When Microsoft first released the Xbox One back in 2013, it opted to include 500GB of internal storage. If you were an early adopter or loaded up on the avalanche of new releases in the last six months, chances are you’re running out of space.

Microsoft has attempted to right this wrong by releasing new 1TB bundles, but who wants to go through the process of wiping, selling and setting up a new console? As digital downloads replace physical media, the need for more space is becoming paramount with each release. If you’ve been considering a 1TB upgrade, from a value perspective, it’s a better choice to opt for a 500GB model and supply your own additional storage.

Head below for a full guide on how to remedy this situation with an external hard drive  that will add enough space for up to 100 games.
