Every year, consoles get a little bit closer to traditional computers. Now it seems that the Xbox 360 will support USB mass storage. Joystiq reports that an internal Microsoft document hints that consumers will soon be able to save and load their game data on USB mass storage devices.
This update should hit around Spring of 2010. Gamers will be able to downloadXbox Live Arcade games, Indie Games, and Games on Demand (plus DLC and Title Updates) to their USB device. Disc-based games will also be storable on USB devices. Unfortunately, the disc will still need to be inside the machine for authentication.
The largest USB drives allowed will be 16 GB. There will be a limit of no more than two external USB devices attached at a time. That means up to 32 GB of total USB storage (minus the 512 MB required as a system partition).

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
