Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One will not support external storage devices at launch.

All Xbox One units will be fitted with a 500 GB hard drive which can’t be replaced. Microsoft confirmed shortly after the console’s launch that to make up for this fact the console will allow users to connect external storage devices such as USBs and hard drives via USB 3.0 for save files and game installs.

However, now Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has revealed that this feature won’t be available when the console launches in November. “The future plan is for definitely to support external storage much like we do on the Xbox 360,” he said. “My understanding is that feature will not be there at launch because the team is working on some other things, but it definitely is on the list. I don’t know when it will come in though.”
