Xbox Series X 1TB Expansion Card Discounted In Early Black Friday Sale

[adinserter block=”1″]

One of the best deals from Prime Day Round 2 is back as part of Best Buy’s early Black Friday sale, and Amazon is matching the deal. The 1TB WD Black C50 Xbox storage expansion card is discounted to $120 at both Amazon and Best Buy. At Amazon, you’ll need to click the coupon box to get the discount. Meanwhile, Best Buy’s deal is exclusive to My Best Buy Plus/Total members until October 30.

If you want to increase your storage capacity of your Xbox Series X|S without making any concessions, you need an officially licensed, proprietary expansion card–the C50 is one of two that’ll do the trick.

WD Black C50 Xbox Series X|S Expansion Card

Normally priced at $150, WD Black’s C50 expansion card released earlier this year as the lone rival to Seagate’s expansion card that’s been around for years (though is also very rarely discounted).

This pure plug-and-play expansion card adds an impressive 1TB of extra storage to your Xbox Series X|S console, which in practice gives you more than three times the storage space on Series S and more than twice the space on Series X.

It’s worth mentioning the C50 is an officially licensed memory card as well, which means that the card leverages the Xbox Velocity Architecture and delivers performance that is indistinguishable from the Xbox Series X|S internal SSD.

The benefit of these dedicated expansion cards is that you can both store and run games directly from this little storage device. Without an expansion card, running out of storage space means either deleting games and downloading again later or transferring games to an external hard drive. But only Xbox One games can be played off of a portable drive; you cannot play Xbox Series X|S games not stored on your internal drive without a Western Digital or Seagate expansion card.

The C50 is also an attractive piece of portable technology, as this card features WD Black’s trademark industrial aesthetic. As mentioned, this is actually the second officially licensed expansion card for Xbox Series X|S cards, as Seagate launched its own version alongside the consoles when they were first made available in late 2020.
