The power of the current generation of consoles may not sound all that impressive, but it’s their SSDs. These super-fast internal storage devices shred game load times, provide seamless transitions between detailed open areas in games, and let you do things like hot swap between games.
Unfortunately, like any disc, they can only hold so much data before you have to delete and commit games to make room for new titles. Fortunately, you can buy extra external drives to expand your console’s storage capacity, but that’s the high-tech stuff they are. These SSDs are pricey.
Therefore, Xbox owners should not ignore this Seagate storage expansion card for the Xbox Series X|S. Normally over £250, it is currently down to £156.74.
That’s a UK deal, but check out the deals in your area below:

It’s easy to use up storage space on modern consoles like the PS5, especially considering how much space blockbuster games like Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 take up these days.
