Seagate is launching a new 512-gigabyte SDD drive for the Xbox One game console. The company’s emphasis will be on fast booting and loading.
Big hard drives and extra storage are a must for most hardcore players, as the average game takes up about 35 gigabytes of data. At that size, it doesn’t take long to fill up a hard drive.
The Seagate Game Drive for Xbox SSD uses flash storage to improve the gaming experience. Helping people get into the action quicker, the Seagate Game Drive reduces waiting at welcome screens and enables quicker transitions between levels in top titles like Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4.
With limited console internal drive capacity and game install sizes continuing to increase, players are looking for ways to expand storage. With 512GB of capacity, the Seagate Game Drive lets gamers store approximately 15 of their favorite titles and downloadable content. Individuals can archive less frequently played games on their console and keep a huge library of releases at their fingertips on the drive.
Seagate Game Drive features easy setup and installation. The sleek and stylish aluminum enclosure also complements the Xbox ecosystem. It doesn’t need a power cable, and its compact size makes it perfect for bringing to a friend’s house. Seagate previously launched a 2-terabyte and 4-terabyte external hard drive for the Xbox One in 2015.
The Seagate Game Drive for Xbox SSD will sell for $200, and it will be available in November at Amazon, GameStop, and other consumer-electronics retailers.
