XNA Game Wants To Measure Your Stick

…your USB stick that is. Or really, any other USB storage device you can plug into your Xbox 360.


Behold, Device Hero. With online leaderboards that rank you based on the speed of your USB devices. The game even includes a “brag” feature that lets you boast about the quality of your storage media. Device Hero will set you back 240 Microsoft Points.


The game’s developer, yaystuff, have actually developed something similar in the past for the Xbox Live MarketplaceOverscan Sniper HD, a “game” of sorts that helps you fix the overscan on your HDTV.

    Why would you pay 240 MS points for this when you can easily just google the USB Stick or Portable Hard Drive information online…?

      Good point, and another question from the same cathalogue:
      Why pay for Gold/Plus memberships just to play online games peer to peer instead on dedicated servers.

        Peer to peer is better than dedicated servers in my book because you can still play online as long as someone else is playing! Dedicated servers get shut down.

    They could at least use the monster rancher route by generating *something* with different sticks.

    The exFAT file system doesn’t work with the Xbox 360 (Strange, because Microsoft created it… and patched in support for it in Windows XP), so it’s not really worth using a flash drive with one.

    240 points? Really? Are you f-ing kidding me?
