It seems that Microsoft's latest dashboard update to the Xbox 360 was little more than a trojan horse for a super secret USB storage update from the original 16GB capto 32GB -- you can't fool us, Microsoft! Er, at least you can't fool the vast swaths of people using their Xbox 360s, who tipped our superfriends at Joystiq on the update. Microsoft confirmed the storage limit change as intentional and explained its purpose in a statement: "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. Therefore we increased the size of the memory to enable our customers to take more of their Xbox profile with them on the go." So, there you have it! If you'll excuse us, we'll be over here loading our entire history of game saves to USB sticks for mobile gloating.

As happy as I am to see them increasing the limit for portable storage, I think MS should focus more on increasing HDD storage to at least 1TB.

If you played all those games you downloaded Neato, you could delete some and have loads of free space on your drive!!

Agreed! Although I can't see it happening. I think we will be lucky to see a 500GB drive in the next gen consoles. Lets live and hope though  ;)
