To date, the only official expansion card option for Xbox Series X|S has been provided by Seagate, with its rather pricey $219.99 1TB expansion card and even pricier 2TB $400 option. But soon, it looks like there might be a slightly cheaper alternative on the cards (no pun intended).
Western Digital looks to be releasing a new 1TB Xbox Series X|S expansion card as part of its WD_Black range, according to a listing on North American retail site Best Buy, which has since been removed. It's the first alternative option that's been offered to Seagate's expansion cards, and the WD_Black 1TB Xbox Series X|S card apparently retails for $180.
Seagate also offers a smaller 512GB Xbox Series X|S expansion card for $179.99, but, with the WD_Black version offering double the storage for the same price, this could render the Seagate option somewhat redundant, even if it does look a bit sleeker than Western Digital's cards.
Both the Seagate and Western Digital cards allow you to add extra SSD storage to your Xbox Series X or S console, via the slots on the back, preserving features like faster loading times and Quick Resume, as opposed to conventional external storage, which doesn't support these options.
