WD ties up with Amazon.in for the launch of My Passport X Portable Hard Drives in India

Mumbai, India, July 15, 2015: WD, a Western Digital company, and world leader in storage solutions, today introduced the availability of My Passport X portable hard drive for gamers on Amazon.in. When connected to Xbox One or a PC, the sleek 2 TB My Passport X drive provides much-needed storage capacity for gamers to store up to 50 extra game titles, eliminating the need to delete previously purchased games from their Xbox One console or PC hard drives and removing those “storage full” warning messages while so players can get back to their games. In addition to the added storage, gamers can use My Passport X to take saved games to use on friends’ systems without having to re-download.

The USB 3.0 technology lets users access and save files on the My Passport X portable hard drive in blazing-fast speed without a separate power supply. The My Passport X portable drive’s stylish and compact design is also built for durability and shock tolerance, as well as long-term reliability for peace of mind. In addition, the drive offers gamers no-sweat set-up – they just plug it in, follow the easy on-screen instructions and enjoy expanded storage for backing up, protecting and storing games and content in just minutes.

“With modern games becoming larger in file size, console gamers can store fewer games on the devices themselves. The My Passport X portable drive provides a fast and convenient extension to a console’s storage capacity,” said Khalid Wani, Director, Content Solutions Business, India, Middle East and Africa for WD. “Xbox One is already available with Amazon.in. This launch will allow consumers to conveniently purchase the My Passport X drives from the same e-tailer.”
