Tape storage was up in 2022 while HDD sales fell

Usually here at PC Gamer I’m writing about blisteringly fast storage to get your games up and running as soon as possible.

In fact, if you’re after some of that fast to take away your furious, we have a list of some of our favourite SSDs right here (opens in new tab). If you’re more of a slow-and-steady strategist, the good news is tape storage is back, with sales of the old school medium on the rise. 

You’d be absolutely correct in wondering why anyone could have a use for tape storage in 2023. Most of us running our PCs for general use certainly have no interest in this archaic format.
