it 2TB?



In Spain the price is 250€, not that it makes it that much better.

What is that price, just add 20€ and buy a Series S. 270€ is very overpriced, but there is always the option to just wait until prices come down a bit. It’s still good to have options though.

Seagate has a manufacturing license, because these SSDs are proprietary. MS has only licensed Seagate so far.
I was just asking if they are not planning more vendors, but I guess it stays the same.

The PS1 had system link where you could plug two consoles in to one another to play coop n shit.

Do modern day consoles do the same with ether net n wireless?
Yeah MS still has system link however you need two copies of the game, so it's pretty useless.

What a joke. Instead I could import a series S console from Amazon UK incl free postage for, at the time of writing €273 :messenger_hushed:

Ffffffffff----. I better keep on saving my MS reward points up. This time next year, I might have enough to knock half off that SSD price. 😕

Just bought a 5TB WD usb external from Bestbuy for $107.
It would take between 10 and 15 min to move a 100GB game over to the internal SSD.
I think my math is right. 125 meg per second.

Xbox Wire: Is my existing USB-based HDD/SSD with my library of games compatible with Series X|S?

Jason Ronald: Yes! It is easy as unplugging your existing external USB 3.1 HDD or SSD from your Xbox One and connecting it to your Xbox Series X | S and all your games are instantly available. You can continue to play your favorite Xbox One games, including backward-compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, directly from the external hard drive.

this I actually like a lot

Why does the price for this vary between different Euro countries? I thought the whole point of the Euro was the same price across countries?

Don't the consoles themselves cost the same in all Euro countries i.e. €299/€499?

We'll have "journalists" or "influencers" trying this out in weeks to come to prove if they've stuck with that or not.

Weird that you would assume MS would just go back on their word and lie, they’re not the company that’s been doing that these past few weeks

Saw this one coming. Proprietary storage gonna have people locked into this shit for the generation while the non proprietary drives for PS5 will come down in price pretty quickly. I do think the PS5 drives will be more expensive initially though.
Worth it for the convenience alone imo.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Somewhat confusing wording there, because I originally thought "oh well then this is kinda all for nothing".

You can store next-gen games on a USB 3.1 hard drive, but in order to actually play them you have to then copy the games from USB to the internal SSD or expansion card.

Yes, it can be used as storage for transfer.
