Xbox One support for external storage is inching closer, with Microsoft spokesperson Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb saying that the much-requested feature will be "coming soon".
Writing on Reddit, Hryb said that the Xbox One would soon support the ability to keep games on external storage. He added that he would need to check about whether the console could also support media held on an external drive.
Hryb also added that he will confirm whether there will be a limit--such as how the Xbox 360 can't format a USB stick partition higher than 32GB--when there is more information.
The comments follow Microsoft saying in March that it was working on supporting external storage. Xbox One planning chief Albert Penello also recently said that Microsoft intends for external storage on the console to be "open".
The next Xbox One system update, due in April, will bring friend notifications back to the console.
