The company has packaged a 250GB drive with various special edition consoles in the past, but this marks the first time it will be sold as a standalone add-on. Avid gamers will surely welcome the extra storage space, as the Xbox 360 Elite only ships with a 120GB hard drive, which is quickly consumed by installing games, DLC, demos, and other downloadable media.
Unfortunately, the company is still overpricing its storage accessories. A 2.5-inch 250GB 5400RPM/7200RPM OEM drive costs $50 to $70 e-tail, so Microsoft charges quite a premium for its gigabytes.
It isn't clear if or when the 250GB drive will land in North America and Europe.
