Seagate’s 1 TB Game Drive for Xbox Series X and Series S is now available for preorder at Best Buy if you’ve already run out of storage somehow. It will cost $220.

According to the listing, the storage module will “instantly expand the peak speed capacity of the most-powerful gaming experience Xbox has ever created with the Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S. Effortlessly compatible with the Xbox Velocity Architecture, experience the fastest load times and most dynamic worlds – even improving the overall performance of thousands of Original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games. The ultimate power, speed, and compatibility is now at your fingertips.”

More to the point, the storage module contains a PCI Express Gen4 x2 (NVMe) Solid State Drive just like the internal drive in the new Xbox consoles, and it’s certified for storing and running next-generation Xbox Series S/X games.

External USB 3.0 storage can also be used, but Microsoft isn’t allowing gamers to run next-gen titles from those types of drives.
