Very roughly comparing 1TB prices versus 500gb price, I would agree, cheaper to buy 500gb and an external. The price difference between the 2 seems around £50 - For £50 you could pick up a 2TB external and £100 will get you a 4TB external
^its a hybrid with the SSD being used mainly to for the OS to speed things up and its a more expensive option, as for game storage, my advice would be go for the 500gb and buy as much external space as you can afford with the saving on a cheaper console,
a cheaper option all round and you will be surprised how it fills up, I have 4.5tb in total and already 25% full.
