Xbox One Hard Drive Capped at 362 GB?

December 11, 2013 by

Remember when Microsoft said the Xbox One would have 500 GB of storage space? Think again.

Today, IGN reported that their first Xbox One unit was unable to download a 3 GB update after they had around 362 GB of space filled with games and apps.

If this is the case with all units, then it could lead to some serious issues. Firstly, the replacement of the internal HDD would void the warranty. This could be a risky move, because of the relatively new and untested hardware. Cloud based streaming of games has neither been implemented or confirmed, and external HDDs, while support has been announced, the exact date of implementation for this feature is unknown. Do know that all save data, and rights to digital games is bound to the account, so you don’t have to worry about that. Nevertheless, nearly 150 GB is being filled with something else(OS, preloaded applications, Kinect software, etc.) or is simply blocked off, what do you think it could be?

Do you feel cheated by this blatant misrepresentation? Let us know in the comments below!
