Standalone 250GB Hard Drive Confirmed For North America

120GB now available "while supplies last."

March 23, 2010 - Microsoft has confirmed the launch of a standalone 250GB hard drive for the Xbox 360 in North America. The drive is on sale starting today, according to the company. The upgraded hard drive will retail for $129.99.

Microsoft would not confirm the discontinuation of the 120GB hard drive, only saying the price has been reduced to $99.99 "while supplies last." Reports of short supply seem to suggest it may not be around much longer, however.

The upgraded hard drive was originally an exclusive pack-in for the Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 bundle. Japan was the first region to receive the standalone 250GB drive.
