XBOX fans will get more room to download and keep the latest blockbuster titles
Xbox One owners will soon be able to store their save files and games on external hard drives.
Fans have been left frustrated that the 500GB internal storage gets full pretty quickly as new games take up so much space.
Microsoft is now promising its June machine update will provide support for external memory boxes to help solve the situation.
You'll even be able to copy entire games onto a hard drive and cart them round a mate's house to play instantly.
A spokesman for Xbox One said: "It couldn’t be easier to increase your storage capacity of games and apps with the external storage support features we’re bringing in June.
"Your Xbox One system will soon support up to two external hard drives at once.
"Simply plug in your 256GB or larger USB 3.0 external hard drive and once formatted, copy and move games, apps and game add-ons to increase your storage capacity at home."
He added: "This is also a great way to take your content to a friend’s house and get straight into a game directly from an external drive.
"You’ll need to sign in to Xbox Live if you’ve purchased your content digitally or insert a disc to verify your game ownership when you take your content on the road."The great benefit here is there’s no need to wait to re-download your game and all the DLC.
"With external storage support in June, you can also choose to copy full games and all of the associated content in one easy step."
Gamers will also be able to identify their friends online by showing you their real names as well as traditional "gamer tags" thanks to the update.
You can have 1,000 friends on your "next gen" Xbox, but as the list currently grows it can be tough to keep track of who's who.
That'll all change.
"Now with real names feature you can recognize people on your friends list and more easily discover people you already know who are on Xbox Live," the spokesman said.
"You’ll be able to share with all your friends, a subset of your choosing, friends of friends or none at all. The choice is yours.
"Also, your name doesn’t show up in games, and you can change your settings any time from your profile and when adding new friends."With external storage support in June, you can also choose to copy full games & all of the associated content in one easy step
