"Here's the Finger, Folks." Microsoft On Buying Standalone 250GB HDD
Ouch. Even I felt that one. Those of you who’ve been aware of the new Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360 will no doubt have heard about the super-sized HDD that it will contain – the 250GB Hard drive. With the announcement of this bundle, folks everywhere were cheering in satisfaction in knowing that Microsoft finally upped the size of their meager HDDs… and everyone and their mother was expecting to get their hands on one. Well, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it seems like you’re getting a “Fuck you” and a “have a nice day” from Microsoft.
Microsoft has clarified that the 250GB Xbox 360 hard drive will not be sold on its own.
This hard drive is not being sold separately,” said Larry Hryb (pronounced Herb), boss of Xbox Live, during a short video on Kotaku.
