Seagate has taken the wraps off a new Xbox accessory that aims to improve load times while simultaneously delivering additional storage capacity.
The Seagate Game Drive for Xbox SSD is essentially just that – an external solid state drive designed specifically for Microsoft s Xbox console.
Tucked inside the brushed aluminum enclosure with familiar Xbox green accents is 512GB of flash storage which Seagate says should hold around 15 games and associated downloadable content with the average game taking up 35-50GB of space .
The drive utilizes a single USB cable for both connectivity and power.
Seagate says the drive helps gamers get into the action quicker by reducing wait times at welcome screens and enabling quicker transitions between levels.
The company didn t provide any hard numbers to back up the claims but I don t doubt for a minute that it s faster than what comes stock in Microsoft s console.
