When can we expect the one to get higher storage? I'm holding off for now because 500GB simply won't do.

Probably won't happen for a while, and with the upcoming external HDD storage, which is usable for games., I can't see them rushing

I actually think we'll see one holiday 2014, if they don't want to reduce the overall price of the XB1 to match the PS4 at $399, then you add value with a 1tb drive for $499, or come down a bit to $449 ($499 with a free game).

Good question. I just hope when, External HDD goes live, it supports 4TB drives. That should cover me for quite some time...

yes, most likely will happen. Expect it summer or early fall. So far the 500GB drive is fine, but needless to say it could have been larger.

It's just a shame you have to void the warranty to change the internal drive. I know someone who's upgraded the internal to a 2TB drive and everything has been great for him.

Any link on how to do that while voiding my warranty?

I assume you meant to ask "without voiding my warranty"? And if so, impossible.

 

You need to open the case / remove the holographic sticker. Then follow this

Why would you want to open the case up though? Knowing that you can attach any USB drive to the machine, you can add tons of storage w/o voiding a warranty.

That feature hasn't been enabled yet and it's more convenient/cheaper/usually better spec for $ for internal.

since when is it cheaper to get a large internal 2.5 drive over a 3.5 usb drive? you can get 3TB USB3 externals for around $99 all the time

And if it's anything like the Xbox 360 hdd support, you will able to plug and play your external HDD on the X1 to any X1. I love the portability. I can take games to friends and families on my HDD and not have to worry about lugging my console around or downloading everything onto their console.

Not always but if you shop around it's possible. Obviously not for 3 TB when those don't come in 2.5" flavour yet. Exts are less convenient as I said though.

Any performance gains to be had?

Can you install a SSD on the Xbox One?

 

If you plugged one in externally, would the USB 3.0 keep up with SSD speed?
