Well Yet another bundle has been announced for the 360 and its Very Cheap. You get the new Xbox360″Slim”/Kinect/Contro/Ki nect Adventures and a 4GB Flash Drive.
look we all know kinect will sell, but lets not pretend that it works how it should or even bring anything new to the table.
4 gigs is pathetic. Anyone who says otherwise needs to be eradicated from the gaming industry, and n4g forums.
Remember the old arcade had 512mb,i believe you need to do research before making comments like that.were talking about casuals here,they dont care about HDD space and HD games.look at how the wii has been running laps around sony and MS.
if it has 512kb of memory a casual would go WOW 512 sound massive!!!
i worked at gamestop for a few years. not once did i hear a casual express disgust with nor even inquire about how much memory the wii has. it simply doesn't matter. the ps3 could have a terabyte and it wouldn't matter, they don't care.
Which PS3 troll were you before? Why so much hate for MS.
Exactly Drop Dead. Its not the fact that casuals know of it, its the fact that I can buy a freakin 4 gig sd card for under $10 bucks. They could have just made it 20 gigs, but no, you fuckin fanboys and casuals really dont care if you get ripped off. What the hell is wrong with you people on here?! Bubbles for you Fred.
is anyone else freaking tired of the KINECT puns.
I get it: it sounds like connect. Shut up.
This seems familar... http://n4g.com/news/571446/...
It will "Kinect" with idiots. That's for sure.
It will kinect with idiots and move will move money right out of my wallett.
4GB is plenty, although it being in flash drive form has left me perplexed, wii only has something like 512MB or something? so its fine
So you're saying the 360 is fine with last gen hardware?? The Wii is so obviously a redressed Gamecube so it get's a pass (+ it's been really cheap since launch). The 360 is supposed to be a next gen console yet it only has 4 GB?? That's just unacceptable.
You're trying to whitewash the Wii being a next-gen console just to attack a $100-discounted 360 arcade? If having an arcade model is unacceptable then why does the market say otherwise?
If MS had made an HDD standard, then developers would not have been so limited. The could have made games that took advantage of the HDD space. But thanks to the cheap arcade, that's not possible. Fora 3, for example. If you don't have an HDD then you're screwed and can't used about half the cars in the game. That's why it's unacceptable.
I love that bullshit line "If the 360 had a standard HDD", The ONLY reason why people said that was because PS3 games needed mandatory installs, and because you think your getting the best of the best, you think the installs are making it better. Developers dont need an HDD, just like they are fine with DVD (But blue ray would be nice).
You still haven't explained why you disregarded the Wii and now you went from 4GB being unacceptable to no GB. Since you used Forza 3 as an example, it requires 1.9 GB of space but the new Arcades offer 4GB anyway. They also discountinued older 360's for the new 360S as well. Yes your 2nd arguement (I really don't see it tying into your first one) holds ground when Forza 3 was released 'til June '10 and I would agree with you 100%. We're in the now though and your first argument still doesn't hold a good explanation.
Last I checked ms console ships with 250 gig. If you want less that's your choice so don't be so hypicritical.
So even with Kinext MS is trying to rip off its consumers.
meanwhile in the real world xbox 360 arcade slim with kinect is outselling the ps3 move bundle everywhere. lol N4G
With this and Reach it will seal Sony's Faith.BOOOOOYAAAAAAAA.This is going be the last Chapter in Sonys Quest for Second Place.Just look at Amazon for the Real Answer.LoL
Find ANY stat indicating Amazon having at least a 20% foothold on the US market (heck even UK) AND THEN come back to spout Amazon numbers. PS3 slim was outselling 360 on amazon during the early months of '10 yet NPD had 360 ahead of PS3 in almost every month (almost twice as much sometimes).
I was waiting for one of your comments ever since Microsoft's E3 ended because I remembered the comments you made. so how do you respond to the comments you made before e3. To the people not knowing what I am talking about Bobdog626 made these comments before E3. Just sit back and relax Sony fans The Show is about to Begin.Grab Popcorn and Soda.Don't be Afrade of the Big Bad Wolf.Just close your eyes Sony FB Just close your eyes .LMAO #22 Natal will Change Everything Don't Hate just sit back relax and watch the Show #7 Natal will steal the Show If this hand gesture thing is true Sony and The Big N better Watch Out .Can't wait 4 E3. #4 looks1000000000000000000000 times better than the PS3 The first Blow before E3 Starts.Better Run Sony Better Run Far Far away. #1.6.2 Even darkride66 is Speechless Even you know Bad Ass when you see it.Microsoft is Way 2 Powerful for Sony.You lost this time Sony.No more games ,its all or nothing Sony.Your playing against the Best in the World,Bill Gates and All.Halo Reach is Going to Kick Ass 2.Its all over this Time Sony.LMAO #2.5.1
One of my Best Game on the PS3 is God of War3 .It Really is a Work of Art.But to say the 360 is nothing is Wrong.MassEffect Proved this.For the Money the PS3 Hands Down is the Way to Go but i still Like the 360 better.Both Console are Great thats why we have this War going on .Its like being on a Team ,You want your Team to Win hense the Name FanBoys.All in All its Great Fun.LOL PS Sorry if i Ofended you UP. Don't be so Serious.
