If you are one of those gamers who use a USB storage device on your Xbox 360 as a memory card, here’s some great news. You can now go for even larger and higher capacity devices as Microsoft has doubled the USB storage limit in the console in the latest Xbox 360 Dashboard update.
Joystiq reported that the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update for Fall 2012 “quietly increased” the flash drive storage capacity in the console from the 16GB, which was implemented in 2010, to 32GB.
“Yes. 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 told Joystiq. “Therefore we increased the size of the memory to enable our customers to take more of their Xbox profile with them on the go.”
As Redmond Pie noted, “the ability to use external USB storage devices to save game data and profiles is a great way of taking your Xbox 360 presence with you, meaning you’re never tied to one machine.”
A couple of other key features added in the Xbox 360 dashboard update include a version of Internet Explorer 10 and a simplified version of the existing Metro interface.
