The lights are on
In March 2010, Microsoft allowed users to connect USB and hard drive devices to the console but only allowed a maximum storage space of 16GB. The new dashboard update this fall has increased the size to 32GB.
"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," a Microsoft spokesperson said. "Therefore we increased the size of the memory to enable our customers to take more of their Xbox profile with them on the go."

This changes everything.
Now they can compete with the Wii U capacity (I keed, I keed)...
So when the Xbox 1440 releases, people will finally be able to use their portable in terrabyte harddrives on the 360 then? Because at this point, it's looking lik eit.
It's like a whole new system. :D
I guess that's cool.
As someone who practically depends on USB-based storage, I am really happy about this update.
Owned a 360 for 3 years, and I did not know it accepted flash drives. This will help my storage issues.
About freaking time!
More is always better.
Great news for us Arcade owners.
