Microsoft Confirms Xbox Series S Supports Storage Expansion Cards

You don’t need to be stuck with only 512GB of storage.

The Xbox Series S will arrive on November 10th and while that $299 price is compelling for a next-gen console, some of its specs are significantly lower than its big sibling, the Xbox Series X. One of the major differences is that it’ll have 512GB of storage instead of 1TB, but thankfully, you’ll be able to increase that using storage cards.

Microsoft has confirmed that, like the Series X, Series S will support the Seagate Storage Expansion Card. That will allow you to “add 1TB of additional storage with the full speed and performance of the Xbox Velocity Architecture,” according to Xbox Wire. 

That’s important, because unlike the Xbox One and PS4, you won’t be able to expand the console’s storage capacity by plugging any external drive into the USB port. The internal solid-state drive is very fast, and running games from an old hard drive you’ve had stashed away for years would seriously impact the console’s performance. 

So, if you’re worried your Series S will quickly run out of storage given the size of many games, it might come as some comfort to know you can expand that. However, we don’t yet know how expensive Seagate’s cards will be. Equivalent PC drives cost around $200, for what it’s worth.

Elsewhere, Microsoft said the Xbox Series S has a 4 teraflop GPU which delivers around three times the GPU performance of the Xbox One. That confirms long-standing rumors about the GPU, which is significantly less powerful than the 12.15 teraflop one in the Series X.
