and......
it`s the arcade version.
sonarus  +   2385d ago
as long as there is no blu ray, it still has lesser value
Hatchetforce  +   2385d ago
And it doesn't include years of LIVE either. People may say they do not need wireless or next gen DVD but a console is hardly complete without online MP. Suddenly it isn't cheaper than a PS3.
THAMMER1  +   2385d ago
You can acess live and more with the core and more. If you people call your self gamers you should know this type of info. Click the link.
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/h...

Only a hand full of games req. the HDD for online MP. If your not into that which most casual gamers are not the core is not a bad option.

Why do you people act like you can just completely avoid the truth. This is the internet age. You make uneducated comments that can easily be dismissed as lies and false because of your bias.

Click the link if you want the truth about the 360 arcade.

Yup Thammer just owned you
Many 360 games don't need a hard drive to play and will play on this just fine. It just doesn't support BC, which last time I checked ether does the 40gb PS3.
mikeslemonade  +   2385d ago
And I suppose you can fit the expansions of Oblivion and GTA4 along with your other stuff on that 256mb unit. You do get a deal here but in a year your going to want to upgrade to better stuff. PS3 you are all set with a $20 bluetooth headset and a $5 HDMI cable. As a buyer why do I want to buy all the old games. I want to play the latest and greatest games coming in 2008.

Not really
"a console is hardly complete without online MP."

This is not true.....yet. The PS2 wasn't known much for online play, and it is basically still kicking the crap out of every console out there. Online play is a good bonus though.
sonarus  +   2385d ago
YES but it still doesn't support blu ray which makes it off lesser value.
Hatchetforce  +   2385d ago
You can hardly compare the lack of online 5 years ago with the lack of online today. When the PS2 was running the show online wasn't the structure it is now. Here is an axiom you obviously have never heard. Things change. Online communities have expanded to the point where MP is necessary for any sort of rounded and complete experience. Can you have a good time without any online MP? Yes. Can you have a complete experience that all of your friends are enjoying? No.

Look at the most vaunted 360 titles. How many of them are SP only and how many of them make a bigger deal out of MP than SP? Bioshock and Mass Effect come to mind in the SP department. MP? What was the most advertised 360 title last year? What is the strength of that title? What part of any title receives prominent updates, the SP or the MP? Other than Oblivion and the recent Mass Effect missions - a debacle in that you have to go back into the game and either have kept a save or else replay the title - MP gets the lion's share of attention.

The argument you are making is worthless. You can draw the same analogy by saying that 3D acceleration isn't necessary for great gaming. While you can produce some 2D games that are good, the gaming experience is hardly complete without. The dodgy argument that that attempts to paint the 360 Arcade with no MP as some great deal is not only deceptive but is also ill founded and unsupported.

The 360 Arcade is a bargain but only for a very narrow spectrum of players and only for a portion of most titles. Inevitably the attempts to make forays into the most sought after 360 titles will lead to a very rude and costly awakening.

lesser value without bluray?
most gamers buy consoles to play games. This comes with 10 real games and 5 arcade games. for the same price ps3 comes with no games, but home is free so in a few months I guess they can hang out in their virtual house while for the same price they can buy a game console to play their 10 games(crappy games?) compared to NO GAMES for a similiar priced ps3. If you dont think this is a good deal then your bind. And no, the thing comes with a memory card so you can play games online, just cant download abunch of content thats all.

Please, please, for the love of God, LEARN TO READ! This is not an actual bundle! This is a simple slamming together of various finds of the lowest prices found for random items on the internet. You cannot go to a store or single site and purchase this "bundle". This is getting really annoying, that people are commenting on how great this "bundle" is when it's not even a bundle.

I see that the "THAMMER1" has reared his ugly head. Along with one of his stooges (Jason360). But you two managed to completely miss Hatchetforce's point. He wasnt saying that you cant get on the internet with it, but rather that, you have to pay $50 for it, therefore add another $50 bucks to that price. Man you two are sharp!

@1.8

Its amazing that you're arguing the Xbox 360 Arcade isnt any good because games require online play.

Why? Because the Xbox 360 LIVE makes the PS3's PSN look like shiat.

So, yeah, online play is really really important. And, you can play online with the Xbox 360 Arcade. And, the Xbox 360's online play is VASTLY superior to PSN.

