Microsoft’s most affordable next-gen console, the Xbox Series S, comes equipped with a custom 512GB NVMe SSD, but it looks like you’ll only have 364GB of space for game storage.
We are just a few days away from the console’s launch date (November 10) and some people started receiving their Xbox early and along with it came the news of how little storage space we will have on the S Series.
User spead20 commented on Reddit about his lucky anticipated arrival of the Xbox Series S, though shortly afterward he noticed that the console actually only offers 364GB of space due to system reservations, such as the console’s OS.
This means that games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the upcoming CoD Cold War could occupy about half of the total space of the Xbox Series S. More specifically, the latest Activision title will occupy 136 GB on the two new consoles of Xbox.
Anyway, this news makes sense considering that the Xbox Series X uses only 800 GB for games, with 20% reserved for the OS. Also, there are no details yet on how it will work and how viable external storage will be with the high-bandwidth SSD present on both Xbox Series X and S.
The space of the Xbox Series S is enough for a Call of Duty and little else. Will external storage be viable?
