Earlier today, Microsoft officially launched its Xbox Game Pass service for all users. If you aren’t familiar, please know that it is essentially an all-you-can-eat-styled video game service. For a mere $9.99 per month, you can download and play 100+ Xbox One and 360 titles. It is insanely cool and a great value.
The problem? The games you download will take up a lot of space on your Xbox One’s internal hard drive. Luckily, Microsoft makes it easy to expand the console’s storage capacity — just plug in a USB HDD or SSD. Today, Seagate announces an external mechanical hard drive that is designed for the console. The Game Drive for Xbox Game Pass Special Edition, as it is insanely called, can be had in either 2TB or 4TB. To sweeten the deal, you will get a complimentary Game Pass subscription!
“Today Seagate is unveiling its latest storage solution designed exclusively for Xbox, the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox Game Pass Special Edition, giving gamers up to 4TB of much needed extra storage space for their current library and games from the Xbox Game Pass catalog. The white finish complements the Xbox One perfectly. As an added bonus, the new Seagate Game Drive for Xbox includes a one-month (2TB version) or two-month (4TB version) Xbox Game Pass membership, ” says Seagate.

The storage company further explains, “Super compact and designed for Xbox, gamers can take their favorite games and the hottest titles from the Xbox Game Pass catalog along with them — wherever. Simply unplug the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox and take an entire game library to a friend’s house. It’s small enough to slip into a backpack and doesn’t need a separate power cord, so users can play their own games anywhere.”
If you are interested in buying this drive, it can be had later this month — an exact date is not known. The 2TB model will cost $89.99 and the 4TB model will be $129.99. If you aren’t sure which capacity to get, the latter is clearly the better value. Keep in mind, it will also work on your PC — you can format it for Windows 10, macOS, or Linux.
