Default Xbox 360, PS3 Get Unlimited Storage

February 18, 2010 - For anyone wanting to transfer large files over a short distance without a local area network, having to do the USB stick shuffle is a huge pain. Load, unload, delete, repeat. Sure you could buy a higher capacity stick, but they're expensive and still have limitations. Infinitec is looking to bust through the memory barrier with its new USB streaming technology.

Rather than storing a handful of gigabytes on each stick, the Infinite USB Memory device (IUM) stores zero gigabytes. Instead, it creates an ad hoc wireless network between your laptop and whatever other USB enabled device you want to connect to. You can stream movies to your PS3 or Xbox 360, send images to your once non-wireless printer, or even transfer files between computers by making your whole hard-drive available on the network. Best of all, there are no drivers to install - aside from a one-time "pairing" process that installs the awesomely titled "Infinite Portal" onto your computer - and it works with all operating systems.

Of course, the fact that it's wireless means you can only transfer files within the IUM's range, so there will still be a use for regular old flash memory sticks. There's still no word on pricing or technical specs, but we'll keep an eye out.
I could see how this could be convenient.

Sounds good to me, but it might be $$$. I currently use a 16GB memory stick to add media to my PS3.

Meh, this is rather pointless. You already have "unlimited storage" by this definition if you have WMP11 or if you have PS3 Media Server on your PC. You can't store any media on your 360 so that's pointless, and any media you want to transfer to your PS3 you can do with PS3MS oor WMP11.
