According to http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=72747 and a leaked Circuit City flier, the http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=332079 60GB HDD Live starter pack is really real and will be releasing next week.
The 60GB HDD Live pack includes a 60GB hard drive, a 3 month subscription to Xbox Live, a wired headset and ethernet cable all for $99.
Quite the steep price, but it works in terms of the console pricing between an Xbox 360 Arcade and Xbox 360 Pro.
But we're not justifying the price, and 100% agree that it's still way expensive. More PlayStation 3 News...
