Take it with a grain of salt.

The price seem to be on the high end side,$219 thats $80 dollars less than a series S and 1/3 the price of the serires X.

Last time MS had a proprietary drive was on 360 and was 20GB for $99 back then i could buy a 80GB one for that price.

Bit of a rip-off, as expected for a proprietary packaging. You can get a decent 1TB NVME M.2 drive for about $180 tops. Most are cheaper.

Cost of the 1tb custom ssd is already 70% of Series S. Better buy the diskless version of PS5 or just save up for the 1tb Series X.

Wonder how much the cost of the PS5 compatible ssd, don't think those 3rd party compatible parts is on the market yet.

Last month, I purchase my first ever 1TB NVME M.2 Samsung EVO for only $150 over at Micro Center and that was a great deal. Between using Reg SSD vs NVME M.2 is a huge difference. When it comes to brand like MS/Sony, they always overcharge their product and that XBX Seagate SSD is indeed a rip-off if this is true. Always trying to scam gamers when you can find a much better prices elsewhere.

There is one thing to notice here as well,while the one of series X is gen 4,it just 2 lanes which mean that speed wise is as fast as a 4 lane gen 3 NVme,those are like $108 not quite on the higher side.

Firstly, it’s a proprietary unit. Knowing that, Xbox absolutely will look to gouge users on extra storage. That’s videogames 101.

@2mrw: the PS5 solution is to approve a certain set of compatible drives and leave it up to you to purchase which one you want and stick it in. Sony, for now, isn’t making proprietary external SSDs for the PS5.

That's pretty expensive and a lot more than I was thinking it would be. Good thing i don't need a Series X or these memory cards. Maybe this is a placeholder price. I feel like there will be a lot of backlash at that price.

copy and paste back and forth is much quicker than to download the game off the internet every time.

i did like the idea of series x but at that cost im doing the same as pedro.

you can get a 4t for 100 bucks. why buy a 1t ssd for 219?

hdd was expensive back then. i think that was a great price considering the 360 launch hdd was

only 20 gigs. so your getting a 100 more than the one in there.

ps3 20 gigs as well unless you bought the 600 one you got 60.

Amazing how the majority of Xbox threads are by cows, and the majority of posts in said threads are cows, what a pathetic herd.

Haha sucks to be a PS5 fanny, being too scared to talk about the ugly under powered console is really taking it's toll.

Obviously no worthy launch games to talk about either. Sad gen to be a cow.

They have already said you can use a regular hard drive to store your games and swap them on the SSD. They have even said you can play last gen games and below off the hard drive, but you will not get the gain of the SSD.

That is an unreasonably practical thing to do. Most gamers here would be appalled by this behavior, good sir.

That's what you get when you create custom packaging for an SSD that you won't make in high volumes. 'Spensive.

Really tho.... How many games do you need installed at once? I don't think anyone really needs an extra terabyte.

It would be nice for console CDNs to make a generation leap in speeds as well. Switch protocols and go to P2P or something. Downloads from Sony, Xbox, and Nintendo are all horribly slow.

A proprietary SSD expansion device was always going to cost more than just a regular NVMe SSD.

That would be a ridiculous price for it.. but considering all those other retail "leaks" out there for the Series X over the past few weeks have been higher than what is announced, I would probably lean towards this being a placeholder price

That said, how many games do people have on their console at one time? I have I think 8 games and I play 2-3 on a regular basis.

Has to be a placeholder. Faster pc drives dont even cost that much.

I doubt it.

I think your looking at a $99-119 price for a 1TB drive. X1X's NVME is no better than my NVME which only cost me $110.... Take into account MS making large orders from Seagate I am certain we won't see anything above $150 for a 1TB drive.

Sony on the other hand... Ehhhhhhhh.

Costco had a 1TB SSD thingy, looks like an oversized flash drive, like $110-120, SanDisk brand, not Seagate. Curious if that will work.

So, proprietary language. Is the Seagate going to be only functional SSD expansion? Or just the one getting the official MS seal of approval like Seagate drives had for the USB 3.0 external HDDs?

$40... Lol.

Xbox branded external HARD DRIVES made by Seagate are being sold for $60 for 1TB.

Its going to cost $99 minimum for 1TB.

What could be nice though is an option for extra HDD to cycle games around with to utilize SSD but keep games on local storage to be called up easier than disc or download installation. It would be a much cheaper storage solution too. I mean, don't some PC setups already do this?

Pretty common for proprietary packaging for all companies. You always get kind of ripped off.

Anyway, I'll just buy a third party drive for the PS5 and Xbox SX since I'm not a brand elitist.

I missed a word. What I meant to write was that it sounds realistic for a proprietary drive to cost about $40 more than the standard off-the-shelf version.

If you can actually swap games that is what i would do,buy and cheap big usb drive and change games back and forward is better than throw money away on this expensive devices.

For real?

After the xbox 360 $100 20GB HDD?

I would not be surprise, no matter what MS will not get a better price that companies making millions and millions of NVME for multiple devices proprietary memory is always more expensive.

Sony will allow PC ones i can't even believe that you would actually defend a proprietary one from MS and cry about Sony who is letting the option open to get a PC one.

Your hate for sony is quite pathetic man.

Well it most be USB because the NVme one is proprietary on xbox,that means is only the one you can get,on PS5 we have to wait for the list sony will give about those that work.

There is absolutely no way this is true... If it is then they aren't going to sell like at all really. I would guess more $150 range. If it is $220 they are going to have to drop the price to get people to bite.

I bought 4TB HDD for $95. When the os is on an ssd games are faster on old hdd.
