While we’re sure many gamers out there plan to eventually upgrade their consoles to next-gen consoles, like the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4, there are probably some gamers who are hoping to get an extra year or two of gaming on their current consoles before moving on. If you’re an Xbox 360 gamer who is still holding out, you might be pleased to learn that Microsoft has recently listed on its website a 500GB media drive that you can attach to your console.
This basically bumps your Xbox 360’s storage by an additional 500GB which is great for gamers who download a lot of games or who takes advantage of the Games for Gold offer. Unfortunately it seems that the 500GB drive is not available for pre-order at the moment, but its listing has us believing that it could be soon before Microsoft starts taking pre-orders for it.

When Blizzard first announced that Diablo 3 would be arriving on the Xbox One, it was revealed that the game would only be playable in 900p resolution. Naturally this didn’t seem fair to Xbox One gamers since PS4 gamers got to enjoy the game in 1080p. However Blizzard later changed their minds and claimed that with a patch on day one, it would bump the game’s resolution to 1080p.
So who do you have to thank for the increase in resolution? While it might have seemed like it was Blizzard’s idea, it turns out it was thanks to Microsoft’s insistence that Blizzard finally managed to get the game to run at 1080p. This was revealed by Blizzard’s John Hight to Eurogamer where he said that Microsoft was not satisfied with the quality, thus forcing Blizzard’s hand.
