Xbox 360 Gets 250 GB HDD Upgrade

However, while the Japanese market will be able to pick up one of these from March 11, Microsoft has yet to name a release date for the U.S or Europe. In fact, the company hasn't even confirmed if the American or European markets will see the device at all.

Currently the largest capacity add-on available is 120GB. If this were available in the States, would you purchase one at the $170 price? Let us know in the comments below!

    Well at least its under $1 per gig, but no definitely not. Just a money grab for a company with plenty of money.

  • For $170? No...they really need to adjust the pricing on their HDD peripherals.

    Why does a video game need a hard drive? Maybe a little flash memory so it can remember where you are in a game or what your high scores are, but a big hard drive?

    why would they release this first in a market where no one is buying there console? they are going to have to bring it over here with DLC like assassins creed 2 being over 1GB. and i am sure DLC will require much more space in the future too.

    also do not forget that the xbox and PS3 are full fledged media centers now where you can download demo's, movies,tv shows and can also store your own video and audio on them too

    but why not get a PS3 and get a 2.5" 500GB - 1TB drive if your concerned that much about space

    OMG haven't they learned yet? And why would I want this device when I could get an external 1TB for half the price?

    Sadly, people will buy it, and MS will not get the message.

    M$ just wants our money. I don't understand the price, laptop HDDs of the same size are only $90. That's whats inside those plastic shells.

    it is sad. MS found a crowd that willingly put up with having to get there console that constantly fails so the same crowd will buy anything MS makes for it too.
