New Xbox — with 120 gigs — next month?

An intriguing comment in response to Tuesday’s AppleTV post:

“You will most likely see a new Xbox 360 with a 120gb hard drive and HDMI out next month.”

I think the commenter is a Texas musician — great to hear from him, some of my favorite music comes from that state — but who knows? He may have an inside line. Or maybe he’s just an optimist.

An Xbox refresh was going to happen sooner or later, since Microsoft is pitching the Xbox 360 set-top box. AppleTV‘s got to be making it sooner.

I’ve asked Microsoft for more info.

UPDATE: In the meantime, a helpful reader in Woodinville pointed to a few sites that earlier predicted a special edition 120 gig/HDMI Xbox code-named Zephyr may arrive in April for $479, followed by those features becoming standard in late summer. Still waiting for confirmation though.
