it is a gip, but not what u make it out to be, since its a 2.5" hdd. yes u could get a 250gb 3.5" drive, but 2.5" drives are much much more expensive., u may be able to get a 80g 2.5 for 100 tho, but i think that 2.5" drives only go up to 120, with new ones on the way at 180gb.

If you think about it the $400 dollar pack is alot better.



The $300 dollar pack doesn't come with a HDD, and if u wanted 1 it would add up to 400, and that doesnt include: wireless controller, headset, upgraded cable, and a media remote.


400 DOLLAR PACK ALL THE WAY. IM IN LOVE WITH THE $400 DOLLAR PACK. love.gif

Ouch. That is expensive as hell. But, what do I expect...it's M$.

$50 for a wireless controller. Oh, man.

As excited as I am, I almost wish it wasn't coming out for another year or so. Just cause I know that rushed launches are the first way to kill a system.

That, and i'm not ready to retire my xboxes sad.gif love.gif

DO NOT BUY THE XBOX360 AND COME ON THESE FORUMS IN THE FUTURE IF WE WILL CONTINUALLY HEAR YOUR WHINING OVER THE 5$ PRICE INCREASES. This is really pissing me off, have you no self control? Current controllers cost 40$. If you can't afford that once in a console generation purchase for a requiredperiphal, then don't buy one. Then we'll see how much fun you have with your Xbox360. Wait, game are 10$ more now. Fuck that, don't buy a game either. Wait, the console is 100$ more expensive that Xbox1 when it was released! Fuck that, don't buy one.
Seriously, if you aren't willing to pull the money out for it, then don't. Don't complain about it. It's a simple coice of NO. I'm not buying a 55" Tv because I can't afford it.

Carlo's advice to you:
If you honestly need to get an Xbox360, yet are skeptical about the prices, don't buy one. Then after a while of not having it, you will see how much you want it.

Put up with it if you know you need to. Think about it this way, it's either no Xbox360 and 5 years without next gen gaming or spending the extra 10 bucks here and there.

Even if it isn't, it doesn't grasp my attention. What are Sony Fanboys talking about? What type of stealth suit SNAKE will be wearing this time? What kind of new menu-based gameplay header designs they can expect. "Oh, maybe the guns will be BLUE in the menu!".

Lol, sorry, just had to act like a young Xbox Fanboy for a second.

I'm not so much an Xbox fanboy but a Not-interested-in-Sonys-bland-consoles boy. Yeah, that's it! beerchug.gif pop.gif
