OWC 1TB Hybrid Upgrade Kit for Xbox One Review

Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 launched with just 500GB of disk storage. And while this might have sounded like an enormous amount to owners of the previous generation of consoles, the jump from these older boxes in terms of graphical fidelity meant this space would only be enough for a dozen or less games.

Dead Island 2 was noticeably absent from E3 this year. We spotted the beginnings of the title last year and had high hopes for what the game would do in the hands of a brand new developer in Yager Interactive.
