Xbox One external hard drive support coming ‘soon’, developer claims

An Xbox One developer has suggested that the Microsoft made console will add external hard drive support ‘soon’.

With the console currently lacking any external storage options, the anonymous developer has taken to reddit to tease the device’s upcoming features overhaul.

Based on a leaked picture of the Xbox One dashboard, the development unit can clearly be seen displaying a pop-up notification which reads “external drive ready.”

As well as this written alert, the console has also been shown boasting 585.9GB of free storage, up on the Xbox One’s internal limitations.

The image was joined by teasing messages from the developer who stated: “Adding more hype on eth list of things to come.”

They added: “I give you this… soon.”

A lack of external storage abilities was one element of the Xbox One which proved contentious with some gamers at launch.

However, with all current Xbox One consoles sporting 500GB internal hard drives, we can’t imagine there are too many gamers already struggling to capacity constraints.

Microsoft has yet to offer any formal insight as to when, or indeed if, the Xbox One will add external hard drive support.

Early this week the manufacturer announced that it would release a Kinect-free edition of the Xbox One, backtracking on its launch plans to only sell the console when bundled with the motion-tracking peripheral.
