Microsoft’s Xbox Series X will come with 1TB of storage. It sounds like a lot, but you might be interested to learn that according to GameSpot who got their hands on the console, it seems that nearly 200GB of that 1TB of storage will be going towards the system files itself. This means that gamers are basically left with 800GB to install their games on.
So what does this mean for gamers? Is 800GB enough? It’s a bit hard to say, but generally speaking, a lot of modern games these days cross 100GB in terms of file size, which means that you could install a maximum of maybe 6-7 titles if you’re lucky. However, Microsoft did previously state that they are introducing technology in the Xbox Series X that will make games more storage-friendly, but we’ll have to wait and see how that translates to real-life usage.
If you’re the type that doesn’t keep their games around once you’re done with them, we suppose this isn’t really going to be an issue. However, for those who love storing their games, then this might prove problematic in the long-run. Thankfully, there are ways to expand the storage using expansion cards, but it will not come cheap.
So unless you’re willing to fork out the cash for an Xbox expansion card, maybe it might not be the worst idea to be a bit conservative with your game installs.
