Best Buy may have given away plans to sell a 1TB Xbox Series X expansion card for about £75 less than they are currently being sold for.

become video games increasingly expensive means many consumers need to be more selective with which ones they buy.

Those who can afford a lot of games then have the problem of not having enough space on their console to store them. So you also need an expansion card, and they are not cheap.

However, if a recent leak is anything to go by, Xbox owners may be in for a treat, as plans appear to be underway to launch a 1TB Xbox expansion card that’s significantly cheaper than Microsoft’s current offerings.

For context, a 1TB expansion card for the Xbox Series X/S normally costs £219.99.

This leaked expansion card offers the same amount of space for games, but is expected to cost around £145 – about £75 cheaper.

An offer for the card was spotted at US retailer Best Buy (via VGC), with a price tag of $179.99, but has since been removed.

Presumably the listing was just uploaded too early and a more formal announcement will be made later. Hopefully with a UK release date too.

If you’d rather not wait for a hypothetically cheaper expansion card, we’ve spotted some discounts on the current card.

Argos sells the card for £189.99 – £30 less than the usual asking price – while Amazonhas a discount that brings it down to £184.99.
