If you’re one of the gamers who can fill up your Xbox One’s hard drive just as quickly as you can empty your wallet for more games, your woes caused by only having a measly 500GB HDD may soon be remedied.
Following hot on the heels of the recent leak that Sony might be pushing out a 1TB hard drive PlayStation 4 model, Microsoft has responded (kind of) with a 1TB bundle of their own. Though still speculation, if a recently removed Amazon listing is to be believed, a 1TB Xbox One bundled with not only the (somewhat) new Xbox One controller which is sporting a 3.5mm headset port, but also a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection is going to be available soon.
Assuming that this bundle is an actual thing and not just wishful thinking, the page claimed this package would release on June 15, the very day of Microsoft’s E3 conference, for $400. If this information is correct, this bundle could very well have been their surprise “Guess what, it’s available NOW” item for the conference. A bit of an oopsie on someone’s part for letting this slip assuming that was the case.
I actually don’t think that most people need 1TB. I was all about getting a 1TB SSD when I first got my console, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that, assuming I delete games I’m not playing, I wasn’t near filling up my stock 500GB one. I suppose this option might be best for gamers who have a bit of a pack rat mentality and save every free and bought game alike on the drive. Let it go, folks. Also, I would be remiss not to say that I think this is a bit “catch-up-y,” if you will. Not the best look to constantly be getting there second when it comes to your top competitor.
