Microsoft slashes price of 120GB Xbox HDD in Europe Microsoft has noted that it will be dropping the price of the 120GB Xbox 360 HDD in Europe, as well as releasing an external 250GB HDD for the console in Japan.
The 120GB drive will drop from 99.99 to 79.99, "while supplies last," with many expecting that a 250GB HDD release will come after all supplies are exhausted.

"Microsoft is now offering a standalone 250GB hard drive in Japan to provide consumers in Japan more storage options for their games and entertainment,"
says Microsoft. "We work closely with retailers to determine the best approach for our products on a region-by-region basis. In Europe, the 120GB hard drive is available for an ERP of 129.99 / 79.99 while supplies last. We also offer other storage options for consumers to choose from such as the Xbox Live 60GB Starter Pack that includes a 60GB hard drive, three-month subscription to Xbox LIVE, ethernet cable and wired headset for an ERP of 79.99 / 59.99."

I can get a 500GB HDD for a PS3, or for anything for that matter for only 60.

Uhh... Microsoft...

While I agree that Microsoft charges a premium for their HDD's and they really shouldn't, don't forget that the HDD's they use for the Xbox 360 are laptop HDD's and are considerably more expensive than the desktop HDD's that are routinely advertised.

You can still get a 500GB laptop harddrive and an external case for less money than microsoft charges for a 120GB.
