It's now official after being rumoured for so long the Stand Alone 250GB HD is now available to buy.
Microsoft repeatedly said that the 250GB HD would only be available in Special Edition Xbox 360 bundles such as the Final Fantasy XIII or Modern Warfare 2 bundles. Now however Major Nelson has let us all know that you can buy it on it's own starting right now.
Sadly it's far to expensive coming in at $129.99 basically the cost of a Xbox 360 arcade, and why would you need 250GB?
Anyway you can purchase one from Amazon using this link, and you can also check out the full press release below.
