Lol, didnt actually click on it - just assumed as the price comes up as £69.93, it had something to do with this - particularly when there are no other vouchers mentioned!

I don't know the particulars but supposedly MS are going to allow external storage soon, so you may want to find out more for yourself before splashing any money.

This is true, but there is a limit of 16Gb for external storage used in this manner.

Taken from Joystiq...

[INDENT][COLOR="Blue"]Documentation obtained by Joystiq – and subsequently confirmed with two separate sources – reveals that "USB Mass Storage Device Support on Xbox 360" will soon be a reality. The document, authored by a senior software development engineer at Microsoft, states that due to "increased market penetration of high-capacity, high throughput USB mass storage devices, a 2010 Xbox 360 system update" will allow consumers to save and load game data from USB devices. The update is purportedly coming in Spring 2010.

Once the update occurs, Xbox 360 owners will be able to download Xbox Live Arcade games, Xbox Live Indie games, Games on Demand, DLC and Title Updates to the storage device. "USB storage devices may, however, have far greater memory capacity than MUs (at the date of writing, the largest MU is 512 MB), and may therefore support previously infeasible operations-such as installation of a full disc-based title." That's right, you can also store disc-based games to the USB device; however, it will require the disc to be in the tray for authentication, identical to the current functionality.
Gallery: USB Mass Storage Device Support on Xbox 360


According to the document, the USB mass storage device must be at least 1GB and the system will do a compatibility check. "The system partition occupies 512 MB of space, and by default the consumer partition occupies the remainder of the device capacity, or 16 GB, whichever is smaller." Upon inserting a blank USB storage device, "consumers are offered two choices: 'Configure now' or 'Customize'." The "Configure now" option will use "the entire device capacity, up to the maximum of 512 MB plus 16 GB" meaning, regardless of the overall size of the device you're using, the Xbox will only enable 16 GB of usable, non-system storage. The "Customize" option will allow you to "preserve some pre-existing, non-console data on the device" such as music.

It should be clear by now that Microsoft is simply pulling out of the Memory Unit business and not the highly lucrative Xbox hard drive business. With an artificial cap of 16 GB – still shy of the 20 GB hard drive that shipped with the original 2005 Xbox Pro and a fraction the size of the currently shipping 120 GB hard drive – USB storage support simply removes the onerous requirement for a Memory Unit on Xbox 360 Arcade units, and brings the Xbox 360 platform a feature that's been present on the PlayStation 3 since that console's 2006 launch.

If you're intent on circumventing Microsoft's cutthroat hard drive pricing the Xbox 360, you can use two USB storage devices for a maximum of 32 GB of usable storage; however, the console "has a fixed limit of two external USB mass storage devices" regardless of whether they're "formatted for the Xbox 360 or not." If you fill all three USB ports on the console, only the first two to be connected will be recognized.[/COLOR][/INDENT]

Or £69.73 at TheHut.
Also with 2% Quidco.

Edit: Mis-read above post, currys is better deal.
#19
Be aware there's a strong rumour going around that MS will allow non-MS external HDD's up to 16GB's to connect via USB in the next few months.

EDIT: Or what's just been posted above...

It's as from the end of next week. :)

I have a 250gb Super Elite & I like to load up as many of my games and run them from the hard drive as possible, it's a convenience thing.
60gb & 120gb just wasn't enough for that (and the arcade games, saves, movies etc).

As for the 16gb flash drive capability that is coming.......as I understand it it's actually 32gb.
2 x 16gb sticks (any brand) will be possible.
This is undoubtedly a major result for Xbox 360 Arcade console owners and may give the rest of us some benefit too.

It'll be interesting to see how this works out.
I already chop the console's noise down to 'normal' levels (my mate's PS3, for instance, is noteably louder when it's fans start up) with saving and playing games on the hard drive.
Hopefully by saving to a flash stick I can get rid of even the hard drive noise.
#22
April Microsoft lift the ban on flash drives you can use 2x16 flash drives for storage so this is useless i have a elite with a 120gb drive that I've had 2 years and it still has 93gb of space, whats the point of loading games from the hdd if the disc still needs to be in the drive.
#23
i expect load times will be slower but probably nto enough to bother u
#24
installing games to HDD makes the games run quieter because the 360 disc drive isn't constantly spinning the disc up, and also because of this makes the 360 cooler.
#25
I copy all of the games I play regularly to my HDD because they load slightly quicker and it really does lessen the noise made by the 360.

LOL OK for you but I have a 120GB thats got around 80Gb on it already...... think I might have trouble fitting 80Gb on 2x16Gb sticks :whistling:

Basically stops load times, makes everything run smoother, stops any chance of your disc being heavily scratched and unplayable...

My 360's keeps having a hissy fit about the disc tray reading things and saving games to the hard drive's been a life saver.

I love my xbox but microsoft is all about money


So are all other businesses...

Even so, this much for a 250GB drive is a horrible rip off. They do like to monopolise this kind of thing though and it works well for them because all the console junkies eat it up.

Indeed, hence why I JTAG'ed mine and connected a nice 2TB hd to it. :-D
Sod you M$ and your overpriced Proprietary hardware :x

im so sick of my 20gb being FULL :( i mite get this or wait for Sandisks official 360 32Gig USB mem stick.

£69.93 on the link. Is there a code (I've looked but nowt so far).

Wow £70 for a 250GB Hardrive is ridiculous. Love my xbox but microsoft charge way too much for anything and everything xbox related. A wireless adapter costs £40 whereas your standard pc one could be bought for £7 or so, to be equally as good. A 1TB HDD costs less than this and would do the same job.Rant over

How to obtain a Data Transfer Kit

...

The Data Transfer Kit is included with the 120GB Hard Drive accessory. If you've purchased a new Xbox 360 Elite system and want to transfer your data, you can contact Xbox Support to purchase a Data Transfer Kit, which costs £12.99 (excluding VAT).

Precisely, which is why I made my own out of principle.

It can't honestly be about security either since the PS3 has a completely open policy on almost every type of accessory (barring controllers only I think) and that console has proven to be the most invulnerable to attack in history.

Really, why's that then?

I've never actually installed Halo 3 as it's one of the few games that doesn't make the console sound like it's preparing for a launch into orbit.
