When you're Microsoft exec, it would seem you get some really cool exclusive hardware.
Nice.. only 320GB bigger than mine
Those HDDs don't exist for Xbox 360.... where the hec did he get that from?
I've had a 500gb HDD in my ps3 for a year. Quick, make a news article about it
Shadow Flare XD ur funny lol
well i have 320g in my PS3... wait i can upgrade my HDD!
does that make Major Nelson as Lucky as us ps3 owners?!
He has a DEVELOPMENT kit, that's not a retail 360. It will accept any sized HDD you put in it. Other things it can do - * Play "unsigned" code (that means it'll play anything that hasn't been approved by Microsoft, such as your own code or "patched" retail games) * Play games/apps straight from your PC using a USB connection * Access "PartnerNET". PNET is, basically, Xbox Live for 360 developers. Pre-release XBLA titles go up on it and if you're beta testing a 360 game before it hits retail consoles, this is where it gets played. It acts just like Xbox Live, but is a COMPLETELY separate system (so any gamerscore earned will never appear on Xbox.com, the "MajorNelson" profile on this console is NOT the same as the MajorNelson profile you can message on Xbox Live). Things it CANNOT do - Go on Xbox Live. Ever.
why not a "360"gb hdd.....? Ah heck, for all we know it could be a 500gb drive loaded with game installs. Nothing to get worked up about as we all know his unit is a dev/debug unit. It does lead one to believe that larger hdd's can be made available on a whim. 1tb FTMFW! edit: that case is sick...I need to get me one of those. All chromed and shiny would make my piano black PS3 look weak.
He's obviously retarded Probably trying to make a joke with the 20GB HDD's for 360's But somehow... managed to mess up subtracting 20 from 350 The poor kid
When he gets promoted to "Colonel" they're going to give him a 400Gb drive. Then it'll only be 100Gb less than the 500Gb drive in my PS3.
i dont get why some ignorants here make a damn drama about the HDD On my 360 elite hdd 120gb games and xboxlive content a damn ipod for my music and a damn 10gb usb for other stuff SO WHAT? Do i need more space? NO but hey i am not impressed that those complaining about HDD space are Sony loyalists. Anyway maybe they just do an update that let people use non xbox360 hdd for other contents. 360 have 3 usb ports remember? BUT seriously WHY you cry PS3 loyalists?
take a shower nerds http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Maybe because the "PS3 loyalists" know better and are completely shocked that anyone tries to justify Microsoft's pricing. "PS3 loyalists" know how much a 120GB HDD costs... or how much a 320GB HDD costs or how much a 500GB HDD costs. (Play.com - Wetern Digital 500GB HDD, £59.99, XBox 360 250GB Hard drive, £79.99) "360 loyalists" pay extortionate amounts for every add on (like, oh, a standard SATA lapop HDD in a plastic case - yep, 360 uses the same hard drives, you pay a premium for that there plastic case) and then have the gall to question "PS3 loyalists" over HDD prices? That's funny. Honestly, really funny. It's not "PS3 Loyalists" fault Microsoft are so short sighted they offered a console with no hard drive, a console with a 20Gb and expensive, propritary drives as the only upgrade option.
Why is everyone getting a hard on about a larger HDD? It is not like the new HDD is somehow gonna increase graphics fidelity or add some new functionality. You just have more space. But for what? Arcade games?
its not 350, its 320
Maybe arcade games is all you can use your 360's hard drive for but I got my 500gb hdd for my ps3's PlayTV unit. Because with it, i've recorded tons of shows off tv. Every football match of the season i've wanted to keep is sitting on my ps3, about 100 simpsons and family guy episodes just sitting on my ps3 etc. All of which I can just pop on my psp if I want. I got my hard drive just in case sony decided to release anything in the future that required lots of storage space and PlayTV has fit that criteria nicely. So yeah, I its really nice to have that much room
i think micrsoft was being serouis about digital distrubution over blu ray but what are they planning yes i know people have alot of stuff but know saves this many games to there hdd and still plays all over them lol
reasons been it would be expensive cos these hard drives ant just your average laptop hard drives for your ps3 etc these cost quite a bit of money for microsoft to make and its getting hard to fit more and more space in that size hard drive that microsoft make for the 360 microsoft wont admit it but sonys hard drive method for the ps3 is way better but microsoft make wayyyy more money on these bloody things thats why they stick with it... its all about the money
You have no idea what you speak of.
They're regular hard drives in a Microsoft case and connector, nothing special about them.
Moron, they are the same 2.5HDD the PS3 and laptops every where have used for a decade or more.
I dont even own a Xbox
grow the hell up little girls and get a life.
XGamer, why do you get upset so easily? are you THAT sensitive?
One post say's it's a 300 gig, and this one say's that it's a 350 gig, however I think that it's a 360 gig, 360 is only fitting:)
It don't matter until they make it avalible to the consumers. They should jump up to 500 gigs or a terabyte, then that might be impressive. Since you can get that much memory into a PS3 then you should be able to get that much for the 360.
Don't worry guys, it'll be released next week for £100.
No it won't. Seen the price for the 250gb?
only 350gb, and that is for an MS insider. lame,
...500GB one in my PS3!!! ;-P (I done it 2 years ago to!!!) ;-D
They should make an article about you.
