Xbox Series S and X get new 512GB and 2TB storage expansion card options

Asia's Tech News Daily

Microsoft is announcing new storage expansion card options for the Xbox Series X / S today. Made by Seagate, there will now be a smaller 512GB card priced at $139.99 and a larger 2TB card priced at $399.99. These expandable storage cards slot into the rear of both the Xbox Series X / S to match the internal SSD speed and provide extra storage for games.

The first storage expansion card launched alongside the next-gen Xbox consoles, priced at $219.99 for 1TB of space. That pricing meant the $299 Xbox Series S jumped to nearly $520 if you wanted to add more storage and bring it up to 1.5TB overall. Now there are a variety of options for Xbox Series S owners who want to expand beyond the 512GB of space the console offers.

While the storage expansion cards certainly offer an ease of use on the Xbox, there’s still only a single manufacturer and they’re proprietary. Seagate’s 2TB model is priced lower than a top option like Samsung’s 980 Pro SSD for the PS5 (priced at $449.99), but Sony’s more open approach allows PS5 owners to purchase cheaper Gen 4 SSDs where you can pick up a 2TB drive for less than $300.

Microsoft has previously committed to opening up its storage expansion cards to more manufacturers and different size options. For now it’s sticking with Seagate, but we hope to see more manufacturers and pricing competition that will benefit Xbox owners soon.

The new 512GB Xbox storage expansion card will be available in mid-November from Walmart, with the 2TB option arriving in December.
