Microsoft Reiterates No Upgrade for Xbox 360 Hard Drive

Following on from Microsoft's announcement that they will be offering downloadable TV shows and films via xbox live, Microsoft once again showed no support in offering an upgrade to the current 20GB hard disk that comes with a premium Xbox. With a high definition 720p likely to fill around a quarter of a 20GB drive people are starting to see the limitations that the current hardware allows, and if Microsoft are to promote their console as a media centre as well as a console then this problem will need to be addressed soon.

Shane Kim, General Manager of Microsoft Game Studios estimates that the current detachable 20GB hard drive that comes standard with the Xbox 360 Premium model can hold four to five hours of high-def content or about 15 hours of standard-definition video.
