Those wishing to have additional options for upgrading their Xbox 360’s hard drive should know that Microsoft will soon be offering the opportunity to do just that with a 500 GB one.
According to a product listing on the official Xbox website, the 500 GB drive will cost consumers $109.99 and pre-orders for the device will be “coming soon”.
The figure is pretty steep since you can usually find a 500 GB hard drive in the market for half that amount. That said, the $109.99 amount is still cheaper than the existing 320 GB hard drive upgrade option which costs consumers $129.99. It’s possible that with the release of the 500 GB option, the previous one will see to a price reduction.
Currently, the Xbox 360 is only available in either 4 GB or 250 GB variations. On the other hand the newer Xbox One console features a 500 GB internal drive from the get go and also has support for additional external storage. Not to mention a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare special bundle will feature an Xbox One console with a 1 TB hard drive.
Microsoft has been asked to clarify the inclusion of the new hard drive upgrade option. We’ll probably be hearing an official announcement in the next couple of days.
