    Yeah read this earlier on Eurogamer and IGN too.

    €279 is great price considering extra controller, forza and that big ass 250GB hdd.

    My 120GB HDD is already full as most of my games I play are installed to drive, a 250GB HDD would be very handy, but I don't want to pay €150 for a drive on its own....

    Sounds like a great value! But I just wish MS would just let me install my own damn HD! Screw this proprietary crap, and forcing us to buy a top model just to get more storage space. :mad:

    Agreed. I may try and do the HDD mod this time when/if they release a 250GB HDD.

    Can't you connect an external hard drive to the USB ports?

    I mean, I don't because I use all of mine for computers, but you know. :p.

    I thought the game saves/games have to be installed on the actual hard drive, but the media can be on the external. That'd help a lot of people out instead of buying a new 360/Hard Drive.

    It's all about high profit margins and the willingness of people to pay.

    Except the main benefit for me and a lot of users since the new NXE was the ability to install our games to the hard drive. Faster loading, quieter machine, improved performance in a lot of games.

    You can't do that to an external HDD.

    As long as people are willing to pay, they will charge for it. Just like Xbox Live.
