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

Wikkid6662664d ago

It's actually cheaper too.

$199 4g
$99 250g HDD

254g Xbox 360 for $298 vs $299

Convas2664d ago


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.

Wikkid6662664d ago

Still cheaper regardless.

I was pricing the MS HDD. Not an aftermarket knockoff.

Solidus187-SCMilk2664d ago

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.

HungPHATx2664d ago

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

chaos-lockheart2664d ago


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

Boletarian2664d ago

People who support companies always buy their overpriced accessories.

MS sells overpriced hard drives and thumbdrives.

Sony sells over priced thumbdrives as well.

RyuDrinksTheDew2664d ago

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

Adexus2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

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.

Adexus2664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

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.

ghaleon19802664d ago

And where's the price cut!?

gamingdroid2664d ago

Where is the competition?

newleaf2664d ago

boom headshot. Lol good one

Wikkid6662664d ago (Edited 2664d ago )

Probably won't get a price cut for a while. I think they will just continue changing the bundles. Bigger hdd, etc

etowntwo2664d ago

I agree,

Seriously, where is the price cut?

6 years later, the elite should be at $199.
