Xbox 360 Core?


I was wondering. I already have a Wii (great for sports, not much else). Anyway, I’m looking at the 360 Core. What do you guys think? All I want to do is play games in home (i.e. no Xbox live) and will buy a memory card.

  1. no the core is a rip off because u cant get live or updates or anything save for a used one w. a hdd or jsut a new one w. a hdd

  2. Memory card sucks. If you really want a Core system you can buy a Hard Drive for $50 on eBay.

    I suggest just buying a Premium System

  3. Apparently, The Xbox 360 core is being discontinued. (probally not true) however, you will find your self wanting everything the premium system has, including the 20GB hard drive (really only 13GB) and xbox live. The core isn’t really worth it in my opinion, but if you are not intrested in online gameplay or HDMI; go for it

  4. you should just stick with the Wii if u not going to use xbox live. however i would still atleast get the hard drive set up

  5. Which Xbox 360 system is right for you? CNET says “you’ll be saving yourself money and aggravation in the long run” by going with the premium package over the core one. For $100 less, the core package comes with (1) wired controller, standard A/V cable, and the console, while the premium system throws in extra goodness like the hard drive, remote, HD cables, and a wireless controller.

    This buyer’s dilemma might not even apply given the shortage of both systems in stores. For those that could, any core system buyers out there? If so, are you happy with your purchase?

  6. The Core isn’t worth it. It is $70 cheaper than the Premium, but you’re going to have to buy a Memory Unit which costs $40 by itself. That means you’re losing a lot of system functionality for $30.

    You don’t have to pay for Xbox Live to get some of the best stuff. Demos, trailers, chatting, all the great community features that make Xbox Live popular.

    You’ll also need a hard drive to download patches. Not to mention that a hard drive is required for playing original Xbox games.

    Not to mention that despite what Microsoft said when they released the system, games are starting to come out that *require* the hard drive to play. This will likely be limited to MMOs for now, but hard drives are a big incentive for developers, so they may choose to use them later on.

    All in all, the core system is not worth it.
