GamersReports.com is reporting one hell of a story. Basically, their inside source gave them a tip that Microsoft Australia told Myer (think Target, but in Australia) to prepare the store for a Black 360 with a 120GB hard drive in April.
Well day 2 of product knowledge today (Brisbane, Australia) featured Microsoft themselves and it’s now 100% official that the Black 360, (with black controller), 120gb hard drive and HDMI is due out in Australia for $749 AU in April. They will try to push this forward to late March to deter buyers from the March 23 PS3 launch.
Now you see why I had to write about this? This is one hell of a rumor. The one thing I’m concerned with is why would Microsoft alert Australian stores 3 months before the new console would arrive there. Shouldn’t they alert them maybe 1 month before or so? I mean, I don’t know anything about the retail business, but I think 3 months notice is a little long.
