While Microsoft has slowly started redirecting its workforce to the new age Xbox One, it hardly means that the company has left its previously released Xbox 360 console for dead. And accordingly, the company has now pushed a new firmware update for the console that brings USB hard drive support up to 2TB.

However, the latest update from Microsoft for the console isn't anything out of the blue as Microsoft had already detailed its users on a new Xbox 360 system update with the same set of support last month.

Prior to the update, the previous memory cap that was set for the Xbox 360 was a mere 32GB, irrespective of whether or not you plugged in a device with large memory space.

Apart from that, it was also revealed that the firmware refresh would roll out soon to the ones who signed up for the Xbox 360 dashboard beta programme, with a full public launch to follow soon after. Moreover, the update has also removed the Xbox 360's previous process of reserving hard drive space in advance to maximise the room on the player's drive.

However, the new feature, previously available to preview program members, has been pushed out alongside a couple of other new features. Now purchase history and password resetting are easier to access, alongside a new network stats screen to check up on your console online.

Also, with the new update, players' Microsoft account balance will now appear on-screen in the top-right corner of the Xbox Dashboard, although the feature can be disabled.
