Following up on the 2 TB or 4 TB Game Drive for Xbox, Seagate is bringing yet another option to the table: an 8 TB Game Drive Hub for Xbox.

The company is launching the Game Drive series at an opportune time, just as Microsoft officially announced the Xbox Game Pass and Xbox One X, which was previously known as Project Scorpio.

At any rate, average gamers probably won't run out of storage space on their consoles with the 8 TB solution, and it'll arguably take some time before hard-core gamers will fill up the devices to their capacities, including the console's internal offering.

The 8 TB Game Drive Hub for Xbox is out to handle massive libraries of games without a headache, providing a plug-and-play setup that'll take just a few minutes. It connects via one of the USB 3.1 ports on the console.

More than that, it's fitted with two USB 3.0 ports on the front. That way, gamers won't lose a port plug in wired controllers or other Xbox accessories or charge controllers and even mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. The best part is, users can connect more Game Drives if 8 TB of additional storage isn't enough.

Will they do a normal 8TB drive for PCs that's a tenner less than the green version like their current game drive?

Rest of sale is utterly utterly terrible as usual.


Yep. Prices on PSN are often genuinely tempting. Xbox Store seems so measly.

God, look at the size of the thing. The USB ports are a good idea, but I'll stick with regular portable drives for now. I've got 6.5TB capacity, currently 50-55% full. Hopefully by the time I run out of space, 8TB portable drives will be common and affordable.

Yeah, I have a strong suspicion it'll be on GWG before the new one comes out, but for that price I can't say no.

A quick question (hopefully)

My brother gave me his Canadian Xbox One, and I live in Germany. I am aware of the difference in power but have seen some conflicting things online. Anyone have any experience using a US machine in Europe? A bit scared the power brick will blow if I just plug it in using a European plug adapter.

Do I need a European power supply?

Xbox At gamescom 2017

Here at Xbox, we’re still buzzing from our fans’ reaction to our news at E3 – from the unveiling of the Xbox One X to the 42 games shown on our stage. But we’re only just getting started. Today, we’re pleased to announce that in August we’re coming to Cologne, Germany for gamescom 2017. This will be the first time Xbox One X will be on the ground in Europe and we’ll have a huge line up of 27 playable games for the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PC from developers around the world, including Forza Motorsport 7, Age of Empires Definitive Edition and Sea of Thieves.

Here’s a rundown of what we’ll be up to throughout the week:

Xbox @ gamescom Live

Tune in on Sunday, August 20, at 9:00pm CEST, 12:00pm PDT to a special Xbox @ gamescom live show to get latest news and announcements on Xbox One X.


The show will be hosted by Graeme Boyd (aka @AceyBongos) and Xbox Germany’s Maxi Graeff (@GMaxee). They’ll have news to share, games to show off, will sit down to talk with developers from fan favorite studios and play some of the year’s hottest games yet to be released. There will even be a few surprises and giveaways along the way, so be sure to tune in on mixer.com or watch via the mixer app.

Age of Empires @ gamescom Live

On Monday, August 21, starting at 9:00pm CEST, 12:00pm PDT, Microsoft will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Age of Empires franchise with a special livestream event in Cologne, alongside some of our biggest fans. The livestream will celebrate the rich history of the beloved PC game series, as well as give fans a first-look at Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, the beautifully remastered edition of this bona fide classic we announced at E3 last month. We’ll be talking all things Age of Empires with some of the legendary developers who worked on the games as well as sharing some exciting news that fans will not want to miss – watch on mixer.com or through the mixer app.

We’ll share more details on how you can attend in person very soon.

Xbox FanFest @ gamescom

We will again be hosting an Xbox FanFest experience for our fans who are attending gamescom 2017. FanFest will begin on Tuesday, August 22nd. We will be sharing more details on our plans soon and look forward to seeing you there!

