The Xbox One console will contain a non-replaceable 500GB hard drive, Microsoft has confirmed in an interview with Engadget.
Microsoft’s senior director of product planning, Albert Penello, confirmed that the console would contain an internal 500GB hard drive that cannot be upgraded.
By comparison, the Xbox 360 console offered hard drives with varying degrees of capacity and allowed users to replace the hard drive.
If users wish to expand the Xbox One’s storage, a USB 3.0 port is available to plug-in external hard drives. Penello confirmed the external hard drives could be used in the same fashion as internal storage, including abiltiies such as installing games and storing downloads.
