Int’l Xbox 360 Hard Drive Watch 2010: EU cuts 120GB price

We’ve been watching the Xbox 360 Hard Drive situation. After that Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 bundle came out, we were sure a 205GB separate drive would be released. But it didn’t come. Later, Aaron Greenberg gave us a bit of hope for one. Last week, Xbox Japan announced that they would get the 250GB drive for over $170. Now here’s one more sign pointing in that direction: a price drop on the 120GB.

While the 250GB is not confirmed for Europe, a price drop of the 120GB is. It goes down from £99.99 to £79.99 while supplies last, which may indicate that MS is making shelf space for larger drives.

This quote is less encouraging:

Microsoft is now offering a standalone 250GB hard drive in Japan to provide consumers in Japan more storage options for their games and entertainment,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer. “We work closely with retailers to determine the best approach for our products on a region-by-region basis.”

Still, I think it’s coming. I just hope it’s priced for one on a blogger’s salary.
