Xbox One contains non-replaceable hard drive
Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox One's internal hard drive will not be interchangeable; USB 3.0 allows for users to plug in external hard drives for additional storage.
The Xbox One console will contain a non-replaceable 500GB hard drive, Microsoft has confirmed in an interview with Engadget.
Microsoft's senior director of product planning, Albert Penello, confirmed that the console would contain an internal 500GB hard drive that cannot be upgraded.
By comparison, the Xbox 360 console offered hard drives with varying degrees of capacity and allowed users to replace the hard drive.
If users wish to expand the Xbox One's storage, a USB 3.0 port is available to plug in external hard drives. Penello confirmed the external hard drives could be used in the same fashion as internal storage, including abilities such as installing games and storing downloads.