You act like all ps3 fans are ps3 fanboys. I know everyone has at least made a couple fanboy remarks but you have made consent fanboy remarks that rival the worst ps3 fanboy remarks.
My boot will kinect with your face if I hear one more kinect or move pun
only with blid and stupid fanboys kinects been done before minus the stupid updates and the lag eye toy failed this will to.
Child of Eden or heck....even Kinect Sports seem to be offering much more than an Eye Toy-only game. That's just me personally.
They don't need to market to "us" the hardcore anymore. Let's face it we already bought the xbox. Xbox has been marketing to hardcore for 10 years! This will sell like hot cakes to the casual gamers. You know people who would never ever come to this site.
It's the Little Big Planet effect. 20's to 30's couples want a PS3 with Move. The boy and girl both just want to have fun! Hardcore for him and casual for her...and they both experiment with the other type of gaming. It only does fun. ;) The 360 won't even be an option for most people this Christmas.
Nope...In my household, I'm 30 and my wife is 30, we prefer the Xbox 360.
Look, I'm ok with this whole digital future things... Microsoft wants to support it we all know that because let's face it they don't want to have their next generation machine run blu-ray after all... SO WHY I ASK YOU DO THEY GIVE YOU 4GIGS TO PLAY WITH? People don't know how cheap it'd be for them to give you 60GIG+ there'd be no extra shipping, there#s no extra plant costs because they allready do it. How about just get rid of ALL you arcades and old 360's and just sell a 120gig 'S' and a 250gig 'S' both with wi-fi, yes costs will go up but it could seriously encourage downloads which Microsoft get's a nice little bonus for. I hope they don't do this next generation and offer a arcade version. The wi-fi is great, the new design is great... although is it's like the old PS3's it'll gather quite a bit of dust. I'm willing to bet those compasative buttons and shiny case costs more to do per unit than offering a new hard drive. Speaking as someone who bought a 60gig model, how do you guys the ones who BOUGHT hard drives feel that Microsoft has made that expensive hard drive incompatible? I'd be quite angry... especially considering if they offer a arcade they'll offer a slim hard drive. Even 60gigs feels very small... I'm considering buying a PS3 drive... 4 gigs is borderline pointless... want to install games? Well be careful there's only 4 gigs some games go upto 8... want a couple downloadable games well be careful... you may run out of space.
and add the 120 gig hdd from my elite.
My psp has more space...
4gb arcade $199, 250gb elite $299, hardrive ad on for the arcade version $150+, you LOSE money in the long run if you buy the arcade people. M$ can go eat a d*ck
Kinect is going to sell sh1tloads. Regardless. And as much as I support MS and luv my three 360's..... That 4gig arcade is priced too expensive. Seriously, I could understand if it was 60gigs at $199 but 4???!? Shouldn't have been priced at $149. We are too far into the 360's lifecycle to only see a $100 price drop from 2005 regardless of changes made. Look at PS3, started at 600, four years later it's at 300 and a much better value IMHO.
Agreed. I love my 360 but MS is ripping people off with the 4 gig model. Not...Enough...Space...
i will buy it either im goin for the kinect 300 dolla bundle or im going for the 200 doller arcade im not a 360 fan so im sure 4 gigs is enough for only halo reach gears 1,2,3 and cuple other 360 games i like if anything just buy a flash stick and use mem from that to store game saves but 199 is kinda sweet spot atleast still get the wireless they cud have put a hdd in it atleast 60gig but remember everyone this is microsoft they love ripping off everyone the 299 and 199 bundles are nice for average gamers but for the hardcore thier gonna have 2 spend 450 bucks for a full kinect 360 slim experience glad ps3 is my main console :)
anyway the new arcade version still got the slot for the hd...so u can go to upgrade whenever u want...this xbox will outsell ps3..(well its already doing if u go to check on vgchartz)
I stick with my good old White version of my Xbox 360 pro 60G.
