Western Digital WD_BLACK Drives Expand Digital Gaming Storage

The upcoming Western Digital Black hard drives and solid-state drives are perfect for gamers looking to expand their system’s digital storage. With some Xbox One games coming in at over 100GB in size, it doesn’t take long to fill that built-in drive.

Purpose-built for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, the five Western Digital Black drives offer industry-leading speeds and loads of space for dozens of games and saved gameplay footage. WD Black drives range from 2TB to 12TB and are available in Australia from October 1.

By teaming up with Microsoft, two of the drives include a few months worth of free access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – the Netflix of gaming which gives gamers a curated library of over 100 great games to discover on PC and Xbox One.
