Microsoft announces New Xbox 360 250GB

True to its name, the new Xbox 360 250GB comes with a 250GB HDD inside it. It is incompatible with the older hard drive though and it seems you cannot just use any laptop hard drive as you can on the PlayStation 3. You also cannot use older memory cards of the Xbox 260 with the new console. To transfer data from the old console to the new one, you can use a 16GB flash drive or the hard drive transfer cable (sold separately for $20).

The new Xbox 360 250GB has already gone on sale in U.S. and is available for $299 (Rs. 13,949 approx.). The older Xbox 360 is also on sale for $199 (Rs. 9,283 approx.) but may get an update. We hope the new console arrives in India soon.
