Western Digital Officially Announces Two New Xbox Expansion Cards

Late last week, a leak appeared to reveal the existence of two new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Expansion Cards from Western Digital, and now the company has confirmed they're the real deal.

As of today, you can purchase the 512GB Expansion Card for $79.99 / £89.99 and the 1TB Expansion Card for $149.99 / £149.99. Both also come with one month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate included.

The arrival of these two new Western Digital Xbox Expansion Cards marks the first time we've seen a manufacturer other than Seagate making them, and hopefully we'll continue to see more companies getting involved in the future.

If you don't quite understand what Xbox Expansion Cards are, they're used for adding extra storage on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles, and they boast the same speeds as the console's internal drive. The vast majority of games that are optimised for Xbox Series X|S require either the internal storage or one of these cards in order to run.
