Microsoft has clarified that the 250GB Xbox 360 hard drive, which was unveiled as part of the Modern Warfare 2 console bundle earlier today, will not be sold on its own.

"This hard drive is not being sold separately," said Larry Hryb (pronounced Herb), boss of Xbox Live, during a short video on Kotaku.

The Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console costs $399.99 and contains two wireless pads, one nicely decorated 250GB console, a headset and a copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It's coming out on the same day as the game - 10th November - and European pre-order details are expected later this week.

Whether, however, this HDD will stay bundle-exclusive while services like Xbox Live Games on Demand cry out for more storage, remains to be seen.
