Xbox Series X/S 1TB Storage Expansion listed for £159

Pre-orders for Microsoft's Xbox Series X and S consoles are now open, allowing gamers to purchase next-generation Xbox systems. Alongside these pre-order listings, many retailers have listed the Xbox Series X/S' accessories, such as rechargeable battery packs for gamepads, audio headsets and more. 

In the UK, Smyths Toys has listed storage expansion cards for Microsoft's next-generation Xbox, revealing the pricing of additional Xbox storage. While this listing has been removed, its pricing has not been forgotten. As documented by Games Radar, an additional 1TB of Xbox Series X/S SSD storage will cost £159, assuming this listing is correct. 

For 1TB of custom NVMe storage, this pricing isn't horrendous. Unlike PC-grade M.2 NVMe storage solutions, Microsoft's expanded Xbox Storage cards only need to be plugged into the back of Microsoft's console, requiring no screws to be undone or any console disassembly. Remember that Xbox One and older titles can be installed on USB storage mediums, allowing legacy titles to be installed on affordable external HDDs at up to USB 3.2 speeds. 

With Microsoft's Xbox Series S console shipping with 512GB of storage for £249, users of this affordable next-generation system will likely need to invest in additional storage soon after launch, especially if they want to download a large number of Game Pass titles. If Microsoft's official storage drives cost £159, 1TB of additional Xbox Series X/S storage will cost more than 50% of the Xbox Series S' MSRP, and over a third of the Xbox Series X's asking price.

Price isn't that bad when you look at the price of similar PCIE Gen 4 M.2 SSDs in the 1TB capacity.

*Edit. The price is cheaper than an off the shelf one.Quote

It may be Gen 4 but remember it's just a normal Gen 3 speed rated drive. So it's not using the latest controllers and therefore cheaper.

There's no point in getting it. You mine as well spend the barely extra money for a Series X.Quote
