    The title pretty much says it all, next week Microsoft will start selling a Starter Pack for all Xbox 360 Arcade console fan that have never gone past the casual offline gaming. The pack includes everything you need to jump into Xbox LIVE with the Xbox 360: a spacious 60GB Hard Drive, Headset, 3-month LIVE Gold subscription, and Ethernet cable. The Xbox Live 60GB starter pack can be pre-ordered now from GameStop for $99.99, with an expected U.S. ship date of November 4th. (Ed. note: The same kit should be available on or before Nov. 21st in Europe for 79€)

    This is obviously coming up cus of the NXE. What with it needing 128mb to install and all. You can also get a free memory stick if eligible for the same reason, will see if i can find the link.

    Here you go:

    According to Hexus.net:

    So basically if your eligible you can get this kit for a knock down price. (might be worth adding it into the news post malware ;) )

    Well I should mention, that I am the Teamlead for MS XBox 360 Promotions here in Austria.

    The above DOES NOT work for Arcade Consoles!! If MS knows if you ever used a HDD on the console or not, I do not know. But my Arcade DID NOT allow me to get the upgrade deal!

    The Arcade comes with a 256MB memory card. This is SUFFICIENT for NXE. Sure you will have some serious traffic over the inet, but it is sufficient.

    That information comes from the Xbox Live! PM at MS Austria. I am trying to get clarification as I am writing this.

    EDIT: Just got confirmation: MS checks if a HDD has been used with the console within the last 12 months. If yes = no upgrade!

    cheers