Its just a laugh riot that you're trying to say "Buy a PS3 for online play".

"you have to pay $50 for it, therefore add another $50 bucks to that price. Man you two are sharp"

Wow. None of those (great) games need to get online.

Halo 3, PGR4, Foraz 2, Oblivion, Dead Rising, PacMan CE, Stuntman, Prey -- none need online play.

Now, you do need to pay $30-35 to "Buy" something useful for the BluRay drive dont you? What good is the PS3 as a movie play unless you pay for the movies?

Im trying to keep my cool in this forum at the moment, I own all the boxes, and I'm not overly concerned with paying $50 or $100 for my favorite hobby here and there, but there are many many N4G users who are tripping over themselves and being incredibly dishonest.

You're another one that's not to bright. Once again, you completely missed the point and jumped to inaccurate conclusions. The point is not that you need online for those games, but rather that you need online period for this generation in order to get the full experience out of it. You dont need to buy any Blu ray movies in order to get the full PS3 game experience! You wanna talk about people being dishonest!? Yet here you are being intellectually dishonest. And im a 360 owner by the way, not a PS3 one.

p.s. you need to get better reading comprehension and not let your emotions get the best of you. HA! you need to buy movies for the PS3 in order to get the full game experience

that arcade bundle is hot.
I dont see how a casual gamer or a normal gamer who isnt a fanboy (90% of gamers) would pick the ps3 with no rumble and no games (bundled) over this package.
Ok there is no blu ray but a a casual gamer wont care about blu ray until blu ray is absolutely neccesary (when dvd is going to die).
No HDD : casual gamers dont play online , why do you think online is almost inexistant on Wii ?
Moreover most of those games are great.
captainpwn  +   2385d ago
Hmmm
Maybe you should try telling that to the millions of Europeans and Japanese folks who see PS3 as a better value and are purchasing it much more than the 360. In fact, didn't you see January's NPD numbers? Even North Americans are buying PS3s more than 360's now. You can deny it as much as you want, but the 360 = an incomplete experience.

Everybody is getting Bluray in the future- even the xbots. Why not have it bundled into 1 machine. Everybody is moving towards wifi, if they haven't already. Would you want it built in, or pay $100 for an external adapter? And, one of the most compelling reasons to jump in the next gen or consoles is online. Charging $50 a year/$8 a month + money for dam wallpapers and avatars is a rip off when PSN offers it for free. Especially when Home and in-game XMB release later this Spring, XBOX LIVE will have no merit.

It's pretty clear many consumers can identify the difference between value and rip offs. Just ask the millions of PS3 owners worldwide. All consumers, casual or core, can realize the difference between the 2 machines. PS3 just has more to offer.

Why are they pushing the arcade so much? It's just going to result in bad publicity when people start complaining they can't play "x" game or use "y" feature.

It's like selling a keyboard with a few button's missing, you might get away with it now, but sooner or later your gonna need that button!

It's more like...
Selling a keyboard with all it's buttons or selling a media keyboard with all the standard buttons plus others to control other functions on your computer.

Not everyone needs a HDD, and if M$ released a really cheap small HDD it wouldn't be as bad at all.

Summary: some people just don't need the extra features, and 15 games/2 controllers/HDMI would probably take up enough time for you to save up for a HDD.
wow4u  +   2385d ago
You're out of your mind.

There are *MANY* people who would prefer this 15-Game Bundle.

What is wrong with you? Its *CHOICE*. For those who prefer the HD, he can just buy the Pro or Elite.

You're just a little bitter about all this arent you? Its okay. Its okay to make mistakes. You can still buy an Xbox 360, its okay to own both.

HD movies work
perfectly on an xbox arcade system but you either have to stream them from a PC or burn them onto a DVD my mate has an arcade and watches HD movies all the time thanks to the torrent sites why bother with blu ray when dual layer dvds do a fine job at a high bit rate and the right encoding but sometimes you need 2 disks though.

Yes its just for the movie downloads from the market place.

If your a gamer looking for a great value there you have it. You only need the HDD if your a content nut. The core has a HDMI port so if you need HD a decent HDMI cable is around $10.00. If you just care about games and want to get them where they shine this is the best way to go.

Arcade, don't know about that. But still...

