Celebrating the legendary Master Chief from the Halo video game franchise, this limited edition Game Drive features a one-of-a-kind sleek case design that celebrates the Master Chief John-117. A limited Master Chief vinyl die-cut sticker set also comes in the box for fans to collect. The new drive is available in 2 TB and 5 TB capacities so gamers can install more games and downloadable game content by balancing their gaming workload between console and external HDD.

I've only seen new gen Xbox external drives from Seagate. Will they be the only supplier?

Yeah, you left out the two kicks in the nuts: this is a mechanical drive and DirectStorage won't work with it. Though the latter is not specific for this drive, DirectStorage requires NVMe, so it won't work with any external drive.

You sure about it being mechanical when it operates of 5V?
I'd assume it's an SSD.

How do 2.5" mechanical drives operate powered by a USB connection only?

USB provides 5v, 2.5" HDDs and SSDs only use the 5v line so they need no external connection. This is definitely a hard drive.
Bigger (typically >5TB) external drives are 3.5" on the inside, and those use 12v so they need an external power supply.

This should have been just an external case that you could put a SATA SSD in. Using an HDD makes no sense even for Xbox One games.

Besides, when Halo TMCC gets the Series X update, you will have to install it on the internal drive anyway (or the official expansion card).
