A wonderful addition to MSRPgamer.com, OH WAIT.....Making a thread now because you think they'll be hard to find is just stupid. Let's stick to actual deals, not speculation and retail pricing. There is no deal here.

I see people complaining already but really it doesn't seem like that bad of a price for the 4GB Xbox alone at $200 or with Kinect at $300.

Kinect can go die in a fire but I may be getting the $200 one just because it has the built in wi-fi and my Xbox is ancient.

It has 4GB of flash storage. Just like the last Arcade model had only 256MB or was it 512MB. This model can still use a HDD once those become available at retail.

Then how would the current Arcade (512 Mb of internal storage) work?

The thing that bugged me about the 4Gb model was that (according to Kotaku) MS doesn't have any hard drives ready for them.

OMG, well that makes sense..I guess I need to go back and brush up on the slim 360 facts..like I also thought you couldn't add HDD's to it and that would only come built in (that's why I confused initially) but with you saying you can..so much confusion..

don't complain about this being posted, when everyone was okay with people posting "Xbox 360 Slim available for $299!" etc

there's been plenty of msrp threads made when new things come out, and bundle deals are ok by me... still passing on all this kinect crap though.

I don't know, I just remember checking file space back in the day when I had the 20gb and only noticed 16gb available with hardly anything on there. Quickly prompted a call to MSFT and they said all that is hidden system area (but I guess it was the partition..huge partition though..should be less than 2gb for 20gb for sure.)

no, not everyone was ok with those threads either. This should be in the 360 discussion forum

No HDD for the S model has been announced, but the HDD in the S can be easily removed and comes in its own proprietary case. It's smaller than the older 360 HDDs, but it is not universal like PS3s. I assume now that the S Arcade is announced a standalone HDD won't be far behind.

No one knows how to upgrade the disk with an aftermarket one yet either. I'm sure the $200 console will be a steal once someone figures it out though. MS claims proprietary drive but I'm sure there's something out there you can swap it out with.

Even though it's MSRP it will be considered a deal to many and even if it wasn't it's going to get a lot of traffic so I dont think it belongs hidden there.

Slightly off topic I think it's time for Sony to announce something...

The issue is the casing, just like the older 360 HDDs. It still uses a casing that is unique to the 360 S. I am sure it'll be done eventually, but I don't think enough of the cases for the HDDs are out there to warrant this.

ha! I wasn't here for that, but with how the Wii went down I could imagine this was every other day, and "Wii Spotted In-Stock at an Exxon Gas Station - YMMV"

and I'm sure you'll be good OP and update it as this comes closer, indicating whose got the hottest deal..so no harm, no foul.

And no one wants to void their warranty for the sake of experimentation.

It won't void the warranty on anything but the HDD unit, the console warranty would still be in tact.

So with the new "Arcade" SKU is it safe to assume that we'll be seeing another price drop on the arcades out in the wild or is $149.99 about as low as it'll go?

I've seen a few videos and heard chatter on other boards of people talking about how it would void their warranty for the system as well.

How does taking apart a peripheral ruin the systems warranty? That's like if I took apart the controller that came with my system voided the systems warranty.

Makes sense. If the hard drive were available right away, why would anyone buy it -- at first, anyway? It'll probably end up being around $100 at retail, which would be almost the same as buying a 250GB model. The 4GB model is aimed at the same person as the existing arcade: People who mostly want to play disc-based games and probably don't have much inclination to go online, download games or DLC, or trouble themselves with installing games to the HDD. A lot of people out there are content to play games straight-up, off the disc... the "old fashioned way". For them, the 4GB model is all they need.

I must say though, I'm disappointed to find the arcade model is matte black. I would love for my 250GB to be matte finish; the shiny surface looks bad to me and attracts dust like crazy. But MS always does crap like that. I hated that my old Premium and Elite models had that hideous chrome drive tray.
Being cheap doesn't mean you have to be a liar and a thief. Have some respect for yourself.

If the modded hard drive is detected the console can be banned from xbox live. Which I believe effectively would ruin the warranty.

I understand that is what you heard, but this is my first time hearing it. So I am voicing my opinion on what you heard. Perhaps you know more than what you initially said, so you can clear up my concerns with what you heard.

Yeah that makes perfect sense and stands true to the older 360 models with after market HDDs. The way I understood what he said was that just opening the HDD would ruin the 360 warranty.

So this is a arcade slim pretty much?

MM I might get one of this with the kinect bundle and just upgrade the HDD later.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I have a feeling that upgrading the hard drive will end up being the more expensive option based on previous pricing for proprietary Microsoft hard drives.
