Xbox 360 Arcade Owners Can Upgrade For $99


Posted October 29, 2008 - By r_pad

Although it hasn't shown up on the official Microsoft site, the Xbox 360 Hard Drive 60GB Live Pack is now available for pre-order on GameStop.com. The kit includes a 60GB hard drive (duh), an ethernet cable for data transfer, a headset, and a three-month Xbox Live membership. Xbox 360 Arcade owners can purchase the kit to transform their storage-challenged consoles into the equivalent of the Xbox 360 Pro model, but without component video cables.

It's easy to understand why Microsoft wants to have a model at the attractive $199 price point; it looks good to unknowledgeable consumers, investors, analysts, and stupid people. Real gamers know that you simply can't have the full experience of a modern console with this system. The release of this necessity for Arcade owners "upgrade" shows just how crippled the Arcade is. This is especially true when you consider the chunky (but way cool) new dashboard update that requires at least 128MB of storage. If you're tired of your 360 impersonating a leaf blower and you want to take advantage of the ability to fully load games on the console then you must have a hard drive. The Xbox 360 needs storage and a memory card isn't going to cut it. On the plus side, the upgrade allows penny-pinching gamers a way to eventually get the full 360 experience.
