2. Seagate Storage Expansion Card
Although it is great that next-generation consoles can support more demanding games, it is also a double-edged sword because the game files on the biggest AAA games are increasing the better they get. As a result, we're able to store fewer and fewer games on our Xbox consoles. Most of the time, all it takes is three or four games before your Xbox's storage is maxed out. This is particularly aggravating when you have to delete one game in order to download another. But don't worry, because there is a solution.
The Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox Series X|S grants an additional 512 GB, 1TB, or 2TB of storage space – you take your pick. With the 1 or 2 TB storage cards, you effectively double or triple the storage capacity of your Xbox Series X. And even more for the Xbox Series S. Evidently why it's one of the best Xbox accessories up for grabs. With a sleek design, simply plug the Seagate Storage card in the back of your Xbox Series X or S console and you'll barely notice it. What you will notice, however, is the additional storage space, which is more than welcomed.
