Microsoft is bumping up the size on the external hard drive accessory for the Xbox 360 to 250 GB. The downside? It's only available in Japan...so far.
Normally only sold as a part of a bundle with a new Xbox 360 gaming console, interested gamers will have the option to buy the larger hard drive as a stand-alone accessory.
Set to be release in Japan on March 11, the new storage space key will cost ¥15,540 ($172.10)
Right now, the Xbox 360 Elite has the largest HDD capacity at 120 GB. All of that extra space would be great for downloading content (TV shows, movies, games, etc.) from the Xbox Live Marketplace, so maybe Microsoft should get cracking on shipping this accessory across the Pacific.
