This new expansion card for Xbox comes in sizes of up to 1TB delivering the extra storage that you need to install the latest titles on your Xbox series X/S console. This expansion card enables you to play games directly from the card avoiding the requirements of transferring a game when using an alternative external storage drive. The drive itself features the rugged black WD_Black design and fits neatly into the storage expansion support with a plug-and-play installation.
