120GB Xbox 360 in April?

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the long-rumored update to the Xbox 360 will ship by April. According to GamersReports, an "inside source" has informed them that Microsoft wants the Australian chain Myer to prepare for a 360 with 120GB hard drive and an HDMI port. A new piece of information is that the color of the upgrade should be black, which (if true) would conflict with the current all-white accessories.

The timing of the upgrade would not be coincidental. Sony's Playstation 3 will finally release in Australia on March 23rd, and Microsoft may be worried that the greater storage and HD capabilities of the PS3 will lure customers away. It may also be a necessary step for Xbox Live users, since Microsoft's Video Marketplace can rapidly fill the existing 20GB 360 hard drive. The price of the new console is expected to be $749 AU ($583 US).
