    XboxOne Xbox One external storage will support up to two USB 3.0 drives

According to the Major, your Xbox One will work with both USB-powered drives and drives that require their own power source. "I am using a bus powered drive with no issues," he told fans on one Reddit thread. The drive in question, which Major also posted a link to, is a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. He also says that it doesn't matter what format your drive is originally: "When you plug your drive in the first time, the console prepares it for use for storage.

    Aren't these shipped with 500gb, what do you guys plan to use extra storage for - do these make awesome media players or something?

    There's certainly not enough good games to fill one up

    It's going to be a godsend once the games start really coming out. Ran out of space well before Wolfenstein so the two drives i have attached now are going to get used a lot, no problems so far from streaming games from the drives so looking good.
