SanDiskSanDisk Cruzer Crossfire USB drive : Building on its strong entry into the handheld gaming market with high-capacity flash memory cards, SanDisk Corporation today introduced a gaming-oriented USB smart drive, the SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire, to serve the needs of console and PC video gamers. The announcement was made at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), in Las Vegas, U.S.A. The SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire will be available in four color-coded capacities: 512 megabytes (MB) in green, 1 gigabyte (GB) in white, 2GB in black and 4GB in blue. The drive comes with an attractive metallic lanyard that attaches to a snap-on cap. When connected to a USB-enabled device, the Crossfire’s indicator light pulses lime-green.

Apart from consoles, personal computer gaming also can make use of smart drives to save game levels, previews and interactive game content, according to Christina Day, SanDisk’s senior manager of product marketing for gaming cards and flash drives. In that vein, the SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire is U3-enabled, thus providing a platform to store a variety of applications, including PC games (U3 functionality is not supported under Mac OS (any version)). And the U3 user interface, called the U3 Launchpad, is specially designed for gamers, said Day.

“The new gaming consoles, with their impressive graphics, are more than just gaming devices, they are multimedia centers,” said Nelson Chan, SanDisk executive vice-president and general manager. “As such, people can also use them to view their digital photos and play digital music, and a smart drive is a fast and convenient way to access this content.”

Microsoft’s recently released Xbox 360 features three USB ports. And early announcements from both Sony and Nintendo have indicated that their next-generation game consoles, PlayStation3 for Sony and Revolution for Nintendo, will also support USB connections when the consoles go on sale next year. For owners of the Microsoft Xbox 360 console, the SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire can be used to play digital music tracks and show digital still images on any television set that is connected to an Xbox 360. Also, gamers can use the SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire to transfer home wireless network settings from a PC to the Xbox 360.

Suggested retail prices for the SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire are $54.99 for 512MB, $99.99 for 1GB, $169.99 for 2GB and $329.99 for 4GB. The gaming drive will be sold in many of the 135,000-plus retail outlets worldwide where SanDisk products are available.
