Microsoft: External Storage Coming to Xbox One 'Soon'

April 4, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

External game storage support for the Xbox One is "coming soon," according to Microsoft's resident Xbox spokesperson Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb. Hryb confirmed the news in an Xbox One subreddit.

Responding to a question from a Reddit user about the topic, Hryb said that external game storage support is "coming soon" but that he needed to check on the status of media storage support. Hryb also said that he would share details on if there will be external storage limits.

Microsoft has long hinted that external storage would be supported at some point on Xbox One. While we do not have a definitive date for when it will happen, at least the company is still saying that it is coming at some point.

I'm sure this has nothing to do with hacker reports that they are close to being able to access the data, allowing people to be able to do it, for free, on their own.

So you can put anything on the HDD or is it just game caches,saves,saved video and such?


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

What I want to know is if the external storage will be proprietary or not. If I can take any USB hard drive I currently own, plug it in and go, then this is great news. If I have to buy an overpriced proprietary drive with a custom cable, then it is a no go. Not that I plan to ever own an XBone mind you.

Thats good because my XBONE internal drive is 75% full already with downloaded games.
