Official Xbox 360 USB Drives Now ShippingS

Microsoft's official, over-priced USB drives for the Xbox 360 are on their way to retailers as you read this. So what do you get for your money?

You get...a Sandisk-branded USB thumb drive! And not just any USB thumb drive, one that's black, with a giant XBOX 360 logo on it. As we know, they'll come in two flavours, 8GB and 16GB, priced at $35 and $70 respectively.

What do you think, is that kind of premium worth it for a logo and a matching (provided you've got an Elite) colour scheme?

If you're wondering just why you even need a USB drive for your 360, this video should explain things nicely.
