You know how Microsoft kept saying that the 250GB hard drive will only be available in special bundles for the Xbox 360? Well, either they were lying or they changed their mind because Joystiq has a shot
of the dashboard showing that the product will be available soon. Pricing isn't announced yet and Amazon has a listing
as well so it should be soon that you can grab this drive if you need more space without having to buy a whole new system. I'm happy Microsoft decided to let this one be available without a need to purchase a bundled system, but we all know it won't be priced reasonably when it is released.
-Update - The drive will officially be $129.99, still a little expensive than it should be though.
