Default Seperate 250 gig 360 HDD coming soon?

It looks like MS is replacing the 120 with it. May want to hold off on that FFXIII bundle, Jake.

Anyone dolefully eyeing up a Special Edition Super Elite Xbox 360 and its 250GB hard drive - but is already in possession of a perfectly functioning console - will be happy to learn that GameStop has started listing a seperate standalone 250GB HDD for sale.

The 250GB HDD was previously exclusive to Special Limited Xbox 360 Bundles such as the ones released for Forza 3, Modern Warfare 2, Final Fantasy XIII and the planned Splinter Cell: Conviction Special Edition.

What's more, the standalone HDD add-on is most reasonably priced at just $129.99. This seems like incredibly generous pricing given that the 120GB hard drive was previously tagged at 149.99. Either Microsoft has gone mad, or they're adopting a fresh, more benevolent outlook.

We'd personally plump for the former.

GameStop has a 23rd March date attached to the 250GB HDD.

Here's the listing:

I would buy a 250GB drive for $129. Especially if it comes with the transfer kit.

Considering the past...it is.

But, you can get 1tb for about $150 or less.

Yeah, they probably should have said "More reasonable".

That said, I might go for this. I only really use about half of my 120 though.

I'm personally down to the last 15gb of my 120gb.

Or you can just buy a 250GB drive and do it yourself for $30. As it is, it's at around a 400% markup.
