Xbox May Get a Cheaper 512GB Series X|S Expansion Card

Expandable storage options have been limited so far for new-gen consoles. While Sony's just implemented an option for internal SSD storage on PS5, Xbox initially teamed up with Seagate for a 1TB expansion card, but at an RRP of £219.99, it's not cheap.

Thankfully, there may be a cheaper alternative in the works for Xbox Series X|S owners. As reported by French publication Xbox Squad, a 512GB next-gen expansion card could be launching soon, reportedly costing between 149-169 Euros (roughly £127-144).

Xbox May Get a Cheaper 512GB Series X|S Expansion Card

According to the article, this rumoured card was listed on French retailer Micromania's website, listed specifically at €154.99 with a release date for November 14, 2021. Elsewhere, Windows Central reports a 500GB option appeared on wholesale retailer Innelec's internal systems, though they specified a lower price of 125 euros (£106).

With games facing increasing bloated sizes - Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War alone reaching 133GB/136GB on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S respectively - the 1TB internal SSDs just aren't enough for many players. Should this 512GB option become official, we'll keep you informed.
