Seagate, the America data storage company, at E3 2018 unveiled the new SSD for Xbox One consoles. If you own hundreds of digital games on your Xbox One, Seagate’s external drive is essential for you. Seagate already has a line of hard drives designed for Xbox on the market, and the company has unveiled a new range of game drives for Xbox.

At E3 2018, Seagate announced a brand new SSD that’s been designed exclusively for Xbox One. The SSD is available in 2TB, 1TB and 500GB storage. You’ll be able to store up to 500 games in 2TB Seagate Game Drive for Xbox One, including the achievements and other data.

Seagate has also improved the read and write speeds, and of course, the performance is better than the standard drive since it’s designed for a gaming console. You will not notice any lags or crashes while playing the games stored on the external hard drive. It feels as if your games are playing from the internal hard drive itself, thanks to the improved read and write speeds.

The game drive costs a bit more than the standard hard drive, but it’s not surprising given that Seagate’s SSD for Xbox One will offer an unbeatable performance.

Pricing and availability

Seagate plans to launch the new range of SSD for Xbox One in the US, later this summer. The 2TB variant is priced at $600, the 1TB and 500GB storage variants will cost $300 and $150 respectively.

Microsoft at E3 2018

E3 2018 is going particularly busy for Microsoft, as the company will be expanding the first-party development again. Microsoft’s briefing at E3 2018 is going to be as frantic as ever.

You can expect an episode of Inside Xbox from the show floor, Xbox experience at Microsoft Theater, and new games.

You’ll be able to watch the Xbox E3 2018 briefing on Sunday, June 10.

“During the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing, you’ll have a chance to check out everything from in-depth looks at previously-announced games to trailers for our unannounced titles coming in 2018 and beyond,” the company said.

It sounds like Microsoft will be bringing a lot of stuff to E3 2018, and we may learn more about the company’s future plans for its gaming business at this year’s E3.

        Oh, ok. Cause you wrote it like they never had an SSD specifically designed for Xbox One.

    The only one to get is the 2TB otherwise it’s pointless to even have an external drive and at $600 you can get a PS4 and Xbox One console.

    Let me get this straight… at $600, The technology packed in this 2TB SSD HD is more than that of XBOX one X or PS4 Pro… Who knew?
