The 250GB hard drive supplied with the new 250GB Xbox 360 S will be available to buy separately, GamerZines can reveal.
Well since the 4GB slim is $200, this will cost well over $100. My guess will be $150.
then you get ripped of big style all you Need for hdd is 1. $2.19 http://cgi.ebay.com/120GB-H... 2. $46 http://www.amazon.com/Seaga... 3. now follow a guide to get the hard drive work with 360 takes about 5-10mins. yep its cheaper get 250gb like that then get 20gb you just got ripped big style.
Why in the world would you buy a 20GB HD? That was a bad move dude. Good luck coming up with $100 to replace it when that 60GB HD fills up in 3months.
Who in their right mind would buy a 20gb HDD? For anything?
Yes indeed the HDD will cost a lot! But if nothing else, people can get the 4 Gb and use their own flash drives. Simply put, 4Gb (internal) + 16Gb (8x2 external)= 20Gb!
Actually, its 4gigs(internal flash), 32gigs usb jump drive(8x4 or 16x2)...on paper 36gigs total.
"Actually, its 4gigs(internal flash), 32gigs usb jump drive(8x4 or 16x2)...on paper 36gigs total." Actually, for real this time... 16gb is the maximum external space you can use. 1x16, 2x8. 20gb total. Right from xbox.com "Why does Xbox 360 only support 16GB of storage, even though I have a much larger device? Supporting USB storage devices up to 16GB in size is a huge increase in storage over any solid state memory storage solutions currently available for Xbox 360. Users that need more storage have options in the Xbox 360 hard drives, which are available for purchase separately."
probably only need 20GB too. I already have a PS3 as my primary console and because of that, I have no intention of paying for XBOX LIVE. Also, there are about 3 or 4 exclusive franchises I truly want....MASS EFFECT, FABLE, GEARS OF WAR. There might be a couple more, but that's all I can come up with at the moment besides a couple XBOX LIVE Arcade titles. The point is, 20GB would work fine for me. Also, a few people on CRAIGSLIST sometimes sell 20GB HD's for about 30 bucks or so. Here's one for $25: http://sfbay.craigslist.org...
I was wrong, and someone PMd me my mistake... http://majornelson.com/arch... That stats that you CAN have two devices enabled for a maximum of 32gb flash/usb drive space I could have swore that right when they announced flash/usb support, that the max was 16. My apologies. Good to know though!
You see, he's not a PS3 fanboy anymore. Look, he even wrote a blog about it. "Getting past the fanboy and back to the fan". Past the fanboy and back to the fan, now back to me, now back to the fanboy, now back to me again. Sadly he's a fanboy. But if he stopped trolling 360 articles and switched to writing constructive comments he could look like a non-fanboy. I'm on N4G.
one million dollars! nice 1 ab
4 people clicked on Action Bastard's disagree button. look again. those people are now diamonds!
You giving people advice on "not being a fanboy" is hilarious.
Because paying $5-600's for a game console that took years to see it's potential is the real way to get that money! Ass.
Paying $400 for the 360 when it came out, that took years for it's potential to come to fruition is the realy way to get that dough. Nice you like to resort to personal attacks. Shows how much of an E-thug you are.
that's like farting in a lift: it's wrong on so many levels
because paying $400 for a 360 that never really reach its potential cuz it died 3 months later its the real way to get that money
i don't even want to know what this will cost.
With no real relevant information like a release date much less pricing. How is this news? You'd also think, maybe, that since MS is putting out this 4GB Core slim they'll offer smaller "cheaper" HDD.
Applause. bubbles. Kudos. And yet, our comments only make the story hotter :-/
chances are it wont. Regardless of proprietary design, I think a 60 or 80gb on the low should be made. Maybe even a 120gb to coincide with a 250 or possibly a 320gb. Pricing would obviously be an issue unless due to the change in enclosure design they could make the drive closer to reasonably priced equivalents. People dont realize that under a proprietary format, you are guaranteed 100% compatibility. I recently upped the 80gb in my ps3 to a 160gb but i had to shop around for certain parameters (rotational speed, noise, heat, cache, access times, etc). You dont have to worry about that stuff when buying a 360 hdd. You just have to worry about how much it will suck from your wallet.
"you are guaranteed 100% compatibility" Thats does not justify the very high costs for a xbox HDD. Also i've never used those parameters for a PS3 HDD, just size.
Sorry, but I LOL-ed at that. I wouldn't be surprised if they took out the older HDD from their housings, put them in the new ones, and jacked *up* the price a fraction. Also, so long as someone knew the perimeters - read old HHDs, never heard of anyone having issues with general drives on the PS3.
Onry 400 dorrars! Onry fo you!
I think that Engrish would work better with a Japanese company.
we all know it will be expensive
169.99 that's my guess
By the hairs on your balls MS has you. They're going to charge a premium owner of PS3 w/500GB HD @ElementX You're right about that, vote with your wallets people.
If you don't want it, don't buy it. owner of PS3, 360S, and Wii
well NO SHIT!!!! who would've ever thought!!!!
if the 120 HDD was 200, 250 will probably be 300-400.
was the 120 seriously 200? lol <3 ms
The 250GB HDD was $129.99. Newtype is talking out of his ass. http://www.xbox.com/en-us/h... I paid that for mine when they were first available for the 360.
Actually, when it was first released, the 120GB was $199.
At least 600 bucks.
I think we pretty much new this already when the 360 S was released. How is this news and why did it get approved?
Because this is N4G my good sir ;)
Just because it's obvious doesn't make it not news.
I'm still debating if I should pop a new hdd in my PS3? right now Newegg has a 320gb for $40 with $1 shipping!! http://www.newegg.com/Produ...
just spend an extra 20$ on this http://www.newegg.com/Produ...
250 gig xbox s = $300 4gb Arcade xbox s with 250 add on hdd = $400 uh what? why?
I got a 250gb off ebay for $60 new
On topic they will most likely over price this product way to high $150 or $120 id say
250GB laptop drive is going for about 50 dollars these days. If they are charging much more than that, they are trying to screw you.
I need too get this and a flash drive. Ive got a 20gig hdd, I need too upgrade fast.
don't buy it. Send MS a message.
The 250GB HDD was $129.99 for the old 360. http://www.xbox.com/en-us/h... I paid that for mine when they were first available for the 360. I doubt it will be more than that. Still expensive I know, but don't believe what the Sony fanboys tell ya $400, not so much.
really, I remember it was $200 here in Canada when it first came out. Now it's down to $170. http://www.futureshop.ca/en... $160 of your looking at the Xbox.ca site but seeing as they don't sell the products themselves that leaves you back to square one: http://www.xbox.com/en-CA/h...
Goddammit I am pissed that MS didnt make a HD standard, its so effing RETARDED. Besides RROD, this is the worst design choice they could have made, because the Arcade has gimped many a game. I still cant figure out why it is they could make it standard for the 1st Xbox, but not the 360.
And anything above $100 will be raping the consumer.
It's 2010 Microsoft, act like it.
And it'll be at *least* $100, versus a real-world non-proprietary $40-50 bucks. Despicable. I don't understand what they were thinking. If you're not going to make it a standard feature for your console, at least make it generic. (E.g. It would make more sense for a proprietary HD to be in a console that comes with one as a standard component.)
