Hard Drive Gives Users a Reason to Go Places

Hard Drive Gives Users a Reason to Go Places

The hard drive is proving to pack quite a bundle, as it will be including preinstalled items such as an entire music album, the ‘Making of Xbox 360’ video, and the Hexic arcade game. Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President comments of the hard drive saying, “We’re giving users a reason to go somewhere. You know it’s a little more fun to go to the video section and find a video there, than nothing at all. So, you’ll see a little 3-minute video on the making of Xbox 360, and you’ll go, ‘Oh, OK. I understand what that section is about.’ So, you’ll see stuff in the marketplace, in the trailers section, and part of it is to get the customers to understand the capabilities of the system, to discover more on their own. Part of it is to give them a little bonus for buying the hard drive.

Music, movies, the Hexic arcade game; this is all turning out to look pretty awesome. Hopefully you have had the chance to pre-order your Xbox 360 Premium Package so you get the hard drive; as most retailers have already reached their limit of preorders. Premium Package or not, you can still purchase the hard drive separate for an extra £69.99 or $99.99 at amazon.co.uk or amazon.com. But hurry, they may be sold out soon also!
