Storage capacity is always a big talking point when it comes to next-generation video game consoles, and on the Xbox front, it's no different.

Internally, Microsoft's next-gen system is packing a 1TB SSD, but if you want to be able to play even more of its future line-up, it might be worth checking out the 1TB Seagate Storage Expansion Card. The official web page for this card is now live on the company's website and you can even sign-up to stay informed.

The page itself notes how there is "no compromise" - with this card giving the player all the speed and power of the Xbox Series X. It comes with a limited warranty of three years and will launch "Holiday 2020" alongside the console (there's no mention of price).

Syncing with the ultra-powerful Xbox Velocity Architecture’s groundbreaking hardware, CPU, and deep software integration, every game that plays from the Storage Expansion Drive Card for Xbox Series X plays at peak levels. In addition to Xbox Series X games, thousands of Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One titles will experience improved overall performance.

External USB drives will still be compatible with the Xbox Series X and can run Xbox One games and other backwards compatible titles, but there are limitations in place when it comes to Xbox Series X games, as previously explained by Major Nelson:

"You can always take your Xbox One games and play them directly off your external hard drive when connected to Xbox Series X. Now for Xbox Series X games, you can certainly store them on your external hard drive, but when you're ready to play them, you're going to want to move them to the internal SSD or the Seagate expansion drive."