10 Games in the same quality, or even better then on the PS3 version, and with the memory card one can also go online...

the game selection they give is actually a very good selection. Usually they just dump shovelware into sets like this but some of the best X360 games are in the list:
PGR4, Dead Rising, Elder Scrolls 4, Forza 2, Viva Pinata, Halo3

you'd probably buy 80% of them anyway so the savings is pretty impressive. The HDD is worth less then 5 of the games so might as well buy this edition and buy the HDD seperately (painful though it may be)
The Lazy One  +   2385d ago

Thats the great thing about choice. YOU pick.

The price enables you to make choices. Wonderful isnt it. Do you think you'll want the HD? Get it. More games? Get those.

Choice is a wonderful thing. And, if you change your mind, you didnt miss out on anything.

That is NOT true of the PS3. If you buy a PS3 *WITHOUT* PS2 Backwards Compatibility -- then you can NEVER have it. Sorry, your screwed.

That is the BAD choice to make.
DARK WITNESS  +   2385d ago
well, i still love my 360, but i do agree they should not be promoting the arcade, infact they should do away with it.

The hard drive needs to become standard, it just seems so backwards.

even if they put a 5 gig drive on or something it would be better. Then lower the price of the 20 drivers so people who already have core can get a hard drive and not feel left out.

The devs will be happy cos they can make the games they want, the gamers will be happy cos we will be getting much better gaming experience from the devs.

Every SKU should be able to play that console's entire library of game's from the very first to the very last, and without dropping any feature's, all of it!

It's fine to sell/push peripherals, but you cant remove an essential part of the machine to lower cost/RRP only to force these people to have to buy it at a later date at inflated price's.

It make's me an angry Douche to think that a company would think so little of the people who made that company what it is today! Stinking Rich!

dont get me wrong, i totally agree with you. thats why i said it was backwards of them to do that....

but, the point is that it's a mistake they have already made and there is simply no way round it with out screwing someone over.

it only makes if feel like you are being more screwed when you look at the price they are selling the hard drives for.
thats why i think they should have a 5gig drive or some sort of driver that they can sell for next to nothing to people who don't have a drive.

People are already being F£cked by this as it is because there are already games that " require " the HD to be played or access content.

its not fair, its a shame, but its the situation as it is, when is needed is a solution. its harsh, but no harsher then not being able to play a game cos you don't have a HD.

Yeah. It would be nice if every PS3 came with a Rumble Controller and Backwards compatibility.

So, when Ken Kutaragi Said:

"...the PS3 will feature backwards compatibility with PS and PS2 games from day one. I'm emphasizing this because, from what I hear, there are some platforms that haven't been able to completely do this. It's costly in terms of hardware, but we'd rather [invest] firmly on compatibility from the beginning, rather than to have issues later on."

He was a liar and an idiot.

Oh, and you can always *BUY* a HD now or later -- your choice. If you buy a PS3 without BC, you *NEVER* have it.
fallfast  +   2385d ago
"Every SKU should be able to play that console's entire library of game's from the very first to the very last, and without dropping any feature's, all of it!"

Yeah, and why dont all the PS3s have Backwards Compatibility, multi-memory card port or the 4 USB ports?

"It's fine to sell/push peripherals, but you cant remove an essential part of the machine to lower cost/RRP only to force these people to have to buy it at a later date at inflated price's. "

Yeah, I'll remember that Mighty Douce when I'm replacing my useless controllers for the Rumble units at $50 each.

Not bad
The only reason the Arcade is even thought of is because it is closest thing they have that can be cheaper than the Wii. If not for that, then it wouldn't even matter.

All of us know that the Premium is the best choice (or the Elite if you can afford it), but everyone doesn't have the cash/time/need for the other models. The Arcade is fine for what its intended, an entry level console. We should look more at what its for and less at what it lacks.

I believe that the Arcade can be even more valuable if Microsoft can drop the prices on their HDDs. They need to be priced competitively with others on the market. I'm sure they can do that. For some reason they just refuse to.

