Does It Makes Sense To Keep "core Bundle"?
Posted 26 November 2005 - 04:59 PM
I have an iPod, so I'm not so interested in copying music to the Hard Drive. I also don't plan on using the 360 for xBox games (use my original modded box for that). So, do I need the Hard Drive right away? The way I see it (and correct me if I'm wrong), I just need the AV cables,headset and remote. Is the only difference the "platinum" appearance on the drive? It looks like Hard Drives are in shortage right now, as they are fetching over $150 for the puny 20GB drive.
M$ really handicapped the "core" system. Tremendous value in the premium.
Thanks for the advice.

I am in no rush for accessories, and when they are available for the normal price I will get them. Much cheaper than the premium pack. I only need one controller, which i have....SO only the harddrive I need to wait for and hidef cables.
Hold on to it and just get the stuff as the price comes down....after all , your holding an xbox 360....something millions of others are trying to get.

You will most likely end up wanting a HD just because there will be so much content available to download from Live. In the future, I'm sure developers will take advantage of the extra space and some games may even be "Hard Drive Only". If you can't wait any longer to play, then by all means keep the Core. But if you have enough patience, then try to hold out for the Premium. It is totally worth the extra $100.
Agreed, There are already high def movie trailers, Game demos and arcade games and i would imagine there will be extra levels and things for games shortly. You've probably paid as much or close to how much the premium costs just with the 64mb memory card and av cables, I think if you buy a core then all the accesories extra its something like $520 total.
