    elite or not?

    im thinking of getting an elite because i like the sound of the hd movies and what not for download in the future, but cant i just get a premium and then buy an external hdd and plug it into the usb and save some $$ and still be able to download what i want from live? or not? thanks

    I don't think you can put any of the stuff you download from the marketplace on an external HDD.

    Assuming this works.. You could always purchase the Xbox 360 Core package and pick up an Xbox 360 Elite HDD later on. That way your console is quite similar to that of the elite. Except for the colour that is.

    i suppose, i forget, is the core the same as premium but without the hdd? or is there more differences?

    edit: oh the cables, so can i get a core and then get hd cables and then will it be the same as a premium bar the headset and wireless controller and hdd? and use my own Ethernet cable?

    Basically their the same yes.

    Just some prices..

    Xbox 360 Core System: $299.00
    Xbox 360 Premium System: $399.99
    Xbox 360 Elite System: $479.00

    Xbox 360 120 HDD : 179.00
    Regular HDD: 20 GB HD

    From this view point it seems like it would be best to purchase the Elite. Seeing as purchasing a xbox 360 along with a 120 GB HD will bring you to around the same price. However if you don't plan on downloading lots of content I suggest on getting the premium system.

    The difference between the core and premium is the Premium comes with a HDD (20GB) a wireless controller, headset, chrome DVD drive, component and composite combo cable, and an ethernet cable. The core comes with a wired controller, white DVD drive, composite cables, and no HDD. I wouldn't get the core though, it is a very bad value compared to the premium and elite since the core and a 120GB HDD would cost the same as the elite.

    It is, but it would be pointless to get the core. If you get the Elite it will be the same price as buying the core and the HDD plus you would get HDMI, a wireless controller, etc.

    Edit: I'm not sure about the US HDD, I assume it would work, but I'm not 100% sure

    Edited my previous post with prices. Going to have to say I agree with Paintballer. I would go for the elite system and spend the extra $100.00. However if you don't have the money on you then I would suggest on getting the Xbox 360 Premium system with the 20gb hd.
