250GB Xbox 360 Looking More Likely

One listing for a 250GB Xbox 360 could be an accident. A typo. But two in two days, on opposite ends of the planet, well, that's something else.

This is an ad from South African retailer BT Games, showing a "Super Elite" Xbox 360 that packs a 250GB HDD. Interesting. Certainly makes the German version seem a lot less like an error and a lot more like a genuine product.

Perhaps even more telling than the South African listing, however, is Microsoft's response to yesterday's Amazon Germany reveal. Asked for comment on the supposed leak, Microsoft did not respond with their customary "We don't comment on rumours and speculation", instead telling Kotaku "We've made no such announcement".

No, you haven't. A couple of retailers have made it for you!

    250gb and an extra controller.. does that make up for blu-ray, wireless and rechargable controllers????

      No, but on the plus side you get a console with more than half a dozen games! Zing!

    i've got 30gb free on my 120gb.. i'd love a 250gb.. but hate to think of the price.

    They're probly waiting for Sony to announe theirs. aren't MS all about being cheaper? hence the price drop AFTER sony's drop & slim announcement. they won;t announce such a thing until after sony's that way they can make it cheaper and still brag about having the cheaper consoles.

    I "predicted" this would happen when the Elite price drop was announced..
    Makes sense to keep a "premium brand" in the range..
