Iomega introduced a portable hard disk drive pitched at the gaming console market called “Media Xporter Drive”. The cross-platform media storage solution is fully compatible with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, and allows users to transfer data between the personal computer and the high-end gaming consoles.
The new 160 GB Media Xporter Drive comes in an ultra-portable form factor and connects via the USB 2.0 ports built into both Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 gaming consoles. The drive is fully compatible with the two gaming consoles and comes bundled with software for converting file formats that are not natively supported by the gaming devices.
"The new Media Xporter Drive is a total solution from Iomega that includes software to convert most kinds of video formats for use with an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3," said Ralf San Jose, global product manager for HDD Products, Iomega Corporation.
The drive can be used either as an external storage source or as a swapping device between the personal computer and gaming consoles. Users can load the drive with their favorite PC content, then display it on the living-room wide plasma screen for enhanced image quality delivered by the 1080p HD resolution.
