Xbox 360 250GB at Amazon

Amazon Germany today renewed talk of a new high-end Xbox 360 by posting a listing for an Elite with a 250GB hard drive. The system's 280 Euro ($400) price lines up with that of the Elite before the recent price cut and also bundles in an extra wireless gamepad as well as the as-yet unreleased Forza Motorsport 3. No clues are included as to the release date or whether there are any other significant changes, though a hardware update isn't likely besides the added storage.

The store entry follows just days after the FCC gave away the existence of a 250GB slim PS3 and indicates that neither Microsoft nor Sony is likely to remain content with a $300 system as its best console. Storage upgrades have been a regular staple of the current console generation and have been spurred on by features like partial or complete game installs as well as larger downloadable titles and movie services.

    No HDMI Cables.

    I read on Kotaku that the new "elite" is not going to be bundled with HDMI Cables so that is an added cost.
