Xbox One's Internal Hard Drive Can't Be Replaced

Answering another of the many lingering questions surrounding Xbox One, Microsoft has confirmed that the console's integrated 500GB hard drive cannot be removed and replaced by users like the Xbox 360 HDD before it.
Engadget writes that “hard drives in the Xbox One are non-user-serviceable.” However, Microsoft's Senior Director of Product Planning Albert Penello has since confirmed that you'll be able to bolster your storage with an external hard drive connected to one of Xbox One's USB 3.0 ports.
A hard drive connected to one of Xbox One's USB 3.0 ports "can be used for everything the internal storage can be used for,” according to Penello, which means things like downloads and installs can be stored on an additional storage device.
As well as boasting a 500GB hard drive, Xbox One also is packing 8GB of RAM, an 8-Core CPU, a Blu-Ray drive, HDMI in and out ports, USB 3.0, 802.11n wireless and billions of transistors, which make using it really fast and seamless, apparently.
