Microsoft pushed Xbox 360 storage capacity to 100GB

With Sony's PlayStation 3 coming in November with a 60GB hard drive on the high-end system, Microsoft's mere 20GB hard drive included on the $399 Xbox 360 looks rather small in comparison. That will all change with the new 100GB hard drive add-on which will be introduced during the first quarter of 2007 in Korea.

With so much Xbox Live content now available for gamers including downloadable music/video content and game demos, the 20GB hard drive can fill up rather quickly. And while we do know that the 100GB hard drive will be available as an accessory, there is no word yet if the hard drive will replace the 20GB unit used in the high-end Xbox 360 at a later date.

There is no word yet on pricing or the North American availability for the hard drive, but we'd imagine the same Q1 '07 time frame as the Korean launch.

Also on display was a 256MB memory card for those that prefer to save their games to that storage medium. Other peripherals of note that are coming shortly for the Xbox 360 include the HD DVD drive, Wireless Racing Wheel, Wireless Headset and the recently released Live Vision Camera.
