250Gb 360 HDD

Xbox Community Manager for the UK Graeme Boyd – aka AceyBongos – has tweeted that the standalone 360 250 Gb HDD will cost £65 when it gets here in the UK on April 16.

And yes, that means the 120Gb HDD, which is to get a price-cut to £80, will be more expensive.

Boyd said in a tweet: “You probably saw the announce of the 250GB Xbox HDD, but just to confirm: It is coming to UK/Europe, RRP is £64.99/99.99 Euro.”

He further added: “Lower the pitchforks and douse the torches – the 250GB does come with a data transfer kit. Sorry for the confusion.”

We’re checking in with Microsoft to see about the price differences with the HDDs.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Man – and I thought I scored a bargain for my 120GB last week from Argos (£59.99). Still I doubt I could’ve hanged on till April.

    Oh I heard the term quid from that movie the Full Monty and I thought it took place in Ireland. Thanks…so a quid is slang for 1 pound, like a buck to a US dollar. :D

    Oh well, the UK really think they are special don’t they.
