$22 off.  Still too expensive for me, but if you need/want it now. :)

The price is high but perhaps more importantly, the Xbox has only one expansion slot. When the inevitable 2 TB card comes out, it will be a sad day for those that plunked down the big bucks for this one and still want more space.

Good point on that 2tb expansion but I myself think this is currently expensive

Has this been announced or is it just expected?  That sucker will be expensive...

Just speculation by me.

My speculation is that MS will have a 2tb Series X and charge the same price ($499) after the current version runs out, instead of doing a price drop.

So far I’ve been doing fine with using my external hard drives from last gen. Just keep the new stuff on the console storage and if I really want a last gen game I’ll put it on the internal ssd and delete when I beat it.

Waaaayyyy to expensive for external ssd’s and I feel they will be that way this entire console generation.

Eww...reminds me of the PSP and Vita proprietor memory cards.  Sure, you can just keep using the internal storage for playing Series games and just delete them when you're not playing.

I own one and I am positive I will eventually want more. These should be plug and play though, so I don't see the problem with swapping them out. I imagine I will eventually organize my next-gen game library this way. Beats copying back and forth from a usb 3.0.

My thoughts exactly. You know when they do the 2TB one they’ll price it at $200-250. This one would likely get discontinued. That being said this card is only worth $150 for me. If it drops that low I’ll buy one for my xbsx. Modern systems only hold like 5-10 games. Only bad thing about current gen. Otherwise love it.

I'm fairly certain that XSX enhanced games can't run off external SSDs because the USB transfer speed isn't high enough.

Oof with one slot no easy way to transfer the contents of the current 1TB card to a new replacement (hypothetical) larger size card.

It is an official accessory though so you could trade it towards a larger size from GameStop or wherever as long as you have an external to temporarily move everything to.

Not every Optimized game needs to be on the internal or Seagate drive to work. You just won't get the faster loading benefits.

You just copy all the data to a normal external usb 3.0 drive, then to your new expansion card.  Works fine.

I'm going to play the long game on this and wait for a $100 deal. Hopefully Black Friday in a year or two will do it.

I have to wonder how long before CoD sales are impacted because they simply don't fit on current gen consoles. Really poor planning all around when you consider the backup plan is $220 to play one game.

The difference is that this price is actually in line with what SSDs of this speed cost. It has nothing to do with proprietary format.

 

Also, you can plug in any external drive for storage purposes and just transfer things back and forth from the internal SSD and your external hard drive.

 

Meanwhile on PS5, you can't expand storage at all right now -- which is much more ridiculous.
