Confirmed: Microsoft will be selling a 250GB drive separately: "
Despite repeated statements to the contrary, the rumors are true: Microsoft will be selling a 250GB hard drive separate from a console. Better news, the drive is available today at your favorite retailer.
Microsoft revealed the news via the accessories section of the Xbox Dashboard, so it’s not clear if this was intentional, or if someone made an error. Either way, the 250GB drive is available today, and selling for $129.99 and your favorite retailer or online. A bit steep for a drive this size, but since you can only buy one from Microsoft, you don’t have much choice.
