Western Digital’s My Passport X designed with gamers in mind

If there’s one thing any PS4 or Xbox One owner will admit, it’s that a 500GB hard drive doesn’t go as far as it used to. Games this generation can be huge, and that’s before factoring in some patches that clock in at a few GBs on their own. Investing in a larger internal or more »
