Microsoft has revealed the price of the expandable storage card for its upcoming Xbox Series X and Series S next-gen consoles. The storage cards are 1 TB and are expected to cost $220 USD according to a Best Buy listing.

The Xbox Series X already has a built-in 1TB SSD storage while the Series S possesses a 512GB of SSD storage, although Microsoft has yet to say how much of the built-in storage is reserved for its operating system. Next-gen games will run off an SSD from either the console or an expandable storage card in order to load games faster. The SSD can also be used as a USD hard drive in order to play Xbox One, Xbox 360, and original Xbox games on the next-gen system. However, moving those titles to an SSD will drastically improve its loading time.

The PlayStation 5 will also upgrade its own 825GB internal SSD storage in a similar way. Sony has yet to announce any details on the topic but has confirmed it will support SSD drives from other manufactures, unlike Microsoft.
