This makes no sense, if you can buy any USB drive, and use it when they make this fabulous, and very attractive April update:
Retailer GameStop has posted prices and release date for the Xbox 360-branded USB drives. Microsoft hasnít learned to competitively price its accessories.
There will be two different sizes, an 8GB and 16GB version. According to the product listing, the 8GB size will retail for $39.99, while the 16GB will retail for $69.99. The USB drives will ship on April 6, according to the listings.
Of course, if those prices sound too big for you, the new storage feature allows users to insert any 3rd party USB drive, but will only dedicate a maximum of 16GB for each.
Right, any USB device should work, so why make an OEM 8Gb device as much as a used 20GB hard drive you can get just about anywhere? Oh, and $69.99? Tell me you canít find a used OEM $60GB HDD for that? I can, so, please, NO ONE buy those devices, go to Big Lots and buy 4GB sticks for ten bucks, or Walmart for reasonable priced 8GB USB sticks.
