Seagate 2TB Xbox Expansion Card Gets Big Discount

These expansion cards are a quick and easy way to upgrade your Xbox Series X|S storage capacity.


After a few generations without them, memory cards have made a big return in the last couple of years. Specifically, Xbox Series X|S plug-and-play expansion cards that give users an instant storage capacity upgrade. These were quite pricy at launch, but right now, you can get a nice discount on them through Amazon. For a quick upgrade, the 2TB Seagate expansion card is down from its standard price of $270 to $240 currently. Seagate's Xbox Series X|S expansion cards rarely--very rarely--receive discounts, so deals like this are worth keeping an eye open for.

As mentioned above, these expansion cards are very easy to use. Simply plug it into the dedicated port on your Xbox Series X|S console and you're good to go. Thanks to the Xbox Velocity architecture, you're getting the same lightning-fast speed as the internal SSD, so you won't need to sit through lengthy loading screens. At this size, you can also install quite a few games on it, including modern titles infamous for their high storage demands, like Call of Duty or Red Dead Redemption 2.

You also won't need to worry about sacrificing graphics, latency, load times, or frame rates on your favorite games and the Xbox Quick Resume function also works on these cards, allowing you to switch between multiple games almost instantly.

If you don't need that much extra space, you can also opt for a 1TB expansion card. Right now you can save $10 on one of these and grab it for $140.
