New Xbox 360 120GB HDD comes with a lot of conditions

So, a much bigger Xbox 360 hard drive is a good thing, right? Well ... not when it comes with some fairly crippling conditions. Wired has the skinny on some of the small print on Microsoft's new little "Elite" storage device:

Any data stored on the 20 GB hard disk will be automatically deleted after it is moved over

Any data stored on the 120 GB hard disk will be automatically deleted.

... Are you serious?

Awesome MS. First you rip off consumers with this $179 BS, now this?

Great, we bend over and now they're just adding sawdust as lube.

I can already see hundreds of thousands of 360 owners calling up Microsoft because all of their data disappeared during the transfer process, and Microsoft reps telling them "We apologize for the inconvenience, but our warranty does cover digital content. Please download again."

and still download all the stuff back on my 120 gig for free! You must not know much about XBOX LIVE. You can reload anything you want. If you purchase it, it is connected to your GamerTag. This is funny that you can even try and complain about this.

People disagreeing with facts again...that is so cute.

I was gonna buy the 120GB Hard Drive but i'm not too sure. Hmmmmmmm, i will wait on this one.

Why would buy a 120 gig harddrive if you don`t need the space. And if you buy a 120 gig drive then you don`t need two copies of the same data. Your gamertag data that is linked to it, is stored on-line. You can transfer that at will to any 360 if you don`t believe that then the whole account theft issue with xbox-live didn`t happen recently.So no one is forcing anyone to get the elite. Me I need the space. So I am getting it.

"And I see no point in going from 120 gigs to 20 gigs anyways...thats stupid." -ASSASSYN 36o

You are 100% correct. There is no point in going from 120GB to 20GB.

I have no need for a 120 gig HD so there is NO belly aching here.
