Plug-and-Play Storage in Game Consoles - Iomega

Since not everyone has enough technical know-how to properly connect an ordinary external USB hard drive to an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, Iomega has announced the immediate availability of its new 160GB Media Xporter Drive. Iomega says that its wallet-sized drive has been tested for seamless compatibility with the game consoles to eliminate the guesswork often involved in transcoding file formats and the nonsense that goes along with it.

Users simply fill the drive with music, photos, and movies (conversion software is included) and plug the Xporter's USB 2.0 "Y" cable into the Xbox/Playstation's USB 2.0 port. Done. The console is now able to play an entire media library in HDTV resolutions up to 1080p.

For gamers who are more familiar with controllers than keyboards (not all game geeks are computer geeks, after all), the Media Xporter promises a simple way to get media on their consoles. That, one hopes, should justify its $114 retail price, which is close to double what a generic 160GB USB drive costs.
