Think about this, without the hard drive, you MUST pay 30 bucks for the memory card or you can't save; ON TOP OF THAT, you get a WIRED controller, wireless controllers are 50 bucks a pop if you ever wanted to upgrade.
That was the point I was looking for, nobody has thought about saving their game.
The actual price of the core system in the UK is going to be £232.99 since you're gonna need the memory card and it's not optional unless you like restarting a game or can complete it in one go.
People spend the extra cash and get a premium system, if you don't like the wireless controller then sell it and buy a wired one.
I can't believe people choosing the core system as consumers can't recongnise that the premium system is more worth it.
