After being the first major retailer to release info on the PS3 Slim before Sony itself had announced the system, Amazon Germany is at it again, outing a 250GB Xbox 360 model for 280 euros ($379). An eagle-eyed Engadget tipster spotted the listing, which includes two wireless controllers and a copy of Forza Motorsport 3 in addition to the massively embiggened hard drive.

Since Forza 3 won't be hitting shelves until October 23 in Europe, it stands to reason that this listing represents a deal still a few months off, though Microsoft could very feasibly release this new SKU (sans accessories) earlier. On the subject of new Xbox bundles, Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg told us in an interview yesterday that, "I'm sure there will be different offers depending on where you go and what time of the year it is." Looks like we've found at least one bundle so far! We've contacted Microsoft for comment and will update this post when we know more.

Ok, but what does that have to do with this thread?

It relates to the overly expressed and exciting "Massive" HD drive. LOL. I found it strange as we are used to it as standard already for a long time. Also considering the fact that the requirement for a decent harddrive or even the need for one was always questioned in console comparisons and the real need for using one in a console.

But I am glad for you guys, really. I now just wonder about those who claimed that a harddrive is not required on a console (Arcade). :D

See everything change, even the old arguments. Now a Massive harddrive is the defacto requirement on a Xbox console too. Soon a BluRay or China HD Blu will be a defacto requirement.

PS: I got two wireless Sixaxis controllers with my bundle too. :eek:
