Can't you buy a 1TB HDD and hook it up to your XB1? That's what I planner on doing. I read somewhere that this was doable.


you can, but I don't like the idea of my consoles looking like they're on life support. If you have seen the Sega Genesis 32x CD it looks pretty silly and I like the look of just the machine. My main issue with PS4 is that the USBs are on the front and it just looks ugly with cables sticking out of the front. Xbox One's side USB is still kinda annoying, but more reasonable (but it has 2 rear USBs, right?)
So glad the WiiU has 2 USBs on the back (and the front USBs are behind a door).

To use an external hard drive is needs to be USB 3.0 and (I'm probably wrong with this next part) externally powered and a minimum of 250GB with an upper limit of 8GB. Someone who is actually doing this could provide a better answer...


Are you serious? Lmao

That was too funny lol. As far as the requirements go a quick search for Xbox one external hard drive helped me decide on the u32 hard drive without having to worry about specific requirements. Though I wouldn't mind a little feedback from anyone actually using an external hard drive.

Considering you have to install these giant games on a Hard Drive to play them now, it's convenient to have your games on an external drive if you ever plan to take them to a friends house.

My best friend already has all my games though so I just delete stuff I am not playing.

yeah. The rest of the entertainment console has a pretty clean look since all of the cables are hidden in the back. With my PS4 I have some Turtle Beach PX3s so to use them I have to have this cable running out of the front.

Aside from that I like it. Well, I suppose another issue is that when I start the console up I'd like access to the library panel to be easier to get to. You have to get to the tab with the games and apps and scroll all the way to the right and then I have a nice page where I have a more manageable view of what is on my console (it's 3 columns instead of a single row).

I don't have issue with the controller battery life and a far as games go, even when PS3 and 360 were in their prime we got maybe 2 or 3 great games a year. There would be a lot of good games but not many great. I have no idea what people were expecting of PS4 and XB1. Sometimes it seems like the fanboys were expecting 2 or 3 amazing games a month and whatever game happens to come out on their console is the greatest game ever. Of all time.

Nintendo has some awesome games and a bunch of top notch third party exclusives. Too bad Nintendo doesn't have cool games or third party support.

Well its true. the things aren't even a year old and some Xbox Ones and WiiUs (it's almost 2) are hooked up to extra machines to help them function. That just looks sad. And my poor WiiU is gonna have a gamecube controller adapted hooked up to it :(

I also hate seeing external drives forking out of my consoles - one solution to hide them is to use a small 2.5 drive connected to a USB port on the back, and then have the HDD stuck on the back of your entertainment stand vertically with 3m adhesive.
