Microsoft Launches Pricy Xbox 360 Flash Drives

Xbox360-flash-driveSince Microsoft has prevented users from storing their data on external storage devices, it had to come up with a way to provide mode storage space. It has, but can you afford it?

You probably can, but I’m sure you won’t like paying a large amount of cash for a few extra gigabites. Unlike the PS3, which allows players to save data on any external device that connects via USB, the Xbox doesn’t have this native feature, so it requires a workaround. But the brains at Microsoft immediately saw this as a way to squeeze more money from their clients.

The new Xbox 360 flash drives offer 16 Gb of extra space, but at a cost of $70. That’s more than some stores sell their 20 gb drives, these days, and the new Microsoft sticks come with no extra features, other than their compatibility with the Xbox 360, and a free month of Xbox Live Gold, which is worth $8.

I for one would rather waitfor that 250 Gb Xbox 360 add-on HDD.
