Quote:
The standard version of Xbox 360 won't be backwards compatible with Xbox games, it has emerged today.

A representative for Microsoft this afternoon confirmed that backwards compatibility rests on making use of the removable 20GB hard drive - which isn't included in the basic 'core system' bundle (which will retail for 210).

Instead, gamers will have to purchase the 280 Xbox 360 Premium Edition - which is packaged with a hard drive - if they wish to use to the next-gen machine to play current-gen Xbox titles. Alternatively, it's possible to buy a stand-alone hard drive for an additional 70.

While the notion that the core system offers a low-cost entry to next-gen gaming is certainly a good one, it does seem surprising that you won't be able to play your Xbox games on a 360 without splashing out an additional 70 quid.

Hmm... so if you buy the Core package and want backward compatibility you have to shell out $70 bucks to get the HD to allow it. But why do that when all you have to do is shell out $30 more bucks to get the Premium package. Just another clever trap MS is using to get people to buy the Premium package which has all these other added features that most gamers aren't even going to use.... Sneaky sh!ts.

why do they bring out the core package? it has NO USE. anyone with 2 active brain cells or more can see what's the better deal.

Yup, absolute sham. So MS can pretend to make the $300 price point.



Total BS. As is the external hard drive in general. Mad

A parent buying it for their child may not know the difference and could easily get screwed over.

That's what I really don't like about it, people may get tricked into buying the wrong xbox.

The big problem here is that 90% of today's population does NOT have 2+ active brain cells.

if you want to buy the HD, it'll cost $100. that's the difference between the core and premium package.
