I finally made the leap to game consoles and my choice was Xbox One. I love this thing. Forza, Star Wars Battlefront, beautiful graphics and awesome gameplay. I like the ability to integrate my cable into the gaming rig but have not taken advantage of that. I do stream games from the Xbox to my Windows 10 laptop and I also play some games via my laptop. Really love this capability as I can pop into games and keep an eye on my son as well as offer him hints when I am in another room and he tells me he is stuck. The Xbox has been a real treat.
I’ve managed to nearly fill up the 500GB disk in mine so I was searching for an external drive. While in a Gamestop store I asked the rep what I needed look for in a drive because I keep seeing the green Seagate drive and just could not believe that there was only one single drive model that was available and compatible with the Xbox One. I asked what other drives are compatible and I was told that Microsoft had a compatibility list up on their web site. WEll, after much searching I can confirm that there is no compatibility list maintained on Microsoft’s web site. My understanding is that all I need is:
Capacity > 256 GB
I’ll be buying something other then the Seagate Green drive and see how things go. I am going to guess that things will go just fine and my Xbox system will be happier with more internal real estate to store games and the like.
