Microsoft confirms USB storage; coming to 360 next week

Posted in Xbox 360 with tags , on March 29, 2010 by James Love

Microsoft have confirmed that the rumours about USB mass storage coming the 360 are indeed true, and an update will be coming April 6th to enable the use of external memory.

The update allows you to use a maximum external storage device of up to 32GB (you can get up to 32GB by attaching¬† maximum of 2 devices, as each device is limited to 16GB each) which means the update won’t be able to compete with Microsoft’s launch of their new 250GB HDD’s, which arrive in the UK on April 16th for ¬£80.

Microsoft also announced they would be releasing Xbox-branded SanDisk USB sticks that come ready to be used right out of the box. The SanDisk sticks are set to be released in May, though no capacities or pricing was announced.

It comes after Xbox Live went through a bit of a kicking during the weekend when people got signed out by the system but the Major states that while this has been fixed, the downtime is to reinforce the brick wall put up by Microsoft for the launch of NXE on Wednesday.
