Xbox 360 Update Will Add USB Storage Function
Sick of your measly 64MB and 512MB memory cards? Running short of space on your Xbox 360 hard drive? Well, fret no more friends, because support for USB Memory devices is reportedly on the way for Xbox 360.
According to documentation gleaned by Joystiq, "USB Mass Storage Device Support on Xbox 360" is planned to arrive in an upcoming update this year. The document was penned by a senior software development engineer at Microsoft apparently, and reasons that due to "increased market penetration of high-capacity, high throughput USB mass storage devices, a 2010 Xbox 360 system update" will enable 360 owners to save and load game data from a number of USB devices when it hits in Spring 2010. That's if the reports - backed up by two seperate sources - are to be believed.
The update will also allow you to download Xbox Live Arcade games, Xbox Live Indie games, Games on Demand, DLC and other updates to a USB storage device, which are generally of much greater capacity than your standard Xbox 360 memory card, which currently stands at a maximum of 512MB.
What's more, you'll also be able to install your games to a USB storage device to really save on hard drive space, although you'll obviously still need to have the disc in the machine to play a game as usual.
...personally think this is great news as I myself have only got the 10gb HDD.
PS: New slimline 360, could be interesting! CLICK
