250GB HDD MSRP Discrepency

According to xbox.com, the 250GB HDD for the slim Xbox 360 has a price of $99.99.  See here: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/Xbox360/Accessories/HardDrives/250GBHDD

However, nearly every retailer (including the Microsoft Store) sells the drive for $129.99.

So, what's the deal?  Did the price just drop and not yet go into effect?  Has the price gone up and the website isn't yet updated?  Is it just a typo? 

Can anyone shed some light on this?  Even at $99 the drive is a ripoff, but at least buying the no-hard-drive $200 xbox plus the drive is no more expensive than the $300 model.  I really don't want to have to spend an extra $30 to get a matte finish on the console. . .
