Microsoft Xbox Storage Expansion Card rumored to increase the overall cost of the consoles

After months of speculations, Microsoft finally unveiled withs Xbox Series X and Series S console in their full glory. The next-gen consoles will release on November 10.

Series X is priced at $499 and its counterpart the Series S will be priced at $299. This aggressive pricing shown by Microsoft has positioned the company is a more secure spot against its market rival Sony.

The next-gen console’s pack a variety of latest generation hardware. The hot topic, however, is that the consoles will come with a powerful NVMe SSD solution.

The speed of this SSD is up to 2.4 GB/s and will increase the performance of the new consoles by 40 times over the previous Xbox One family. The SSD is a key component of the console’s latest “Xbox Velocity Architecture”.

Xbox Series X will pack a 1TB SSD and Xbox Series S will come with 500GB SSD. This SSD is crucial to the console’s performance and the only to expand the memory on these consoles is to use Microsofts very own Xbox Storage Expansion Card.

It is a proprietary 1TB NVMe SSD drive, which exactly matched the internal storage of the next-gen consoles.

The latest scoop however is that a retailer accidentally revealed the price details of the SSD expansion for the next Xbox Consoles. The rumored price is said to be around $220.

But these are just rumors!

The price seems not much if considered that the expansion is proprietary from Microsoft.

However, it is worth remembering that Xbox Series S will have only 512SB SSD and the expanded storage is a necessity for the console. Microsoft cannot give more discounts on the SSD expansion slot. Since it may result in losses for the company.

The disadvantage now seems that sony’s PlayStation 5 accepts M.2 2280 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD’s as long as they meet the minimum requirements. This gives users a cheaper option to upgrade their console storage.

If the price leak is true then gamer will have a hard deciding between the two rival consoles as budget is also a thing in the corona-apocalyptic world.
