Xbox One Will Not Support External Drives At Launch

xbox-one-hands-on-review-10The Xbox 360 supports external hard drives, and the USB 3.0 ports on the back of the Xbox One has revealed that the new console would support external hard drives too, but unfortunately it seems that the feature will not be available at launch. Speaking at PAX Prime 2013, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb confirmed that the external hard drive feature would be introduced later.

In response to a question from the audience, “The future plan is for definitely to support external storage much like we do on the Xbox 360. My understanding is that feature will not be there at launch, because the team is working on some other things, but it definitely is on the list. I don’t know when it will come in though.”

The Xbox One will ship with a 500GB hard drive which is not removable which means that if a gamer required more space, an external hard drive would be required, although we have to wonder why this feature will not be available at the launch. While not a deal-breaker, it’s something worth taking into consideration if you’re planning on picking it up.
