USB Storage Support Hits Xbox 360 on April 6

Microsoft has revealed plans to allow Xbox 360 owners to use USB memory devices as portable storage units for the normally restrictive console. According to Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb, the new memory options will be part of an update that’s scheduled to go out on Tuesday, April 6.
The flash memory wizards over at SanDisk will be releasing an Xbox 360 branded USB drive in May; Microsoft notes, however, that pretty much any flash drive between 1 GB and 16 GB should work just fine. In fact, some external hard drives may also work, though the console will utilize a maximum of 16 GB of space regardless of the drive’s capacity. Up to two USB storage devices may be connected to the 360 at any given time, potentially granting the console an additional 32 GB of space.

Once the update hits next month, all you’ll have to do is insert your USB memory unit, then head over to the system settings section of the dashboard. From there, simply choose how much of the device’s memory to split between your Xbox 360 and any computers (PC or Mac) you may still want to use. Then hit format, and you should be on your way to a compact, affordable storage solution for your Xbox 360.