Xbox Booth @ gamescom

When gamescom officially opens at the Koelnmesse on Tuesday, August 22, gamers in Germany will be able to get hands on Xbox One X for the first time at the Xbox booth. We’re back in Hall 8 of the Koelnmesse, North entrance, this year and you won’t want to miss the opportunity to play a wide collection of the games coming to Xbox over the next 12 months. See below for the show opening times:

Tuesday, August 22 – 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. CEST (press/trade only day)
Wednesday, August 23 – 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. CEST
Thursday, August 24 – 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. CEST
Friday, August 25 – 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. CEST
Saturday, August 26 – 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. CEST
And throughout the week, we’ll be tweeting, live streaming and sharing news and content via social media – Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, Mixer, etc, most often using the hashtag #XboxGC. Whether in person or online, you won’t want to miss what we have in store this year!

Custom Gamerpics, Console Co-streaming, Arena Updates and More Roll Out to Xbox Fans Today

Fan feedback is an important part of how we’ve built Xbox over the years, and this month’s update, which we expect to roll out later today, is all about addressing feedback from the community:

Upload custom Gamerpics to your Xbox profile; choose how you want to express yourself.
Mixer Co-streaming is now on console, for everyone: With just a few clicks, you and up to three of your friends can stream together in a single broadcast. Plus, never miss your friends’ streams inside your Club and Arena Tournaments.
Sign-in to your Xbox One with just one press of the Xbox button on your controller. Now you can make your controller truly your own.
New user-generated tournaments for Killer Instinct on Xbox One means it’s never been easier to go to battle with your friends.
Xbox App on iOS and Android updates bring support for LFG Sharing, Game Pass Browsing, an updated Language/Location Setting and an Android-only feature supporting Messaging Chat Bubbles. Read more on these feature releases below:

Express yourself with custom Gamerpics, Club profile pics, and Club backgrounds
Starting this month, you’ll be able to upload an image from your console, Windows 10 PC, or mobile phone for your Gamerpic, or to customize your club’s profile pic or background. It’ll be available for everyone to see, so keep it clean – stick to the Xbox Live Code of Conduct.

Co-streaming comes to your Xbox One console, Mixer tab in Clubs
Co-streaming arrives on Xbox One! With co-streaming, you and up to three of your friends can broadcast together to create a shared, multi-view experience on Mixer. With co-streaming now on the console, you can invite others to co-stream and join a co-stream – entirely from your Xbox One. To invite another user to a co-stream, simply select ‘Invite to co-stream’ from their profile, or choose to invite your entire party to a co-stream. To accept, simply hold the Xbox button when you see the invite notification. At this point, if you’re not already broadcasting, simply pull up the broadcasting tab in the Guide while playing a game and select ‘Co-stream your game’ to start.

Speaking of streaming, it’s now easier to discover live broadcasts from Club members. From your Club home page, you will now see a ‘Mixer’ tab. Navigate there to get a list of any Club members actively broadcasting on Mixer.

Sign in seamlessly with your controller
Are there multiple people using your Xbox with multiple controllers? You can now link a specific controller to an Xbox profile for easy, automatic sign-in. Once linked, we’ll sign-in to your Xbox with that profile when that controller turns on, and you’ll be ready to play. Along with Xbox Design Lab and button mapping, this is another great way to personalize your controller. To enable this new sign-in feature, you must be using the specific controller you’d like to link and be signed in to the profile you would like to link. From there, go to Settings, choose “Sign-in, security & passkey” and select “This controller signs in.” Choose “Link controller” and your controller and profile are now linked.

My EU power brick arrives today so will fire up my new Xbox today (hopefully).

Any older must have games I should be looking at? I will most likely grab a copy of MCC at some point. I was tempted by AC:Syndicate as it's only 12 quid on Amazon but not sure about it.

It's £9.99 on CD Keys at the moment ( http://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/games/h ... n-xbox-one ) but it has dropped a lot cheaper than that in the past so you might want to hold on.

If you're after an Ass Creed Unity is on CDkeys for less that £2. It's nowhere near as broken as it was, either.
