Western Digital speeds up your gaming with the WD_Black P10 Game Drive

With the WD_Black USB Game Drive, veteran hard drive manufacturer, Western Digital seeks to solve gamers’ storage dilemma.

Remember when you thought that 1TB of hard drive space in your PlayStation 4 Pro or Xbox One X would be more than enough?
