The WD Black P10 3TB portable hard drive is down to $89.99 at Best Buy.

The hard drive has a limited supply at this price, and you might have to do a curbside pickup if you want to pick it up at the store instead of wait on delivery.

A nice extra touch is this deal comes with two free months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Is your Xbox getting full from all the huge downloads you have to do just to play a single game? Some of these games can get as high as 80GB or more, and that means your built-in hard drive fills up pretty fast even if you got a 1TB console. So now you're in a position where you have to pick and choose just want you want to play. Older games you never finished go perpetually undone when you uninstall them. Smaller games you really wanted to play but couldn't find the time for now end up in permanent limbo.

Don't compromise anymore. Grab a hard drive with 3TB of space and you can install up to 100 more games without having to delete stuff. Plus, since the device is portable, you can take it with you anywhere you go. Show off some of your games to your friend by connecting the drive to his Xbox and playing there.

The drive uses a USB 3.2 Gen 1 interface. That makes it backwards compatible with USB 2.0 so you can connect to your computer, too, if you want. Plus, it has super fast data transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps.

  • I've got a 3TB ext drive for by XB1 and it's down to 1.8TB thnx to UGP. With that said, if I had to do it again, I'd get an SSD-based one because the larger games take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to load. If you get a non-SSD based external drive, move less used games to the external drive and install your more popular/larger games on the internal drive.
