Wouldn't it be good if USB flash drives could be used as a memory unit for games. Especially with prices dropping all the time. 512MB hardly seems like anything!

Well that's good about the Arcade size increase. I just wish they would think further ahead then to release this as a 512MB unit. Heck I see 2GB flash drives for $24 - $29 all the time, ohh well I use the HDD anyway. No news on a bigger HDD yet?

I agree it would be good. It makes a lot more sense price wise, and I don't see why it wouldn't be possible.
