An Xbox One problem that’s likely annoying hardcore gamers may “soon” be fixed, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb revealed on Reddit, as the company will soon bring external game storage support to the console allowing users to install and play games on external hard drives. However, it’s not yet clear whether those external drives will be able to offer more storage space than the 500GB available by default on the Xbox One. Hryb apparently doesn’t know yet whether there will be any limitation when it comes to external media storage support, but the exec will share information once it becomes available.
Last May, Microsoft senior director of product planning Albert Penello said the Xbox One’s USB 3.0 ports can be used for external hard drives, Polygon reports, saying that the internal drive of the console can’t be removed or serviced by the user. Comparatively, PlayStation 4 users won’t be able to add external drives to their console, but they’ll be able to replace the drive the PS4 ships with.
Interestingly, Hryb also hinted that more Xbox One features are in the making, without revealing what they are.
“Lot’s of good work going on to make the console even better — some you’ll see soon, some will show up later. But: it is all good stuff,” he said on Reddit.Tags:Microsoft, Xbox OneVia:PolygonSource:Reddit Previous ArticlePreviousGraphene could be the key to Samsung's future TrendingU.S. wireless carriers finally have something to fear: GoogleHTC One (M8) vs. Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5s: Guess which phone survives a 7-foot dropNew tech could put an end to overcrowded public Wi-Fi hotspotsVideo: The Xbox One has a big ace up its sleeve to help it win the console warWhat might be 2014′s best Android phone has leaked in new photosThe Xbox One will soon add a key feature gamers have been clamoring forRelated ArticlesVideo: The Xbox One has a big ace up its sleeve to help it win the console warVideo: Microsoft shows how insanely fast you can type with new Windows Phone WordFlow tech5-year-old discovers huge Xbox One security vulnerabilityStrange days: Microsoft has become an 'underdog'This is Microsoft's ingenious plan to reel in more customers
