USB Storage Now Available For Xbox 360

Remember a couple weeks back when Microsoft announced that they would finally be allowing USB storage for the Xbox 360? Well, that day is finally here.

Starting this morning, Xbox 360 users are now able to use USB drives to store games, videos, music, etc. Right now, Microsoft is only recommending that people use USB flash drives.

The minimum size required is a 1GB drive, while the most you can use on one drive is 16GB.

Until now, Xbox users had been forced to buy Microsoft’s proprietary drives which cost several times the market rate for similar size/speed external drives.
