New XBox Update Offers USB Support

April 17th, 2010 Posted in Games

While the Xbox 360 from Microsoft may have by far the largest contingent of online players for a console system in its generation, one thing has been true of the system and that is that it came with less at the start than Sony built into their rival machine, the PS3. Thanks to a recent update, the Xbox 360 will now offer USB storage support to make it easier for archiving fans to be able to save any data they like onto a memory key or external drive of their choosing that offers more than 1 Gb of data storage space. The storage device may also not exceed 16 Gb which is something baffling to many online gaming experts. This can lead to hassles for many users who are looking to save their data on memory keys ranging from 64 MB to 512 MB, sizes that the XBox 360 has no plans to support. The reason this has frustrated so many players is the fact that most of the data they would like to save from their games is mall in nature and usually has to do with extra images they can download for their XBox Live dashboard.

The typical price for memory keys usually runs around $40 for an 8 GB stick to $70 for a 16 GB model as long as one chooses the official SanDisk versions that are sanctioned by Microsoft. The move has frustrated many of the XBox Live system who have proven especially loyal among online console gamers and lead many in the gaming media to speak out against what they see as non courteous conduct towards subscribers.
