Black Friday is here, and many deals are already lighting up across various online retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon. Among my top picks is a fantastic discount on a 2TB Seagate portable hard drive compatible with Xbox Series X|S, currently priced at just $74.99 on Best Buy. While it's not the lowest price ever, it's still a remarkable deal, especially considering it's cheaper than the 1TB version. That means you get double the storage space for less!
Seagate 2TB USB HDD Game Drive for Xbox:
was $92.49 now $74.99 at Best Buy
Thanks to this deal going on right now, the 2TB HDD for Xbox Series X|S is cheaper than the 1TB version. This device connects externally to your console to give you more space for your gaming files. It's an official accessory that's as simple to use as plugging it in. It's an ideal device for anyone wanting to play older Xbox games or archive modern games on the Series X or Series S.
✅Perfect for: Gamers for whom 1TB of storage just isn't enough (and that's most of us).
❌Avoid if: You want to play Xbox Series X|S games directly from the hard drive, as you'll need an internal SSD for that.

Why choose the Seagate HDD over other hard drives?
This officially licensed Xbox accessory easily connects to your console via a USB-A cable, so no need to open up your console. Adding extra storage to your Series X or Series S is a breeze, making it perfect for expanding your library of older Xbox games. Keep in mind that it won't run Series X|S games, but if you're looking to enjoy your classic Xbox titles on the latest consoles, this is the quick and simple solution you've been waiting for. You can also store your newer games on it and simply move across at will.
Considering the substantial space Xbox games occupy on Series X or Series S nowadays, opting for an internal storage expansion can be pricey. However, a simpler alternative is grabbing a reliable external game drive and plugging it in.
Seagate, renowned for its official Xbox accessories, ensures seamless compatibility with Microsoft's consoles. Also, with the current discount, the 2TB Seagate Game Drive proves more cost-effective than its 1TB counterpart, offering exceptional value. Just plug the device into your console using the included USB-A 3.2 cable, and voila, you have additional storage for your gaming needs. It's user-friendly, and the vibrant green lighting adds a playful touch to your gaming setup.
While various versions of the Seagate Game Drive USB HDD for Xbox, including 1TB, 4TB, 5TB, and 8TB options, exist, they are not currently part of the ongoing sale.

Had to create an account just for this nonsense. These types of things clogging my news feed and seen all over the internet are such a nuisance. Why would anyone buy a useless HDD for just under the price of a small SSD? What the writer didn’t mention is that this thing is literally just storage, if you have a series x game on it you will have to transfer it to the SSD to play it. Also it’s massive, i have a PS4 HDD i bought years ago thats at least 1/3 the size of this thing and it’s 4TB. Stop with this clickbait garbage.Reply
Well actually you went through a lot of effort for nothing then. Samsung will drive up the prices of SSDs again by 40% or so in the first quarter of 2024 alone. So MANY manufacturers will be effected by thid because they are supplied by Samsung. So it's logical even the ones that don't will ultimately follow suite. Soooo if that doesn't effect you then great keep buying it. For those that can't afford it these kinds of deals will be great. Look it up if you don't believe me should have been in you're feed a couple days ago especially if you are getting this. Also I forgot to add HDD aren't going anywhere as they are still leagues more reliable and durable then SSDsTm7 said:Had to create an account just for this nonsense.

Samsung is expected to put another strangle hold on the SSD market. They have told investors they intend to raise prices upwards of 40% in 2024. Samsung supplies many other manufacturers so expect this to have a Domino effect. If your still reading this GO BUY SSDs now as many and much as you can now before it's to late. I've grabbed 3 WD 4TB externals and another 10Gb worth of M.2s. I refuse to pay the prices of old. Also in reference to this article WD has some really fast HDDs to, my 5TB external never had write speed under a Gbps. Faster than my Seagate (also 5TB).Reply
