Microsoft Releases Stand-alone 250GB Detachable Hard Drive
Microsoft announced the release of the standalone detachable 250 GB hard drive for its console Xbox 360.
The latest version can only be purchased previously in a console bundle such as with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Final Fantasy XIII. It will be bundled next to the upcoming Splinter Cell: Conviction.
The announcement came as a surprise after Microsoft previously stated that the 250GB will only be sold via console bundles.
Buyers will have to shell out $129.99 for the hard drive. That is actually cheap if considering that the 20GB version was initially sold at 100 dollars while the 120GB initially carried a price of $179.99 which was lowered to $129.99. With the same price tagged at the new 250GB, the 120GB version cost was further reduced to $99.99.
The standalone version is already being sold in Japan for the last few weeks. It will come to the United Kingdom on April 16 at a cost of 79.99 pounds.
