Hard Drives and Next-Gen Explained

If you're looking for hard drives that can be used on Xbox Series X and PS5 this Black Friday 2020, then you'll want to make sure you understand what the 'rules' are with the two powerful consoles.

First off, it's important to understand some key difference between HDDs and SSDs first! So let's quickly sum up.

HDDs are essentially 'older' hard drive tech, and SSDs are like the latest and greatest.

HDDs store data 'mechanically', SSDs store data digitally.

What that means is that SSDs are more efficient, much faster, and needed for basically all the features you'd expect from next-gen, such as fast loading speeds and so on.

PS5

HDDs are usable, but only for PS4 games.

SSDs can be used to expand storage, however, not all off the shelf SDDs will work with PS5.

PS5 has its own custom, super-fast SSD which has been designed specifically for playing PS5 games.

Xbox Series X

HDDs can be used on Xbox Series X to play Xbox 360 and Xbox One games.

They can also be used to store back-ups of Xbox Series X games. You can play these games only from the SSD.

There will be an official 'storage expansion card' SSD for the console, which will greatly increase its storage.

You should be able to store Xbox Series X games on this, as the card provides the same performance as the built-in SSD.
