Advanced demand for Microsoft Corp.'s new Xbox 360 4GB bundle that includes the Kinect motion controller and game increased this week at retailer Amazon.com pos sell out of the stand-alone Kinect hardware.
4Gb probably wont be enough to game updates and kinect updates... Just saying.
I don't want to make this come out as an incrimination, but do you own a 360? If you check out your memory, you'll see updates of any sort don't take that much space. Note: Nothing wrong with you don't since it seems fair to assume updates can take up a bunch of space.
everybody seems to want Kinect, people know a good product when they see one
considering all the flack that came out about Reach needing a hard drive instead of the internal or even a usb drive. I would imagine MS will address this with the new update. @hugi: This is the better deal of the two when it comes to just getting a unit and kinect. Those who already have one will get the kinect. Those who want the full package will but the 250gb 360 and kinect.
Can I use clap on clap off to get this kinetic to the gui. If not I dont want it. I want 110% hands free control. Clap on clap off clap clap clap!
What you and #1 said is probably the most ignorant selective reasoning I'vs seen all day. You forgot 6 years worth of knowledge about the 360 after HALO REACH came out? 4 gigs of storage isn't enough for updates that replace each other every update? WAH!? The old arcade needed a disc or a memory card for everything. Maybe people don't want a 250gig HDD because they have more memory elsewhere. I have a 8gig thumb drive on my HDTV alone lol.
Kinect takes up just 190MB hardly 4GB. And people are buying the 250GB more since its actually the overall highest ranking piece of gaming hardware on the Amazon bestseller chart.
what do you know about 360 updates?
People are fools I guess. How much does it cost to upgrade the 4GB model to a real hard drive? Do they even know what they're buying? Don't go for what looks like the best deal based on price. Look at what you get.
But they were sold out at best buy in signal hill......here we go
The only thing that I haven't received answer about Kinect is simply: How will I move in FPS or 3rd person Action game? Really.
With your X360 controller.
But I thought I am the controller with Kinect?
I am straining with a 20G launch unit, what can you do with 4G.. adding a HD is just a rip off with the prices MS charges... better buy the bigger box and at least you are semi future proof
Please I got to ask what is causing you strain on a 20gb? Also, you do realize this has been stated over and over that this is a poor excuse about 20gb and having to buy a hardrive with the options and features now avaialable since it launched in 2005. You now have the capability of adding an additonal 34gigs with two 16gb sticks right? You do you know that streaming is avalable for Zune Marketplace right? You can save all those videos and game saves on the thumb drive right? You do know the thumb drives are cheap alternative right? Like $20 for a 16gb.
yes, I did add a 16G stick.... I need more space all I have is a couple of game installs, a lot of game saves (doesnt take much), presently 2 demos and NO vids... I have no idea what is taking up most of the 20G space... dont do Zune...ipad/touch is the way I roll
I bought an arcade unit for 199 2 years ago and 59 dollar used excellent condition 60gb hdd. I think I fared well.
Go to dealextreme.com and buy the 250 gig Xbox 360s HDD for like $50, it takes a couple weeks to get, but it's worth it. I have a 4 gig unit and a new 250 gig unit and both are amazing. I actually prefer the matte color on the 4 gb unit though, easier to clean and take care of. Also right now you can get that 4 GB deal with a year of XBL and 1600 MS points and an extra controller for $249, then spend the extra $50 on the 250 gig HDD and your set! Best deal on the market today IMHO. Also, another cheaper way to get more space is by using a flash drive or MP3 player or whatever is handy. People like to act like you need a million gigs of memory to play games and you really don't. The original Xbox was like 10 gigs and people never ran out of room. I suspect some of you are just trying to find something to complain about.
"I suspect some of you are just trying to find something to complain about" Bingo, which is what fanboys and misinformed whiners have nothing better to do.
Yes!!! i have mine pre ordered, just the kinect and a game with the full intention of reselling on ebay for profit! come on soccer moms, keep buying it and make it sold out! Oprah says so! Dont worry, if you cant buy one because they are sold out, ill sell you mine for $600.00. bwahaha $600.00 is just the amount i need to buy all the ps3 exclusives i want for next year! :) @Angelus, lets see how much longer you 360 fanboys keep defending ms.. first you defended them when they hiked the price of live and now you defend them when they are using that money for casual shovelware
So sad, you take who's company to support to a sad, strange level. Video games are supposed to be for fun. You should probably spend more time playing and having fun, instead of sitting here complaining because other people like another console that you don't. GET OVER IT.
Ivan you go boy make that bling bling.
Wow, you can't keep your story straight can you? I'm wondering if you're seriously trying to pass up your B/S as truth or if you're just doing it to give me a good laugh. Anyway, here's what you posted 8 hours ago... "I had it pre ordered on Amazon then cancelled it.. I dunno, for $200.00 (Including one game plus the kinect itself) i just have better things to buy. For instance i want DJ hero 2 and guitar hero warriors of rock then 'The fight lights out' then COD black ops then GT5 sometime in December. PLUS I already have Move and having a blast with that.. Why do i need kinect?" Keep posting though. Like I said, you're good for a laugh.
This is such a strange generation.
The kinect device is sold out on amazon in the U.S.i had to pre-order the 250 gig bundle.i got a feeling this thing is gonna sell like craazy!
probably but what will happen to the hardcore kick ass games and gamers. Im sure MS has this sorted out as long as they keep the games they are known for and the fans that support them from day 1 and on from what the xbox was all about. halos, gears, cods etc.
i got an arcade after e3/price drop and 512mb did me just fine for a couple of months. if you don't plan on downloading arcade games or installing games, 4 gigs is absolutely more than enough.
But My PS3 died again so I can't afford it.
Definitely Old News... Kinect and Black Ops will definitely empty stores in november. Beware Parents!... get yours unless you want to be just like Arnold's in "Jingle All The Way" that 1996 movie.
