I was looking at the 360's available and I was wondering.......whats the catch on the Arcade system? I was just thinking about just skipping the cheaper ones and going straight for the Elite system.

I think the lack of a hardrive is detrimental

Ok thanks! I'll probably just go for the Elite.....the Pro system doesn't have an HDMI Port right?

All 360 systems have hdmi slots but the Elite comes with a hdmi cable.

You said that you where "possibly thinking about getting a 360". Does that mean that you haven't yet actually started thinking about wether you want one yet???

Only joking mate... Anyway, I have all 3 consoles and i'm on my 360 almost every night. Online is great. Definately go for the Elite. I had a the 20gb one on launch but sold it when the Elite came out. PS3 I use once in a blue moon and the Wii even less. Xbox Live is so much better than the PS3 online (which I hate as it's so basic).

To sum it up... If you want a console, 360 every time!

If you're planning on just downloading demos and game trailers, get the Pro system.

If you plan on downloading movies and Xbox games then get the Elite.

You can get a HDMI cable for cheap on newegg

I'd go for the elite, skip the arcade machine as you dont get hard drive and its essential really to have on

Could not have summed it up any better. I'm in the EXACT same stance as you are.

To determine the difference between the type of 360s, please use the Recommendation thread. To discuss different platforms, please use the System Wars forum. Thanks!
