Following a leak on October 4, we anticipated that Microsoft would soon unveil the new 512GB SSD, a reduced-priced memory card compatible with Xbox Series X / S.
Yesterday, October 21, Seagate’s announcement finally arrived, with the 512GB card and a second 2TB SSD unveiled to the public and available in the US between November and December 2021.
The two new memory cards represent an alternative to the classic 1 TB one, announced shortly before the launch of the two consoles and offered at the introductory price of $ 219.99 / € 259.99. To use them, insert them into the door visible on the back of the two hardware, and use them as a simple additional space to store game data, video clips, or others.
The 512GB card is offered at an introductory price of $ 139.99 and is available for preorder right now in the US, with a release scheduled for mid-November. The 2TB card, on the other hand, will be available for preorder starting in mid-November at the introductory price of $ 399.99 and will ship in early December.
