SanDisk outs 8GB, 16GB Xbox 360 flash drive
SanDisk has just shipped its promised, official Xbox 360 USB Flash Drive for the namesake Microsoft console. This allows them to save games, download content and access multimedia content without a hard drive. While any fast USB drive can be used, the SanDisk drive is already pre-formatted and saves time setting up later.
The flash drive is now available, with the 8GB model priced at $35 while the 16GB version costs $70. A one-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold is included with either drive as an incentive to pick these over generic flash storage.
