If you own an Xbox Series X, the only way to expand your storage is to pick up a Seagate SSD expansion card — because an ordinary external drive can’t handle Xbox Series X games. That can be an expansive option, with Seagate’s SSD card costing around half the price of the Series X.
But according to a new rumor, the cost of buying an expansion card may be about to drop. French website Xbox Squad claims that a 500GB Seagate expansion card is on the way. While this report was initially just an unverified rumor, one French retailer has since listed the 500GB card for €155 ($182) with a November 14 release date.
That’s noticeably cheaper than the $220 it costs to buy a 1TB Seagate expansion card. Not by much, if Microsoft sells the cards at the higher end of Xbox Squad’s estimate. But it would still lower the cost of expanding the Xbox Series X’s storage space.
