Microsoft Want $200 For A Xbox 250GB HDD

You can now pick up a terabyte worth of storage space for under a hundred bucks. So why is it that Microsoft want to charge you $200 for a quarter of that storage space?

The 250GB HDD for the Xbox 360 has been around in bundles for a few months now, but it has finally gone on sale as a standalone peripheral in Australia. And while it would be extremely useful for hoarding demos, videos, full game installs and avatar outfits, something about the price just seems off.

Sure, getting a HDD into that slidey Xbox form factor would add some cost to the drive, but surely not that much. I can't imagine these will start flying off shelves too quickly...
