    about £180 for an external Seagate 8TB drive on Amazon at the moment, but it's not white... Would be more likely to buy one of these for my Xbox One S if it did not require an external power brick...

    USB Type C all the external Hard drives now!!!!
    Why is this taking so long? I hate the idea of having/having to carry a power brick with an external HDD.

    The Xbox One only has USB type A ports, so lacks the means to power this drive, even if the drive side was Type C

    To be fair "not as fast as an ssd" is a criticism of any spiny disk drive
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    Re: Seagate 8TB Game Drive Hub for Xbox

    No one has questioned why 8TB is needed on Xbox? My 500 or so game library across Steam, Origin etc probably wouldn't fill this.

    In fact my entire Steam library is apparently around 2TB according to mysteamgauge. But not sure how accurate it is. Still nowhere near 8TB.

    USB C is a year or so away from mainstream. If ever as something new will probably appear soon.

    At around 50G per modern game, the built-in drive fills pretty quickly

    Simply don't have a spare plug socket* for one of these, so until they sort themselves out, it's a 4TB USB powered drive.

    *TV, VM Box, 8 port switch, Sonos Play 3, Xbox 1 S, PS4 Pro, Shield TV and a PC across two wall sockets and a multitap.
