Gamestop is offering some outstanding prices on a couple of Seagate external desktop hard drives. Ample storage space is one of the key necessities of your gaming platform of choice, whether it be your PS5 or Xbox Series X console or your gaming PC. SSDs might be speed kings, but they’re a lousy value when it comes to storage capacity. These Seagate drives provide lots of storage at an excellent price and look pretty sleek while they’re at it.
Seagate Firecuda 8TB RGB Gaming Hub
You’ll need a traditional hard drive instead of an SSD in order to get 8TB of storage for an affordable price, but you might as well get the fastest hard drive there is. The Seagate Firecuda 8TB Gaming Hub sports a USB 3.2 interface and a performance hard drive that spins at 7200RPM as well as fancy Razer Chroma-compatible RGB accent lighting. It also has USB 3.2 Type A and Type C ports as passthrough. It normally retails for over $200, but Gamestop has far and away the lowest price at only $138.99. Considering the fact that a regular ol’ non-RGB 8TB 7200RPM external hard drive usually costs more than this hard drive, you can see why this is a pretty sweet deal.
Seagate 8TB Game Drive Hub “for Xbox”
Let’s first make it clear that this hard drive is designed for the Xbox in terms of aesthetics only. The black and white color scheme matches well with the Xbox Series X and S consoles. There’s a standard, non-proprietary hard drive inside that can easily be formatted to be compatible with any platform that accepts USB, which is pretty much everything. The drive spins at 5400RPM, which doesn’t make it a speed demon, but that’s not very important when its main purpose is to back up large amounts of files and leave them there for long periods of time. It connects via USB 3.0 and has two additional USB 3.0 passthrough ports so you don’t sacrifice any ports. Gamestop has this drive for a mere $99.99, whereas everyone else has it for $180 or more. It’s obvious where to get this from.
