GT: Aaron Greenberg just confirmed that Xbox 360 Arcade will retail for $149 USD.
really???....your a bum!
It's not expensive, it's just not worth it. No hard drive= what's the point?
It a plus for those living in poverty.
My six year old son has an arcade, he still enjoys playing with just a memory card. Not ever gamer needs hard drives, wifi etc
Even though I agree with Clownbelt and Alpha, for some reason I found that comment funny. "Still expensive" "really???....your a bum!" lol...Maybe I'm just bored at work or whatever, but I found humor in that. So if nothing else, thanks for helping pass the time
For $210, you can be playing Xbox 360 with the game of your choice. For another $7, you can test out the Gold membership on Xbox Live (or, you could get a 48-hour free test).
Until they're out of old models, that is.
Plus another $200+ needed in extras just to game right.
yet to get it up to par (and into the 21st century) with regard to technology and features, it still would cost more.
Nobody wants an arcade anyway. I'll be getting the new 360 later on this year, looks slick.
they're practically giving those things away. Since I already use my PS3 for a media center and live too far out to get broadband internet, I would consider buying an arcade 360 just so I can play Halo, Gears and Mass Effect.
cant you see its aimed at people that might play it for maybe 4 hours a week?
its expensive because it has no hdd or wi fi!
Whats gonna happen to the Elite? Is it staying or getting wiped out?
...never mind. LOL!!
@clown it's cheap... $699
You're getting ripped off.
Is it a perm price cut or for the old models only? $149 is a good price point!
wthouth a hd is almost useless!
USB flash drive?
you gotta be kidding
I'm not sure if it has one or not, Greenberg didn't say. This new model looks good, and i relly do want Mass Effect 2 and Alan Wake. Just worried about RROD issues...as nobody really addressed if this new slim 360 will have newer parts.
Should be more like $99 instead....with 5 years of warranty for the RROD.
i knew there was gonna be a price drop
what about the elite price ? was there a price on kinect? maybe I missed it when i fell asleep...add that to the $300 for the new x360 and we have at least $400 just for hardware...not this day and age.
i think its $50 knocked of each sku except that 'sexy box 360'
they are going to buy this not realizing they need a hard drive.
Holiday season is 360 season. This year certainly won't be different.
If you're a serious gamer the Xbox isn't even an option anymore. They're totally ignoring pro gamers and now aiming mainly at mommy and daddy and your little sister to make that cash.
... Looks like I'll be selling my Xbox 360 Elite in order to get the new redesigned model.. :)
