Yep Microshaft has done it again, all they really did was throw out the pro, switch it with the elite and made another sku with a bigger hard drive for an extra hundred dollars,

Although i think its cool that it comes with the game and controller so technically your saving about 10 dollars.

Looks cool, but the Pro model was the $199 model wasn't it? If so why would they get rid of the hottest seller? If it's not, my bad.

Arcade is 199

Elite is not 299
and This one replaces the Elite at 399.

The only people i see buying this are collectors or people who do not have a 360

i wouldn't spend 400 dollars on another 360 for more HDD space and some spray paint on it

Also has an extra wireless controller and comes with COD:MW2. Seems like a great deal to me :)

That is really strange. Sony drops the $399 price point and MS stays there and then leaves the $299 price point? The PS3 is butchering 360 sales, if they offered just the console, with no controller or game at $299 they could compete. People would still pick it up for the special edition console and the good price.

i did mention this, but my argument is the customers its going to attract, the only reason you get the extra controller and game is cause its part of the bundle package, it won't be a permanent thing except for special edition versions of games.

But does that mean every time M$ comes out with a bigger hard drive your best bet is to hope your console RRoD and get this one?

Yeah, I did say about the 'Super Elites' a while back ;) But I didnt know a MW2 edition was planned.

Arcade is 199
Pro WAS 299
Elite is not 299
and This one replaces the Elite at 399.

Yeah, its bullshit isnt it m8.....Im just looking forward to the 250gb being released so I can swap my 120gb for a 250gb (but not an official one lol)

Yes that is because it's part of a bundle, when the 360 permanent sku comes out im sure it will be 399.99 without the extra controller.

than again, this is a limited edition so who knows if there will be a permanent sku for it

I don't see them taking away the game and controller and leaving it at $399, to be honest.

The 360 Elite is $299

I believe the extra controller is only for this bundle(and other stuff), thus raising the price.

But no, the price isn't $399 and i don't think they are going to raise it to $399.(They just cut the price, would hurt them more then help them if raised)

Arcade is 199
Pro WAS 299
Elite is 299
and This one doesn't replace the Elite at 399.
fixed.

This is a limited edition bundle, so its not going to be in the market for long (which you mentioned), the standard price for a Elite is $299 but with this they are giving you another controller, a game, bigger hdd, cool looking case(or at least to me it looks nice) for an extra $100(fantastic deal). Its not going to be the standard price for all 360 Elite models.


Still gonna get a PS3 Slim tho.:)

It's not that this is the shaft, this deal is fine. It's that Sony moved to a lower price point and then MS eliminated that price point and continued with the upper market. Kind of a strange move.

The 250GB HD not coming to stores is very disappointing.

The actual deal is fine.;)

yeah for people who either have a broken 360 or don't have one at all.

I'd probably just do what hookey is thinking and upgrading my 360 drive to a 250, whenever someone releases the code

the way I look at it, when you buy a 360 HDD, you get ripped off anyway because your basically paying for the plastic mainly, so I say fu** that and use the hdd hacker instead of paying 150 dollar for a 50 dollar hard drive.

maybe they know people will just hack their hard drives with the BEVS 250GB, I don't know

seriously

i JUST thought of why your not going to see the 250gb HDD sold alone, because it would have to compete with the 120gb Price? and if the 120gb HDD cost $159.99 they would have to sell the 250gb HDD for at least 225-250, that is more than a arcade system.

Simply put microshaft would know nobody would buy it.
