Xbox Series X/S Allows Fragment Deletion of Games to Free Up Storage

It’s been a long time coming that people have been skeptical over the fact that all the games they want to play won’t fit in the new-gen Xbox. Microsoft just came out with a solution, and it looks like everything you may have asked for but with a little sketchy vibe just to keep you at the tip of your toes.

The whole $220 1TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 memory expansion for the Xbox has definitely brought in a lot of negative reviews, especially that it’s price is very near to that of a Xbox Series S console. Luckily enough, in a podcast with Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, Xbox’s director of program management Jason Ronald explains how this memory issue can be resolved. He stated that if titles would allow, players could easily delete fragments of the game they don’t want to have.

Xbox Series X Lets You Uninstall Parts of Games to Manage Storage

Well, truth be told, that doesn’t seem to be too conducive from the developers end, but it’s definitely a solution. This exactly means that if you get a game with a campaign and a multiplayer yet you only would want to focus on one aspect, you can easily delete the one you won’t use to easily free you up some space.

The Xbox Series X boasts 1TB storage but 20% of it would go for system files. This posts a problem for the Xbox Series S with only 512GB to boot, but Ronald promises that the Series S would in general have smaller files to deal with since the system isn’t as strong. What a promise.
