Seagate Expansion 4TB portable 2.5 inch external hard drive

I am considering getting a 4TB Seagate Expansion external hard drive for more space on both my xbox one and ps4 consoles as well as a pc I may be getting soon, however I was wondering if I would be able to have Xbox ps4 and pc games on the hard drive all at once without any interference. Could all of these on a single hard drive cause any issues.

How would you connect a drive to three different devices at the same time?

No I mean use the hard drive on each system at different times so I can download ps4 games on there and play them but also at another point in time download Xbox games and play them however will they interfere with each other

I'm going with yes.

So far I've yet to see Sony and Xbox makers work together to make this work. So nope, it shouldn't work. Keep your Xbox drive to the Xbox, sony to sony, etc.
