Microsoft today put an Xbox 360 Hard Drive Data Migration Transfer Kit for sale on its Web store finally allowing faithful gamers looking to buy larger hard drives to do so without forfeiting all their data in the upgrade.

The kit

Don’t know about you, but I’m still on my 2005 original 20 GB hard drive. And with the rise of digital games and gaming, I’ve been left biting the bullet and downloading something, erasing it to make room for something else, then re-downloading it when I want to play it again.

I’ve been waiting to buy a kit like this to upgrade to a 120 or 250 GB HDD for some time and now, with certainty, I’ll do it.

And at $14.99, it’s not the totally “bend-over” price point I expected. Hooray.

Buy your [way too long of name] kit at the Microsoft Store today.

    I just bought one of these last month by calling them up. This isn’t new but wasn’t advertised. I had purchased a used 120GB drive from Gamestop and was told by the employee that they had a deal with MS not to sell the cables even if it was a used one that they would have bought with the used hard drive.

    The package took about 10 days to arrive and the return address said nothing about MS. The software disc does put some old and outdated videos on the hard drive.

    I ended up paying a little over $16 for it I believe with taxes and such. Was a better deal than trying to buy from Ebay just took longer. The lady I spoke with told me it could take up to 4 weeks to arrive but that I could call after a week to get a tracking number.
