    Anyone who's bought the version of the Xbox360 with the 20GB hard drive knows the underwhelming collection of free stuff pre-loaded on the hard drive. The Xbox 360 Elite will have much more free content pre-loaded on it. For the extra money it would cost to get an Xbox360 Elite, you get three game demos, free episodes of popular television shows, and some movie previews. The three game demos are Burnout Revenge, Kameo, and Tomb Raider: Legend. There will be eight videos on the Xbox 360, including one full length episode of Justice League. All this free content sums up to one thing: Microsoft is trying to show off how their machine is more than just a gaming platform.

    I believe it is $400 for premium and $480 for elite. It's worth it just for the extra HD space IMO.

    Hehe, so are the demos and trailers that you have to pay for ?) Seems more like a marketing plot with the FREE thingy. Now this sort of thing when all we had were modems would have been great and true, now it seems more like :ohwell:
