Both PS4 and Xbox One come with at least 500GB of storage, which seems colossal until one realizes each installed game typically takes up 40 to 50 gigabytes. Back in August 2015, hard drive maker Seagate released a 2TB external HDD specifically keyed to both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Today, they've unveiled a new version that bumps up the space to 8TB and promises to work with every version of Microsoft's current-gen console -- including the upcoming Scorpio.

The Game Drive Hub, as it's called, also has two front-facing USB 3.0 ports so folks can charge controllers or use other devices while it's plugged into the console. That's handy, since you'll likely be playing straight from the HDD. And with all the games you can download from Xbox's Netflix-style Game Pass subscription service, along with the slowly increasing catalogue of backwards-compatible titles, you'll probably need all the space you can get. Especially if Scorpio-enhanced games start taking up more storage. The Game Drive Hub retails for $200 and will go on sale later this month.
