You are basically correct, except for the price of the controller.

You said the wireless controller was 49.99, well that is sorta true. If you bought the normal xbox360, you would get a wired controller which is 39.99. When you upgrade the the premium package, you substitute your wired controller for the wireless, which makes the upgrade to wireless controller really only 10 dollars, not 49.99, so it is not quite as good a deal as most people think (advertising works).


Even with this little misconception, it is stil a great deal for the premium package For the harddrive alone, it is worthit in my opinion.

Even if you plan to upgrade the harddrive, you will need m$'s purely for the aesthetic look of the outside. Otherwise, you will have wires coming out the top and a harddrive sitting open on top.

You are going to ruin the beuty of this new xbox360, Just Kidding. I guess it is a personal choice. But, the harddrive is really only a $60 item as you won't really need to buy a $40 memory card. For me I am willing to spend it for the asthetics alone, but others may not.

true enough, $40 for the memory card is a fucking joke. they are pretty much making it the most feasible to purchase the $400 version, but why even offer the $300?? "so people that aren't "hardcore" gamers can still get in on it", well even the casual gamer is gonna need the $40 memory card to save anything. so the basic package is gonna be $340, your right. imho they are corporate bastards

preorder?!?! i WILL win one yet Razz cuz i can't afford one lol Razz
