    While I'm definitely interested, it sounds like it has the same restrictions as a memory unit. Meaning it can do everything a HDD can do... except original xbox games(They require the HD for caching, and MS would be idiotic to do that on a flash device). I would love to be proven wrong though.

    It might make hacking easier... but I wouldn't hold my breath on it.

    According to the news I've seen, yes, only 16GB. You can stick in a bigger flash drive (say, 32GB for instance) but it'll only actually use 16GB of it. The rest can be whatever data you like to keep on it.

    Extremely overpriced! Link

    Oh, and possibly making hacking easier... Like put Full Game File on USB, burn the 1st ring of a disc, as that's all it needs to run stored games?

    I been reading about this for over a week now. It requires the flash drive to be at least 1gb. Why? The reason is about 568mb will be used for system files. You can also use a harddrive. However the limit is still 16gb with another 568mb being stolen for the system. The rest can be used for whatever file system you prefer. In other other words, the remaining can be used for your pc and other non-xb360 related files.

    Actually this will make gamertag and game save hacking more wide spread. You'll no longer need a usb adapter for your hdd. Just use the flash drive instead.

    I wouldn't be surpised, if they eventually take away third party flash drive support. They blocked third party MUs after all.
