The Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Xbox, the Microsoft-approved solid-state drive (SSD) for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, looks to have hit its lowest ever price in the U.S. The custom SSD cartridge is the only official storage expansion for the next-generation consoles, leveraging notoriously costly technology that usually retails for $220 in the U.S. This limited-time deal at Newegg cuts the price by 15%, providing a rare discount on this must-have Xbox accessory.

Microsoft's Xbox Series X|S consoles demand custom solid-state drive (SSD) storage with the Seagate Storage Expansion Card designed to hit the spec. This fun-sized cartridge exactly matches the internal NVMe SSD technology used inside the consoles, providing a seamless 1TB upgrade to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

Newegg currently has the Seagate Storage Expansion Card discounted to just $187, in a deal accessible using the promo code "EMCEUHX46" at checkout.

The Seagate Storage Expansion Card is the best SSD for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, hooking up through a dedicated port on the console's rear. While USB drives work on the new consoles, they're limited to playing backward compatible titles or storing new Xbox Series X|S games. You'll otherwise need to transfer those games onto the internal hard drive when played, with many titles mandating that internal SSD's speed to function.

While there are several ways to expand Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S storage, the Seagate Storage Expansion Card has proven the only hassle-free solution. The only major setback comes with that high retail price, with this deal from Newegg making that cost just a little more palatable.

  • May be in the minority, but I want 2 and 4TB options and other vendors. 1TB is not enough!
  • I hear you, but I also want 2TB for $200 and not 1 TB for that price. It will be a while though.
  • Has anyone been able to use this promo code? Newegg says the code cannot be applied to 3rd party sellers. Which the only one I can find is not fulfilled by Newegg.
