Just when we started believing that the 20GB Xbox 360 drives were big enough to satisfy, along comes the best evidence yet of more spacious disk appendages. Microsoft hasn't officially let the kitty out of the bag, but Plaid Ninja snapped this screenshot at the Xbox Live event tonight. It shows 70 gigs of free space on a 360. If the timing is to coincide with the new download service, we're talking about seeing these things before Q4 is up. Question: How will we transfer games from one HDD to the upgraded drive?

How do you screw over somebody who paid extra for the premium system or bought a $100 20gig HD?

Tell him he has to throw that 20gig hard drive away because there's a bigger better one out now for his console, and there's no way to use two simultaneously.

Seriously, if this happens, even if it's an improvement it really screws over a lot of people. Consoles are not supposed to evolve in a way that makes older add-ons into trash.

Why don't they just start selling an XBox 360 in a year that has an internal HDDVD drive that can be used for games? Just make everybody with throw their old 360 away and buy the new one if they want to play the new HDDVD games. More profit for Microsoft, and for the low low price of not finalizing the specs of the machine until 2 years after launch! hooray!
