News has been circulating that Microsoft is phasing out their Xbox 360 Core System in favor of ones with HDMI support, or perhaps simply getting rid of the model altogether.
Isn't this why it's selling so well on Amazon.com atm?People have no idea what's happening or am I wrong?
The number-one selling video game merchandise at Amazon is the Xbox Premium with the 20GB hard drive, not the Core.
Amazon lower the price again because that want the xbox 360 premium with the HDMI
I don't like the heavily biased site this information came from. His analysis wasn't needed and indeed unnecessary
people don't care either
Because nobody cares. Is the PS3 even in the top 5??
I hate when companies add something or take something off a console.It makes me feel like mine is so old ;P.Good thing I'm getting my ps3 in 2 months.
Odion, I hope you know I write that blog. Also the bias in that article is just satire. I don't mean a word of it :p
\/ \/ \/ \/ \/ \/
then delete the news post, its only going to cause a flamewar
A Sony fanboy rant is what it was! Nothing more.
Odion, every article I write is completely humorous in nature. If people are that clueless that they can't tell it's sarcasm, I feel bad for them. But don't think for one second I'm taking down the article. People enjoy my posts(go to the forums). The website is only a little over a month old, and I want to gain some sort of viewership. This website which I found a few days ago seems like the perfect place, not only to contribute , but to help my website out as well. I hope you will come to accept it
"Next time play it safe and only buy Sony products, like I do." Are you in Sony's Payroll? teehee!
they should phase it out,the premium is now$349
just sell it with disclaimer: (you will have a good experience with the core system however there may be some games that require a hard drive. we are committed to provide support for non - HD dependant games to insure your gaming satisfaction,... but if you want maximize your core experience, please ante' up and make an addition purchase of one of our discounted high quality HD's)
The core is no more!
I think they should put HDMI in Cores, because I know when I get mines from back from M$ they won't put the HDMI port in there.
It's actually cheaper to just get a Premium.
But Sony is genius for TEMPORARILY lowering their price by $100? Sony is the one doing the clearance sale on their 60gig to make room for the inevitable price INCREASE (back to $600) when the 80gig is the only option. So what if they drop the core 360? HDMI is not 100% necessary to play games and someone can just pick up a HDD if they want to.
which they're not. The 60GB SKU will always be at $499. The 80GB SKU was introduced at $599. There's no increase in price, only the introduction of a new package at the old packages original price point. Who's to say that Sony won't drop the price of the 80GB this holiday season?
finally they are going to discontinue the core system
NO HD out of the box, no hard drive, and wired controllers. Plus, it ties developers' hands. It served it's purpose but let's move on.
The ps3 is at 3 for ur info buddy...and the wii is 4
Stop posting BULLSHIT on this site it was said the other day the "Core No More!" rumors were rubbish. God dam Sony fans are getting out of hand already. Its like a place fanatic can vent their hate isn't ther any Sony forums you people can vent in?.
I think you guys need to read the article again, and then read some more articles. If you guys still don't understand what the website is about, you are clueless chums. Here's a hint: I don't even care for Sony products
why would we read it again?!?!?!? de-bubble this fool!!!!
glanced over some of your other crappy poorly written blog posts. i'm not even sure why you're a trainee. n4g turned to crap a while ago; now this just reinforces it.
Its not news and causes flame how do you think this was approved? its surely not because the average gamer thinks this rehashed subject- Joke or agenda based (or possible both) is intresting. No point in even bringing up any talk about this issue, you either buy it or you don't. How a product garners so much attention is beyond me. Is your avatar pic suppose to anger PS3 fans or are you one.
Jesus freaking christ you guys need to take chill pills. The thing I posted IS news. Filled with an extreme overthetop bias. YES. I'm not purposely trying to anger anyone. If they do so be it. The news is told in a completely tongue and cheek way. If you don't understand it power of Green I feel sorry for you. My avatar is my website, I dont see what's so difficult to understand. I'm done. I'm not going to let people on this website bother me anymore. If things I post get approved or disproved so be it. I won't be commenting anymore unless it's something positive Goodnight
Take a look at what the price drop did compare to the PS3 fire sale: http://farm2.static.flickr.... The 360's sales were spread out over 3 SKUs to Sony's 1 SKU. Add it up boys and girls.
future games will need HDD not even the 20GB premuin will not be enough. You have been beta testers, on behalf of Microsoft ; Thank you.
wow it turn out into a flamewar
Yep, here is just another absolute piece of garbage that N4G has put out bashing Microsoft and promoting Sony. This site is getting so lame, getting worse everyday. Shame on you N4G. And as the PS3 falls futher into 3rd place, I expect this site will get worse and worse.
Didn't Shane Kim say that the Core is here to stay?
why doesn't microsoft just make up their mind?
