Save your Halo Reach games to a USB drive

The USB goes in under my armpart!
Word on the street is that Halo fans will be able to use USB storage devices (my mate calls them ‘dongles’) to save games and game saves directly to them.
Here’s the word from Joystick

"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."

Apparently you will be able to use 16 gig worth of storage per USB device – even if say it has 32 gigs. So if your 20 gig XBox hard drive is full of Nine in Nails and the new Hole album, feel free to save Halo Reach to your formatted USB stick!

Extra for experts: In case you didn’t know you can save the full game to your disk drive to allow for faster load times and better audio etc.
