It is a fact that licensed Microsoft accessories for the Xbox 360 are unreasonably expensive. One of these products though, the 16GB flash drive, just received a price drop.
Xbox It only does everything! EDIT: Well I tried DWeezy91, but in less than a minute I was already shot down.
Wow thats an awesome deal, 60 bucks for 16 gbs! /s
An unreasonably priced accessory gets a slightly less unreasonable price. Whoop-de-doo. At least it's SOMEWHAT better than those ridiculous memory cards.
Sorry to hear that, dude. I'll give you an agree, even though this is a price drop and not an Xbox feature (I never said everyone else would agree with you). Try it on an article talking about features on the 360 next time. On Topic - It's just a $10 drop to the price of a game, which is a lot, but maybe it'll go down in the holiday season. You can't use any old USB Drive anymore, can you?
This kinda sucks considering i just bought a kingston 16GB for that price.
whats everything? Halo?
Xbox, it only does everything* *Some restrictions to online service, and three red rings of death may apply.
Rofl Really good comment. On topic, well, Microsoft changes prices of stuff when they fail to force users to adopt it. These last months, the gold subscription is officially on sale. I wonder what that mean? No so much gold users after all? I am so sad, microsoft does not change their point of view about the online and proprietary overpriced devices... I have a 360 since 2007, dozens of games i want to try online but i refuse to pay a tax to use my internet connection twice. But obviously, they are weak people that can not prevent themselves to follow their "friends" and buy expensive stuff from Microsoft, including online tax, and be proud of it. I played 4 months free on the live (with coupons), and for me, there was no reason to pay for that since 2007, and there is even less, now, in 2010.
It only charges for everything... Edit: (yeah, know its a bad thing to say - but come on! $60 for a freaking flash drive? )
You can spend 60 for a 250 GB external hard drive...
@rdgneoz3 hell you can pay 90$ for a western digital 2TB external hd
Well it does partys, something that PS3 still doesnt do, so i guess that counts for something?
But is it worth all of that money you have to spend on memory and the ability to play online? Your call..
Hows playstation plus?
its cool, im atm playing my FREE Littlebigplanet and my FREE Wipeout HD
first of all T9X69, that joke is soo funny im on the floor crying, no really. Second, i love the idea of saving games onto a usb drive ps- xbox 360 it only does midcore stuff
Actually if they make a $149 360S add a cheap 16GB USB Drive and you have a pretty good deal. Especially if you're primarily a causal gamer (XBLA).
If you haven't noticed all the old consoles for 360 have gone down around $50, going for a bargain, and these are the ones that don't red ring.. This is a waste of money, in my opinion there must be some sort of special feature for the USB
No it doesent. Can it play BLU Ray . I don't this so . And the PS3 can use any sized and brand Flash Drive since day one .
lol. hello mods?
just buy a generic 16Gb usb stick. @spawn king, how often do you change the PS3 hard drive? Thats a terrible argument, it can use any hard drive etc. The only issue with that, how would you ever fill up a ps3 hard drive since their isnt any hard drive installs? @independent_charles, you say the ps3 hasnt been hacked and games havent been modded. Well 1 guy has done it on modern warfare 2 check the link: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Video doesnt lie, before you tell me that its been edited.
oh really? wow some people are so deluded
I don't know. Is kinda cool that all of the Xbox's save utilities are removable.
Since n64 nothing cool about it.
You have to buy a proprietary flash drive as well? That's lame as hell.
any flash drive (or External HDD for that matter) works. MS and SanDisk are just trying to rip people off. It takes less than a minute for the xbox to configure a flash drive (at least it did for my 2 gig one)
yep, I suggest to just buy a low brand flash drive.It works
yah they had a bunch of 2 gb flash drives at the checkout at a target for like 2 bucks so i bought like 5 haha.
still expensive... meh
$60 for a 16 GB flash drive?! Hahaha
That's what I'm saying $60 whoopi doo I can get a game for that price. heh
other companies have gotten away with charging $25 for 8mb for a decade now....just sayin'.
Yeah, but flash memory was a shit-load more expensive back then, even though the PS2 memory cards were grossly overpriced.