Same here. I put a 500Gb drive in there for $100 almost a year back. These bots are waaaay behind times..
I seem to be the only one that doesn't care about bigger hard drives. Mine is 20 and it works just fine for what I use it for.
Since the option to install games on the HDD with NXE, i can't play disc games without installing them. It is just too nice not having to hear that terrible DVD drive. So, larger (and preferably cheaper) HDD's are of an interest to me, but it doesn't get that much use, so it isn't essential. But i have just re-bought a gold sub, so my HDD may start to fill up with some more XBLA games.
No you are not the only one I have a 120GB one and I only have like 18gb filled mostly made up of just game saves and a few arcade games and just one game installed. A 20GB one should be more than enough for most people if they don't plan on installing their games, buying DLC or arcade games which most are under 1 gb so that shouldn't be a problem, or buying full games from Games On Demand. I just don't see why most people would need that much space.
he confirmed it on twitter
It is probably a dev kit..
It's just a plain ole 2.5" SATA2 drive inside that thing. It'd be easy for MS to make dev drives with plug-in functionality (for any drive), but not sell them to the public. They sell you a proprietary drive + interface to make money. Its not some physical limitation of the 360 hardware. It's MS, trying to squeeze more money out of their customers. They don't want to sell you the HDD attachment that people like Major Nelson probably use. They want to sell you a locked-down attachment, with a HDD permanently attached to it, at a premium price. They don't want you upgrading on your own when you need a bigger drive, they want you to buy another overpriced 360 HDD. It's business, pure and simple. Companies do the same thing everywhere. Intel, for example, locks the clock multiplier on their chips, since the... Pentium II?, even though they could leave it free for user tuning. They'd lock the bus frequency too, if they had control over it. They want you to pay more for something most of their chips can do already.
dam aint that something sony does all this stuff to mak gamers happy and microsoft puts all there hard work to shame it makes me sad
i doubt he payed for it... those who do pay for it will not enjoy it as much as he will for sure xD still, 350 Gb is nice =) hopefully one day when needed i'll update my SATA drive to 500 Gb =) + why do people call him Major Nelson...isn't he old enough to be called by his real name??
I dont understand how this is possible unless he has diffrent fw the 360 only allows 20gb 60gb 120gb and 250gb.
Its a freaking dev kit we have already gone through this today: http://n4g.com/xbox360/News... Do some damn research you so called journalists Major Nelson even says so himself: http://twitter.com/majornel... That took me 2 seconds.
i've seen many comments on N4G (including yours now) with more work than half the articles here... its pointless to complain...they will just multiply =( people should report this stuff though...and MOD's should do their job and get rid of duplicate news, because it seems to be more common now days than ever before =/
major nelson is modder\hacker. lol
what do people expect Microsoft is going to give him, a 20 GB Xbox 360 Pro? Come on, get going. This is a dev kit.
I have a total of 310 on my PS3. To bad the cost of the 350G drive for my launch 360 will be close to the price of a new PS3
Well I have a 250GB HDD with around 21 games installed on it, and a bunch of arcade titles and still have a ridiculous amount of space. Not much need for anything bigger.
I have 6~7 games installed, and arcade and demos and have 163GB avail, in dont think one needs more than 250 as how many games can you play. No need to install whole library of games which you finished or dont want to play anymore.
Yes, I have 120 gig and haven't gotten it full in almost 3 years, tought I have cleaned it (old demos, etc.) from time to time. Media I just stream straight from my PC, to my X0, no need for storage space for that too.
I got 250GB on my ps3. I bought it for $80.00 Dollars.
had' em for $50.
wow i have a 500 one to
Eithier that or My guess would be they prob have options on Dev machines and reg machines to keep every demo needed to review test etc, so im sure their HDs are prob bigger
PS3 fans are attention seeking childrens... They cant just leave the Xbox New Section... Notice how a article about Xbox HDD's change topic to how much they enjoy their consoles -.-
For the love of god Major Nelson commented that it is a development kit harddrive... http://www.flickr.com/photo...
yesterday (or earlier today, whatever) there was a story on how Sony "failed" at some event because batteries in a move wand was out; big stinkin' deal. Now this garbage pops-up.
He should have had a 360GB 360. That 360 looks rad(our generation still says that right?). Wish there were a PS3 like that, Bastards.
I have 500 Billion dust particles on my PS3.
I have no dust particles on my Xbox But i think it's rotting in my bin
I would have more the a gigallion on my 360 but the jet inside it stops that... it's a shame it also stops me using the 360 and doesn't stop RRod.
You know you can mod the xbox hdd and put in your own right?
Could get my PC up to 12TB (6 on board SATA II) Could get this for £111.50 http://www.ebuyer.com/produ... Could get my PS3 up to 640GB Could get this for £81.31 http://www.ebuyer.com/produ... Why would it cost me £97.86 to go from 20GB to 120GB on Xbox 360 (I have the 120GB BTW) ATM I have 1560GB on my PC, I have 160GB on my PS3, I have 120GB on my 360, I have 2GB SD on my Wii, I have 2GB MS on my PSP and Getting 2GB SD for my DSi
Is this the part where I congratulate you, or is this where I drop my pants and flash my giant e-penis too?
What is your point? Just stating Microshaft is ripping off its User base
People actually enjoy PS3s? Oh dear
Yeah.... Life outside of the closet is very different...
