Microsoft’s Xbox does not feature support for upgrades to its internal storage capacity the way its competitor in the PlayStation offers. While being a clear disadvantage for the consumer, it is not something that cannot be worked around. Even though users cannot physically install new storage into the machine, they can opt for extra memory in the form of a flash drive as Microsoft allows memory upgrades through external flash drives.

In this article, we will be taking a look at the Game Drive, the latest memory enhancer from Seagate. Seagate’s Game Drive is an external SSD that works for Microsoft’s Xbox One and promises to improve loading times in consuming games, making it overall a good purchase if you consider how important smooth transitions are to gaming.

The Game Drive comes with 512 GB of storage, meaning that users can store quite a bit of content on it, including over a dozen games and some other media on top of that. With the games being released becoming heavier, Seagate’s storage flash drive pops up at a most opportune moment. That’s how Seagate is advertising their flash drive storage device to Xbox consumers.

With a $200 price tag, the Seagate Game Drive does not offer any kind of special features that would differentiate it from other similar SATA drives. Just like other products, the Game Drive can be reformatted to work on Windows and Linux as well. Seagate’s device does come however with a very nice design and color scheme.

The Seagate Game Drive will become available starting in the month of November, and can be acquired from trusty retailers such as GameStop or Amazon.