I hope people are actually reading the article instead of just the title and description. Even though it seems people are skipping ove the description as well. This isn't a bundle, this is simply research of the internet to find the cheapest price on items. I'm willing to bet this doesn't include shipping or whatever they call it across the pond, or sales tax (again, I'm not sure what they call it or even if there is sales tax in the UK, but one can make reasonable assumptions). The point I'm trying to make is that if you take the time to do research, you can usually find pretty good deals. In other obvious bits of info: the sky is blue. People have known for a while that researching prices on the internet saves you money, but it takes work. It's not like this is an actual bundle in stores or a single offer from a known site like Amazon. This is basically a gee whiz article that does nothing but say "lookie what I found wit mah computer". At least it's categorized correctly. No offense meant TNS.

In the same way, you can buy a 360 with loads of games for less than the cost of a PS3 but if what you really want is a bluray player and a cheap Linux PC, a PS3 is the way to go and is then excellent value, value is subjective as it is dependant upon an individuals personal wants.

What I am trying to say in a round about way is that when it comes to gaming, the common sense decisions of value are rarely considered because if they were not one person would ever buy a console or game on release day because they know eventually the cost will drop significantly. The 360 is now a very good deal but it wont have any effect on those people who are still finding everything they want from a console on the PS3.

@ ferrari/focus
Maybe... if you paid double for all the ford focuses...

don't insult ferrari by even uttering that car in the same sentence.
The Lazy One  +   2385d ago
How...
Do you disagree with ford focuses being POSes compared to ferraris?

@kevoncox
Yo are so right.
I git banned for two weeks because I mad a joke on the ps3.
Peole diss the 360 all day long in the gamer zone and they never get banned.
Moreover it wasnt even a diss , just a joke.
Im not going to say the mods are sonyfanboys , but its funny why they ban me and not the others.

@capitainpwn : why dont you ask the 18 million worlwide why did they buy the 360 and not the ps3.Oh yeah , its because games come first for them.You say 50 dollars a month is alot but you rush out to pay 50 dollars for a demo (gt5) when on xbox live ALL demos are free no matter the size.
Paying 50 dollars for a demo then 60 dollars for the game , now that is what I call a rip off.
What about you ?

You are one of those funny "gamers" who prefer a bluray drive rather than 15 great games to play on your console.
I dont know alot of gamers like you who prefers whatching films rather than than playin great AAA games.

Wow, lachance looks stupid as usual...
I got banned for cracking on the 360, so I'm guessing the mods are all Sony fanboys. Part of the reason that more people own 360 could possibly be the fact that it was out a full year in advance. If this trend towards casual games is what M$ is trying to capitalize on then your AAA titles are pretty much irrelevant. GT5 Prologue does not say demo anywhere in the title and also costs $39.99 not $50 as you incorrectly stated. You show me a demo on XBL that is the size of GT5 Prologue. And btw, how can you even believe that the demos you get on XBL are free? I believe you are the one paying monthly to even be able to access ANYTHING on XBL, while I can get my PS3 demos for free with no monthly charges.

can you name them
can you name the 15 GREAT games for the 360. i'd like to know. in all honesty. not trying to be a fackazz of anything.

Why the comparison?
I can show an HD-DVD bundle that is cheaper than a stand-alone Blu-ray player. I can show a bundle of Hyundais that is cheaper than a single Corvette. There is no right or wrong answer, and price isn't the only factor. People will buy what they want to have, no matter how you try to re-word the sales pitch. I can show everyone that it is cheaper to live in Arizona than California, but you're not going to see a mass exodus of people moving from Carmel to Tucson.

When people ask about the Arcade bundle at Gamestop, we just laugh...

We say either get the pro or go for a PS3...
feejo  +   2385d ago
NOrmal it worth less.
DJ  +   2385d ago
Yeah, if you want something cheap than get the Arcade.
Just know that it'll cost around $100~180 if you decide to get a 360 Hard Drive, and a good $50 a year to play your games online.
cherrypie  +   2385d ago
So, you want a HD? Buy a Pro. And a couple less games.

Testo  +   2385d ago
Not to bad at all!
I have a few questions though!

Does the arcade really come with 2 free games now?! F2 and VP?
I'm sad cause my arcade just came with the 5 stupid games:

Uno
Packman Championship Edition
Boom Boom Rocket
Feeding Frenzy
Luxor 2

And only 1 controller!!!

Boo!

Other then that and a few games which should be replaced (Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Prey, Table Tennis and VP.) This is great!

Maybe they should take out these 4 + Stuntman Ignition and get something worth while like Mass Effect or BioS! Then it would be "10 game bundle cheaper then PS3" but it would kick@ss
