I refuse to pay $160 for a 120GB Xbox 360 HDD. But I need one, as my 20GB model is filling up. So I decided to order a cheap one from a shady Hong Kong website. What a mistake.
Hey Microsoft, this isn't 1965. Computers don't take up entire rooms anymore. And hard drives are cheap.
A leaked email sent out to buyers at GameStop and Blockbuster shows three things that Microsoft will announce before or around E3 next week. One, there's a 60GB Pro console package coming. Two, there's a $99 60GB hard drive pack for Arcade and Core owners, which comes also with 3 months of Xbox Live, a wired headset…
You might not know this, but 120GB hard drives don't actually cost $180. Unless they're for the Xbox 360. The teardown fanatics at iSuppli attempted to find some method to this madness. As you can guess, the numbers don't quite add up to $180, but it actually gets a lot closer than you'd think.
