100GB Xbox 360 hard drive

Microsoft has used its X06: Korea event to announce a new hard drive for the Xbox 360, Game Inside reports. The expanded drive will be a sizable 100GB; that's 40GB larger than the one in Sony's top-end Playstation 3 console (due in the US November 17th), and five times larger than the drive presently available for the 360. The new device should ship as an optional accessory sometime in March of 2007. Players use these hard drives to store everything from music to downloaded game demos on their systems. Some gamers have complained about the current 360 drive, noting that 20GB is rather low in an era of 1GB demos and 30GB iPods.
