250 GB Xbox 360 is Modern Warfare 2 Edition

With the Xbox 360 Elite being the 'elite' option that's now mainstream at $299, where's the top-tier SKU for those who want to be better than the rest?

We've seen rumors of an Xbox 360 with 250 GB hard drive coming in to replace the Elite's previous $399 price point – and today we know that something definitely will be coming in.

Launching in November, along with Modern Warfare 2, will be a "Limited Edition" Xbox 360 with a 250 GB hard drive that will pack together two wireless controllers and a standard edition of Modern Warfare 2 for $399.99.

    Seems to me console makers are just going for money. It is sort like dvd's and such. You can get the regular dvd, or wait and get the unrated dvd, or wait some more and get the special edition dvd. Same seems to go for games and now looks like consoles are jumping on board. If you wait long enough you might get what you want of course wait to long and the new generation will be here. I guess it would just be nice to have a standard and then a all the options choice, and not a standard and wait, maybe, could be, better option.

    They said they're not releasing the 250 in a standalone. I call BS though, just give it 3 months.

    With the ~$60 pricetag of the game, that comes out to $40 for 130 GB of extra space. That actually seems like a reasonable amount to charge.

    Actually, I like the paint job... I think it's pretty slick. I do, however, wish Microsoft would just let us put whatever size harddrive WE want on the thing.

  • Most games are unscaled to 720, they are only 480.

    Also what happens when the games done and dusted or you grow out of it, the console is painted in MW2 camo lol.
