With game sizes increasing and more Xbox Series X|S titles arriving on the market, storage is almost becoming a necessity. Unfortunately, the options available at present are fairly expensive, with Seagate SSD cards reaching upwards of £200+. That being said, a new report has surfaced suggesting a new SSD adapter could be used, potentially saving you money in the long run.
According to Hermitage Akihabara (thanks, Tom's Hardware), a Chinese company has launched the Sintech DIY CFexpress Card PA-CFEM2-C conversion adapter, which is said to allow users the ability to install specific M.2-2230 SSDs into the Xbox Series X|S's expansion slots.
It's currently available for $35.99, and the listing even states it is for use with the 2230 M.2 nVME SSD on Xbox. This means not any old SSD can be slotted in, due to the Xbox's architecture only supporting certain builds, so you would need to use something such as Western Digital's WD Blue CH SN530, claims Tom's Hardware.
If you can manage to find the suitable parts to make it work, you could make a huge saving, but of course this isn't an Xbox licensed product, so you run the risk of encountering issues. It's been reported that an alternative storage option could be arriving later this year in the form of the Seagate 512GB Storage Expansion Card. While it's not confirmed, it's looking very likely and is worth holding off to see if it comes to fruition.
