Xbox One owners have been enjoying the benefits of external hard drives for a few years now, unlike PS4 owners who only recently had the opportunity to beef up their storage. It was a good move by Microsoft in recognizing the need for more storage space early on. An Xbox One or Xbox One S with 500GB of space can fill up pretty quickly, considering games these days can easily consume 50GB. And that’s without all the post-release content. Even a 1TB storage won’t last very long.
