Xbox 360 owners will be pleased to know that the recent "spring 2012" update has upgraded the flash drive capacity from 16GB to 32GB according to VG24/7, something that Microsoft has assured was intended and not just a side effect of the update.

A spokesperson for Microsoft has said that "the more our customers use their profile and download digital content, the larger the file size necessary to store that content and move it between consoles gets.” The spokesperson goes onto state that "therefore we increased the size of the memory to enable our customers to take more of their Xbox profile with them on the go."

The new update has been rolling out since October 15th, and has introduced the new Xbox 360 dashboard look among various other tweaks and fixes.

It's always the money.

Next gen of consoles better not f*** around with HDD space. I want terabytes of storage available for a non-ridiculous price.

I don't have an 360, and I don't get it.

The "update has upgraded their flash drive from 16GB to 32GB"?

Microsoft has upgraded a piece of hardware with a software update...?

I assume it is meant to mean you can now use 32GB sticks, rather than being limited to 16GB ones, and the article is just badly worded?

Im thinking it relates to profile transfers between machines. With Xbox you have to buy a specific cable to transfer your data between consoles.

To transfer your saved data like profiles, saved games and demos, you need to use this and it was probably limited. So they've increased it.

The PS3 has always had a user-replaceable HDD. It takes a normal 2.5" HDD.

Basically, the Xbox 360 could only use up to 16GB on flash drives, however after the update it can now use up to 32GB on flash drives.

That isn't entirely correct you could use larger drives you we just limited to 16 GB you could even use the remaining space on the drive for other things.
