PC peripherals firm Sandisk has released its first Xbox 360 branded USB memory drives in North America.

As spotted by VG247, the devices come in two flavours – an 8GB variant for $34.99 and a 16GB version for $69.99.

Microsoft added the ability to use any USB mass storage device on Xbox 360 in a firmware update released last month. Users are now able to save a whole host of data types on external devices including gamertags, games installs and DLC.

The Sandisk drives come pre-formatted for use on the console and also include the said firmware update for those who don't have their consoles connected online. Also included is a one month Xbox Live Gold membership code.
