Nyko releases Xbox One Data Bank for Christmas with days to spare

With just days to go before the Christmas holiday, Nyko has offered its own solution to the Xbox One storage problem.


Earlier this year, an official external hard drive solution was issued for the Xbox One. But how about someone looking to use something a little different? Namely, what about someone looking to use an extra internal hard drive that may be laying around? Nyko has just issued that particular solution today.

The Nyko Data Bank for Xbox One was unveiled earlier this year, operating on the idea that any standard desktop 3.5" hard drive can be connected through an attachment placed above the Xbox One. The device follows up on Nyko's release of the Data Bank for PlayStation 4, which performs the exact same function for Sony's console.

The Nyko Data Bank for Xbox One is available today for $39.99, in case anyone needs a last-second gift.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      it mounts on top? I think I like the side mounted option better


      that one requires a 2.5" drive unlike this nyko one but I think it looks better and definitely fits the space I have my xbone in a little better.

        That one also gives you more USB 3 ports on the front which is nice.

        Yeah, front USB is nice. Plugging in microphone in a small entertainment centre is a PITA.

        Wow, amazon.ca link, and same price!


        One review says it didn't work with his RB4 microphone though and another states XboxOne standby isn't supported if you have an external drive attached.

        Quick research before buying needed. :D

          Looks like it's an issue with some drives not responding to standby / powersave options so as long as I buy a known good drive to put in there, I should be fine.

          I'll take the gamble on the microphones after I measure to ensure it will fit.

      It's nice to see Microsoft not being total jerks about adding storage to your console this time around. The annual maximum increases they were doing with the 360 was incredibly lame.

      These Nyko boxes are pretty cool too.

      2.5" portable drives are so cheap, why go full size? 5400 vs 7200 RPM won't mean shit, if you really want speed pop an SSD in a USB 3 vaddy.

        3.5" gives you more per dollar. In other words they're cheaper.
