Many gamers know that all too familiar feeling of running out of space on their Xbox hard drive. Many gamers have specifically attached storage solutions to fix that issue and Seagate has just given them another option. The whopping 8TB Game Drive Hub for Xbox from Seagate should handle most gaming libraries. If the Game Drive Hub is still too small then perhaps buying two would be the answer. Seriously though, it doesn’t take long to fill up storage with today’s game file sizes. Some of these games can be upwards of 80GB and that’s already eating into a good portion of a 500GB or 1TB Xbox.
Not only that, once you have two or even three external hard drives attached, you’ll find that you have no spare USB ports. The Game Drive Hub fixes that by including two front facing USB 3.0 ports, so not only are you gaining extra storage space, you’re actually also gaining an extra USB port as well. As we found in our Seagate Game Drive for Xbox review, you might even get some minor performance gains, not to mention you can take it on the go with you to a friend’s house and plug in your game library on their Xbox One and play quickly without having to re-download your content.
Have you run into storage or lack of USB issues on your Xbox One? With an MSRP of $199.99USD do you think you’ll be picking up the Game Drive Hub for Xbox?
