While the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S require a special expansion card to store optimized games, anything that was built for the first three generations of Xbox consoles only can play on both new consoles as well as the Xbox One from an external HDD or SSD.

Seagate has been a close partner of Xbox and the company's Game Drive products built for Xbox One are seeing some nice discounts for Black Friday. So now is a perfect time to stock up on extra storage ahead of the holidays.

Seagate Game Drive for Xbox | From $70 at Amazon

A combination of HDDs and SSDs from Seagate offered in partnership with Microsoft are a perfect way to expand your console storage, with the added bonus on some of free Game Pass subscription time to help you fill them up!

Various products in the Game Drive family are discounted this Black Friday at Amazon:

All of these are certified for Xbox use and make a great backup for the new consoles or just expanded storage to play previous generation games from.

If you get one of the Game Pass editions you'll also get either one or two months of Xbox Game Pass for console included free of charge, which included access to the ever increasing library of games to play and fill your new drives with.
