    Default XBox 360 supports USB Hard Drive devices

    Xbox 360 USB Hard Drive Support Confirmed
    System update coming this April.


    Source - IGN

    March 26, 2010 - Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox 360 will be receiving USB hard drive support in a system update available on April 6. As detailed in a leaked report from last week, the update allows users to store "profiles, game saves, demos and more," according to the announcement.

    Once the update is installed, you'll be allowed to insert any USB hard drive into the console, however, the drive must first be configured. The system will then conduct a one time "performance and integrity check" to confirm the drive is working properly.

    Users can then set how much space they want to use on the drive, but only up to 16GB each. The remaining space can be accessible by your PC or Mac computer. USB flash drives are also compatible with this update, which Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb suggests you use instead of a standard hard disk drive.

    "I highly recommend using flash based instead of spinning media like a hard drive…it's just going to give you a MUCH better experience," he said.

    Users can connect up to two drives at one time, allowing for a total of 32GB, and drive configuration must be done manually through the menu. It will not be automatic. The two options are: "Configure Now (Format and Configure the Full Device), or Customize (you can choose how much memory you want configured for Xbox 360 from the free space on the device.)"

    Microsoft is also partnering with SanDisk to release a Xbox 360 branded flash drive in May that comes pre-configured. Check the gallery to see an assortment of new menu screenshots.

    Can I serve you with my fist, master?
