Microsoft: 250Gb Xbox 360′s are for bundles only

Friday, 12th February 2010 20:46 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Aaron Greenberg has revealed that the 250Gb hard drive on Xbox 360 is to remain exclusive to bundled consoles.

“We’re always evaluating, but for now we feel like the 120 is serving us very well as the standard offering, and then having the 250 as a limited edition is a good balance,” he told Joystiq. “”That said, we understand that game demos [and] a lot of the game add-on content does take up space.”

This reiterates what a Microsoft spokesperson told us earlier in the month, when it was revealed that a 250Gb HDD would be offered in Japan. We were told there were no plans to make the offer available elsewhere.

As far as limited edition bundles were concerned, he seemed happy that one for FFXIII was on offer.

“We did it with the Modern Warfare bundle, which, as people know, was a huge success, completely sold out,” he said. “We’re excited to bring it back with the limited edition Final Fantasy bundle.”

Guess we’ll just have to clean our drives more often then, unless we want to buy a second console.

    First off blackdreamhunk go stuff your “Reliable” PC up your arse! You keep trolling this site spewing PC crap and flaming. ENOUGH. Go fuck yourself! I’m ignoring your sorry arse from now on!

    Anyhow, MS should eliminate the 120GB model and make the 250GB the standard or make the 120GB cheap and make the 250 the high end option. Nuff said. Fuck this bundle BS.

    AHA-Lambda because the gaming Industry is a nice dictorship!

    they hate the truth and freedom of speech

    why because they are afriad of people like me who are really smart.

    They like to lie to their massies not tell them the turth

    like for exmaple pc gaming dying every year.

    they like having companies like lucas arts telling force unlueach can’t run on your company

    So comapnies like sony and microsoft can say to people, game devs publisher jump this high when they tell them too.

    this is bullshit, M$ should sell the 250gb HDD as a stand alone item and not bundle it with a fucking console, or at least bundle in with a game like Monster Hunter Frontier or FFXIV

    itsucks sorry to tell you this but i have to
    As far as it’s somewhat ammusing how jealous you are and your fanboyism shows to be threatened(by pointing something specific with every comment you make)it starts getting irritating
    you should at least comment on something you like on the system you like to hide this ;)

    MS are really throttling their consumers by not allowing them to get 250Gb hdds outside of bundles.
    Why take this move?
    They’ve stopped people using thrid party ones, and now this?

    Let’s see, if you want a large HDD you need to get rid of your current console and buy a new one.

    Is this the best way they can make money?

    And BDH. How about spending some of your time learning to spell and the facts of life eh? Reading your posts makes my head hurt as I cannot understand how the education system failed someone so horribly.

    “I’m really getting fucking sick of this. Why isn’t this asswipe banned already?!”

    Because he’s not actually breaking any rules. Having an opinion isn’t a bannable offence.

    Actually I’ll think you’ll find he’s insulted a few members of the site quite a few times (albeit lightly).

    I understand that he is entilted to his opinion, but must he be so evangelical about it?!

    Soon this place will need comment controls like on most other sites. EG, joystiq, kotaku. It’s alright saying, it’s not bannable but please allow a reasonable discussion within the comments without witnessing such tripe.

    case in point: itsucks. That comment should be downranked to oblivion. It’s not informative, ontopic, sensible, It’s actually offensive (raped, poo etc).

    It’s unfortunate but true.
    It’s a shame that the majority if reasonable and interesting posts are overshadowed by this dribble.
