Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Gets a 250 GB External Hard Drive For $129.99

March 23, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

Japanese Xbox 360 owners have had the ability to expand their consoles’ memory through an external 250 GB hard drive for some time now – and starting today, those of us in the rest of the world can get to enjoy the same functionality too.

The new hard drive was first showcased at the Xbox 360 Dashboard, though it wasn’t accompanied by any specific information. Just now, Microsoft have released some details on the device, stating that it’ll be priced at $129.99, and should already be available for purchase at some stores.

However, it seems kind of hard to get your hands on one yet, as Amazon for example are stating that they’ll have it available starting March 28th.

The hard drive comes with a transfer cable as well, so it should have everything you need to get it running.

All of this should come as great news to those who were disappointed with the alleged memory limitations that the Xbox 360’s external storage drives were supposed to have.
