As most of you know, there was a recent update for the Xbox 360 dashboard. Well, it looks like they forgot to mention that it also increased the console’s compatibility with USB drives to a 32GB limit.
As you pr0bably know, the October update added the Internet Explorer web browser, Xbox Video and compatibility with Smartglass among other things. But, oddly, the upgrade to 32GB USB storage went unmentioned.
The new feature has, however, been officially confirmed by a Microsoft representative.
“The more our customers use their profile and download digital content, the larger the file size necessary to store that content and move it between consoles gets. Therefore we increased the size of the memory to enable our customers to take more of their Xbox profile with them on the go.”

Why is it capped at all? Seriously – I’m curious. I’m not flamebaiting.

Doesn’t take a genius to work that one out. Ofcourse they want us to buy the official XBOX hardrivve.. if it wasn’t capped.. everyone would buy a cheap 250gb hard drive over the official one.

They’re not on about the HDD, they’re on about the USB sticks.

To get you to buy the more expensive models with bigger hard drives I guess.

So is he, he’s saying that they cap the USB sticks so that people have to buy the official HDDs to get more space. This is great news for me, I’m still on a tiny 20GB HDD and 16GB on my USB isn’t enough.

Terrible, I’m glad my ps3 doesn’t have such a ridiculous limitation.

It’s great for people who still have 4 year old machines with only 20GB, I know a few of my friends have this issue, and only better as well as you don’t know what state a second hand 120/250/320GB hard drive is in, safer to go buy a brand new usb stick.
