Microsoft has released the price of Xbox Series X 1TB Expansion Game Drive. It is now up for pre-order at Best Buy with a price tag of $220.
Earlier this week, we reported on the pricing for this upcoming storage card device for the Xbox Series X, which was reportedly a mistake from SmythsToysUK and they quickly retracted it. The price at that time was listed as £159.99 which converted to $205. There was also a rumor earlier this year that listed the price of the expansion at $220.
It turns out, the pricing of this expansion drive is closer to the rumor. It is now confirmed to be $220 and can be pre-ordered through Best Buy.
Here is a description of the product taken from Best Buy.
