Having already handed over 512MB flash drives to Arcade gamers who wanted to try out the NXE, Microsoft has changed tack, and has told 360fanboy that they'll be shoving a 256MB drive into all new models. NXE needs 128MB in order to play nice.
The idea is to get everyone using the 360 as a media hub as much as a games console. Microsoft clearly fancies turning the screw on Sony in 2009 and this seems like a pretty straightforward way to get the Japanese giants panicking.
What do you think? Is the NXE a waste of time? Or have you been using it loads since downloading it at the end of November? Let us know in the comments section.
