They'll also have more freedom to download the latest demos, Xbox Live arcade games, TV shows, movies, music and more straight to their Xbox 360 console.”

Microsoft also posted an advert on the US Xbox 360 dashboard showcasing a single 250GB HDD.

The HDD is already available in Japan and is confirmed for arrival in the US. Microsoft previously told MCV a standalone 250GB HDD wouldn't go on sale in the UK.
