So the New Xbox Experience is right around the corner and it requires a minimum of a 256MB memory card. What are the owners of the Xbox Arcade Edition supposed to do go and buy another memory card or even a hard drive? Was this Microsoft’s thinking all along? Well the answer is no! Here is what Major Nelson had to say about the required memory problem that some where going to be faced with.
The new Xbox experience will require 128MB of free space. A hard drive is recommended for the optimal experience, to take advantage of some new features, and to be able to enjoy the great movies, TV shows and games available on Xbox LIVE. While we expect the majority of consumers to download the New Xbox Experience without a problem, a small percentage of Xbox 360 owners do not have enough memory to accommodate the update. To help ensure all Xbox LIVE members are able to download the New Xbox Experience and enjoy its new features, Microsoft will be offering storage solutions to the Xbox LIVE community. We are not sharing details of this offering yet. Be sure to check xbox.com for more details in the coming weeks.”
