Imagine if friends and families had the ability to instantly watch movies and share pictures, live out their musical fantasies through "Lips" (iNiS Corp./Microsoft Game Studios) and "Rock Band" (Harmonix/MTV Games) and star in their own Hollywood classics with "You're in the Movies" (Codemasters/Microsoft Game Studios) - all from one console, starting at an estimated retail price (ERP) of only €179/£129.99. That is the Xbox 360, and Microsoft today announced the new lower ERP for its Xbox 360 family of consoles in Europe. Now with an entry-level ERP of €179/£129.99 and offering a plethora of exciting and broad entertainment in the living room, Xbox 360 is the true home of mass market entertainment with something to offer for every interest and budget.

About time too, lets be honest.

I wonder, though if this is just to get rid of the remaining stock before they release the new models.

Those are the new models. The 20GB is the old model.

120GB IS massive for a console. Just last generation, memory cards had like 128kb.

It's not massive. The "elite" is targetted as a media server, not "just a games console". 120GB is far more than is needed for a games consolem but is pretty poor for a media centre. Sure it's OK, but x360 is missing a big big market potential, to create a personal CD and DVD library on HDD, just as other media servers can. Seems pretty silly that people now buy iPods as media centres not just portable audio... and have docking stations to their hi-fi/AV systems.

I bet Microsoft, to compete with the PS3, will at some point release a hard drive add-on that you can insert your own notebook hard drive into.

yeah i was hoping the Wii would allow usb hard drives to store music and those download games but i guess there is the chance that pirates might use it

the ps3 allows for you to save downloaded content to another drive to you can save to an external drive and share it with your family mates, you not supposed to but you can this is probly what micro soft dont want 360 users doing

if we had the choice of our own hard drives i bet someone would hack the 360 just like the xbox original was easily hacked with a bootloader


still if you cant beat the pirates just at least give us other options, like a hard drive bay

if you replace the drive in the proprietary drives you still get the same amount of space so there is no point in doing that theyd have to add some update to the console to allow full usage

The PS2's official minimum memory card was 8MB :D

Yes, but the concept of local storage was different then. All memory cards would do was save settings, saved games, profiles, etc. Today, the console hard drive is made to cache entire games / downloaded updates / addons, etc.
