60 gigs is not enough

Gameplayer makes the case that the 360's 'upgraded' 60-gig hard drive has no chance of coping with the incoming tidal wave of downloadable content:

"60 gigs isn't enough. It's not even close. If the suits at Microsoft want their customers to actually enjoy the 360's new online features to the full, they'd better announce a bigger, better hard drive, quick smart."

Is it not possible to plug an external hard drive into a 360? It does have USB ports.

I'm a PS3 man meself so I really don't know.

If people really want to use the 360 as a media center, they will upgrade the hard drive. MS is just giving people a choice, although I'm not sure if some of the original premium owners (20GB anyone?) will look upon this so kindly.

That is possible with a mod or a hack. It isn't as easy as PS3 where you can swap internal harddrives and plug in external harddrives. Whatever HDD size is on HDD is always gonna be "never enough" simply because the proprietary 360 HDDs are too expensive.

I'm sure that both MS and sony will add more hardrive space as the generation progresses and hardware production costs lower.

wtf is wrong with this retard? he acts like the elite didnt exist.

People forget that a 120 Gig hard drive exists. I predict M-soft docks the price of the 20 gig so the 60 sells for $100. Likewise I expect the 120 Gig to sell for at least $30 dollars off...or has that been reported already and I'm reciting memory? :-P

"wtf is wrong with this retard?"

He writes for gameplayer and all articles must provoke the fanboys. ;/

What he forgets is not only the 120G HDD, but that limiting hard drive space is a very deliberate strategy to keep people refreshing their content and hence buying more DLC.

Kind of like bars without enough seating, if you don't have a place to sit and get comfortable and you've finished your drink, guess what you do?!
