i use that many right now not counting when i connect usb memory sticks and hard drives to my xbox 360

my turtle beach x32 takes one and my dss2 takes another and charge cable for when controller battery is low

this isnt an issue on my 360 s cause it has 5 usb but the xbox one only has 3 this wont be enough

Self-powered USB 3.0 hub should do the trick nicely in theory. I intend on having my external HDD plugged in as well as my Turtle Beach headset and a controller. If I have a friend over playing a fighting game with an arcade stick I'll have to either use a hub or unplug my HDD. Or maybe MS will take forever to give us the HDD support and it'll be a non-issue.

Either way, it sounds exciting.

I'm more bummed that they have 2 in the back and one on the side. I'd like to have at least one up front in case I need to switch some stuff around.

Your headphones and that 360 controller can be plugged into any USB port, it doesn't have to be your Xbox 360.

Next gen, the controller will need to be plugged into the console becuase when the controller connects with USB it turns off the WIFI and connects via USB, unlike this gen Xbox where it still connects over WIFI.

Oh my, now I was really worried...
I misread CapwnD's post and thought that he said that a normal wired Xbox 360 controller communicated with the system over WiFi so it could be plugged into whatever USB port you want.

Nope, I'm not making that mistake! I'm a proponent of wired controllers for certain games.

Next Xbox the USB connection will disable the WIFI and make it a true wired controller, but not this xbox.

My friend thought I was crazy when I told him you can never have enough USB ports a few years ago. Now I make total sense to him lol. On my computer anyway.

Yeah I agree.

It's nice having a few powered hubs, and powered USB outlets when you need to just plug stuff in for power.
