Xbox 360 system update adds 2TB hard drive support for Preview Program members

Microsoft has announced the next update for Xbox 360 Preview Program members will allow the use of 2TB hard drives.


This will allow users to store Xbox 360 data and will no longer reserve space in advance on the console's hard drive.

"In addition we will also no longer reserve space in advance on your hard drive," said the firm. "If you are using 16GB of hard drive space for games – we will only take 16GB of space. And just like today – you will be able to use two external drives at a time."

Microsoft notes that some drives may be incompatible or have performance issues and if space is already reserved for storing Xbox 360 data, it will need to be cleared in order to "gain full access to the drive."

Those not part of the Preview program will be able to use this functionality later in the year.

More information is available through Major Nelson.
