    If Microsoft allowed xbox 360 uses to use External hard drives, Imagen a 4tb USB Drive on a 360. It would make for Cheaper xbox 360's as well. No internal HDD retail price £109 or less. Even a 500GB USB setup would be way cheaper than the cost of MS internal Drive now, The S model xbox 360 has 5 USB ports. 5x 4TB aftering formatting your looking around 19TB. Average xbox360 game install takes around 8GB over that Capacity your looking at 2375 Games Installed. Sweet. Plus if the internet uses theres 4TB drives everywhere it would give a hole new meening Internal access.
