Xbox One’s 500GB hard drive cannot be replaced by users, Microsoft has confirmed. However, if you want additional storage, the console will accept third-party USB 3.0 devices.

Engadget reports that Xbox One hard drives are ‘non-user-serviceable’, and Microsoft’s senior director of product planning Albert Penello added that USB 3.0 devices can be used for everything – including game installations and other storage.
