Xbox 360 Preview Program Members Get 2TB Hard Drive Support

Microsoft has announced that an upcoming update for Xbox 360 Preview Program members will enable support for 2TB hard drives for the console.

Additionally, the update will also add compatibility for up to two external hard drives in use at a time. In a new blog post, Microsoft’s Major Nelson said that this is one of the most requested features from the Xbox 360 community.

“In addition we will also no longer reserve space in advance on your hard drive,” Microsoft said. “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.”

There’s no information on when the update will be available for others, but a launch for the public later this year is confirmed.

Major Nelson also confirmed that some drives may be incompatible with the console, or give users performance issues. “If you already have space reserved for storing Xbox 360 data, you will need to clear the Xbox 360 storage to gain full access to the drive. If you are in the Preview program, please review the list of known issues before formatting your drive.”

In case you’re wondering, the Xbox Preview Program grants members access to system updates in advance of everyone else.
