For starters, Seagate explains that the Xbox Series X Storage Expansion cards, which will also work with the Xbox Series S, will have the same speeds as the internal console SSD. This means you can make use of the Quick Resume feature with games installed in the card.

It’s also easy to install as it works just like the memory cards of old. You just simply need to plug it into the port on the console and you’re good to go. There will be a notification on the console’s dashboard which will let you know that it’s ready for use. You can also freely swap between cards without the need to shut down the console.

This makes it even more convenient as you can easily bring your games with you since they will not be tied to a specific console. All you need to do is sign in to the Xbox Live account that the games are registered to, and you’re good to go.

As for alternative storage solutions, Seagate mentioned that you can use external HDDs / SSDs, but it’s not so much for Xbox Series X games. It will not have issues with Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the OG Xbox’s games however. The next gen games need to storage drives that are optimized for Xbox Velocity Architecture in order to run, so that’s something to keep in mind.
