Xbox 360 USB Storage Update is Now Live

By Yaris Gutierrez

April 6, 2010

“Finally!” That’s what I’m assuming the majority of Xbox 360 owners (which includes myself) are yelling as they read this and begin to fire up their Microsoft-made console to get kinky with USB storage.

The system update enabling USB storage is now live, ladies and gentlemen – allowing you to explore the wonders of non-proprietary storage options outside of Microsoft’s overly expensive HDD. Yay! However, for those of you who haven’t yet been notified of how this thing works, USB devices need to be over 1GB, but can only use 16GB of available storage. You also have the option of using two sticks at once for 32GB, and can switch them out at any given time. Your limit really depends on just how many USB devices you have, ideally.

Are you happy? Of course you are! I am too. We should celebrate by dressing in food costumes and wrestling each other in public. Any takers?
