Xbox 360 Gets 250GB Standalone HDD Upgrade

The decision to sell the HDD as a stand-alone comes as quite a surprise. Microsoft has said in the past that it would be keeping the 250GB HDD exclusive to bundles, like the ones offered for MW2 and Splinter Cell. Though it's expensive, it's good news for those who are desperate for a storage upgrade and willing to pay through the nose for it.

Just as an FYI, it seems the 120GB HDD may not be around for much longer. Joystiq cites Microsoft as saying the drive is available for $99.99 "while supplies last."

Any takers?

    250Gb for 129.99$ is outrageous, my PS3 has a 320Gb Scorpio Black that was priced at 75.00$ w/ free shipping ... What MS has to do is create a side panel that will allow sata drives to be swaped, this way users that have a 360 no longer have to buy that bulky overpriced HDD. Not exactly rocket science..

    I don't get this. Standalone 250gb hdds have been available in South America for several months now. And these are not mock ups, they are the real thing from Microsoft.
