Fantom Drives will ensure you have enough space on your Xbox One for the upcoming games: Gears of War, Halo, Crackdown 3, Cyberpunk77, etc.
If you have an Xbox One, you know you have to have the entire game installed in order to play it. Which is annoying because what is the point of having the physical copy when it doesn’t even install faster than a download does… Anyway, this takes up a lot of space and limits the number of games you can access at a time. Which isn’t that big a deal, until you consider Games with Gold, Xbox Play Pass, and whatever games you are currently playing, that built-in 500gb or 1TB hard drive fills up quick. It’s not much of a problem deleting and re-installing games, but it greatly hinders replay value and returning to older games. For example, sometimes I want to replay Gears of War, but I deleted it to make room for another game. I’m likely not going to wait 30 minutes to reinstall it. It’s a rare situation, but there are many others like it that do come into play for many gamers. That’s where Fantom Drives comes in.
Fantom Drives has manufactured a full range of storage solutions for over 25 years. Now they are providing us with a 5TB plug-and-play option that will allow us to store up to 125 (50GB) games and easily transport and connect to multiple consoles. It’s simple to install and use and comes with a quick installation guide to get you set up within minutes. Here are some official specs and a word from Fantom Drives’ CEO, Hamid Khorsandi:
The Xbox One Hard Drive and Storage Hub includes:
- A single built-in high-quality Seagate Hard Drive in capacities ranging from 1-5 TB or a high-performance Firecuda Hybrid Solid State (SSHD) configuration of either 1 or 2 TBs drives.
- Easy snap on design to directly connect to the Xbox without the need for an external power supply or USB cables.
- Powerful yet efficient 2.5” drive technology that provides a smaller, quieter, and more durable system that runs cooler and more reliably.
- Three port USB 3.0 hub which can be used for additional storage (maximum 2 ports) or as a regular USB port expansion.
- Support for SuperSpeed data transfer rates of up to 5Gbps (USB 3.0) – backward compatible to USB 2.0/1.1.
- One-year limited Warranty. Xbox One not included.
“While the Xbox One comes in 500 GB or 1 TB storage configurations, the units are not expandable. Furthermore, some of that space is used for system files so users do not have access to the advertised capacity,” said Hamid Khorsandi, CEO of Fantom Drives. “We are providing a highly mobile storage drive for the Xbox One that is similar in design to the gaming system to complement the gamer’s investment. With Fantom Drives Xbox One Drive and Storage Hub, gamers receive the portability, capacity and performance they require at a very affordable price point.” [via Fantom Drives]
