320GB Xbox 360 Hard Drive: Get more for your money later this month
By Kevin Douglas Femmel
(Oct. 12 2011) — If you own a 4GB Xbox 360, which you most likely bought to play Kinect games then you’re in luck. If you haven’t already added a 250GB HDD to your 360, later this month you will be able to do so and get more storage space as well as a good game for all ages. In just a few weeks Microsoft will replace the current $130 250GB HDD for the Xbox 360 with a bigger 320GB HDD, and it will include a free download of Lego Star Wars III from the Games on Demand marketplace. The game retails for $20, so while you aren’t getting a huge value it is a solid platformer for everyone in the family. The new 320GB HDD bundle will retail for $130, thus forcing the price of the 250GB HDD down if you’re not interested in 70GB extra or the game.
I guess this nullifies any chance of Microsoft releasing another Lego/(Insert another title) bundle with the $200/$300 SKUs this fall. No word on when, or if Microsoft will stop putting 250GB HDDs in the $300 model and add 320GB HDD to the mix.
