The Xbox One has only been about since 2013 and console owners have already run into the issue of running out of hard drive space. This new generation of console gaming means every game you own has to be downloaded to your hard drive. Along with games, separate apps and save files for those games are filling up your console’s internal hard drive mighty fast. Western Digital realized how much of an issue this is for gamers, which is why they’ve created a godsend in the form of their My Passport X portable hard drive.
