500gb hard drive? what a joke

#1razakyPosted 7/24/2014 10:46:14 PM
i just got an xbox one and i like it

except for 1 thing

this DOES NOT come with 500gb hard drive.

I have not installed anything and it says available space is 347gb

347gb??? then sell it by saying its a 350gb console

Lol, the drives are rounded off to 500GB and other things such as the OS reserves space on the drive. This applies for the 500GB PS4/ PS3 too and so on.

I understand that

my phone has 32gb and available is 24gb

losing 8gb is understandable

but losing 140gb right from the beginning? that's insane

It's misleading, no doubt. Wait until they start all the patches for stuff like battery indicators and other basic features that aren't there now. I feel like they should've given us at least a 2 TB hard drive.

That's actually close to the same percentages in your example. 25% for the phone and 28% for the xbox.

who cares external 1TB hard drives are cheap and xbox one is compatible with them. If they included 2TB the system would have been at least another $!-$200 more.

anal nitpicking aside, even IF it was 500gb, that would still be pathetic, especially for a device designed as digital only. It needs to be at LEAST a tb
