Microsoft will be releasing a matte black Xbox 360 console which comes standard with a 250GB hard drive. Housed in a matte plastic similiar to that of the original Xbox 360, you won’t have to put up with ugly fingerprint marks any longer.
I manage to keep mine clean without any hassle. But matte black does sounds sexy!
I have the matte black 4gb model and slapped a 250gb in it. Looks like I beat MS to it lol
It's actually cheaper too. $199 4g $99 250g HDD 254g Xbox 360 for $298 vs $299
@Wikkid666: WRONG!! Do not deceive people like that. I got the matte 4GB Xbox 360S for $199 off of Amazon and then got a 250GB HDD for $48 bucks! That's $247! It's way cheaper than your calculations.
Still cheaper regardless. I was pricing the MS HDD. Not an aftermarket knockoff.
yeah, the msrp of the 250 hd is 129, but amazon sell it for less than 100 always. Ive seen them selling it for real cheap but they have it at like 80 now I think. I wonder if MS will just sell a 60gb or something instead of 4 gb.
That's exactly what I did ! Amazon had a aawesome deal that allowed me to buy a 4GB console and a 250GB HDD separately ! Love it
@Wikkid666 actually MS is the real knockoff, it's the same as any other HDD with just a plastic casing with MS logo on it. and they sell it so much, they made you think it's some kind of special alien HDD from a different planet.
. What about an affordable HD upgrade??? How long can they get away with charging outrageous prices for their peripherals...O_o
People who support companies always buy their overpriced accessories. MS sells overpriced hard drives and thumbdrives. Sony sells over priced thumbdrives as well.
i wish they would have done this from the beginning. i always like the matte finish better.
follow the leader ;) I know this comment is going to backfire.
There's a matte black Wii? That's news to me
I'm assuming you mean that Microsoft have copied Sony with the matte finish even though MS had the matte finish for the 360 first while the PS3 was glossy, then Sony released the PS3 Slim which was matte and Microsoft released their 250GB model with gloss but also released the 4GB version with a matte finish and are now finally releasing the 250GB matte... so no, MS didn't copy anyone if that's what you're getting at.
haha, aeon got his feelings hurt.
Please show me where it looked like I got my "feelings hurt" in my comment. I was just pointing out why the original poster was wrong.
And where's the price cut!?
Where is the competition?
good one :) lolz
boom headshot. Lol good one
Probably won't get a price cut for a while. I think they will just continue changing the bundles. Bigger hdd, etc
I agree, Seriously, where is the price cut? 6 years later, the elite should be at $199.
I'm fine with my shiny version. Runs well and does not crap out on gaming binges. Just clean it once in awhile and it looks fine.
I prefer shiny things.
