    I am going to go get a 360 (YES!!:cornut: ). I am currently deciding between two cosole types: a premium or the elite. I'm not too happy about spending 80 extra dollars, but if it's worth it, I'd do it. I have an older xbox, a friend gave it to me a while ago, and I've only played the two halo games, because they kick ass! I've never been able to go on live, but I'm gonna get a gold membership. What should I do?:tard:

    the elite is only really worth it if you buy A LOT of TV shows (movies get deleted automaticly after you watch them) and downloadable content and if you have a 1080p TV with HDMI. i would suggest the regular premium unless you feel the extra $70 plus tax is worth a 120 gig HDD and a black case

    Hmm
    If your tv has a HDMI port
    And you think you will be downloadin a fare few things on it
    And are anal about the color of it (black consoles look better)
    Get it

    But there is a way of usein a PC hd with a 360 and there cheaper (dont have link)

    I like the white console better, actually.
    I think, for only $80 more, the Elite is a steal (good thing).
    If you have the money, Elite, if you want a basic but solid system with a game and nice lunch ($30-worth), go for Premium.

    I have the same problem too. But the thing is, I may be getting new T.V's next year so should I just get the 360 Elite and use the regular cables till I get the new T.V or just get the premium?

    I'll say get the elite if you have a good home theater system and the premium if you just have regular standard tv and whatnot.

    Save your $70 and buy Gears of War. Unless you are going to download TV shows, which I think is a waste of money, the 30 gig drive is fine. If you really want a black console that bad I will paint it for you for $25 and your still ahead.

    Well with the Elite you are never going to run out of memory no matter what I don't think you need a whole bunch of TV shows just to fill up the space the Kameo demo is like 1 GB and since when you get the premium you are really only getting 13 GB and 3 probably goes to games and 2 to arcade titles that leaves you 8 GB for Demos etc. but with the Elite, although it would be fine with just 80 GB you are never really going to run out of space

    You could just buy a bigger hard drive for cheaper though.

    Although the elite isnt out in europe yet, I am planning on getting a premium. I can guess the elite is going to cost around £300.. and for that price I can get a bundle from play.com which includes the premium console, 3 games and an extra controller.

    Im stuck in the same situation you are. I already have enough for a Premium, and maybe if I save up like $60 more I can get an Elite.

    The thing is, all the xbox 360 accessories are in white. So if I got the elite, the colors wouldn't really match well. I dunno why, but for some reason it would bother me having a black controller and a white one, with a white cam and other white accessories.

    Also, the first Xbox was black, so the Elite bores me with its colors.

    But 120 GB for $80 more?!?!? Wow, now thats a bargain im willing to pay for..

    nfanboy, i like nintendo a ton, but I still want a 360. They kick ass! They both have their strong points, and I want one to enjoy online play (and halo and other great xbox exclusives), and the wii for prty games and whatever.

    Thanks guys! I don't have a 1080p projector, and my sound system isn't great, so I went with a premium. I don't download tv shows, and this way I was able to grab crackdown with halo 3 beta. YEEEEA! I love the 360!

    The Elite is ugly, the white 360 is so slick, the black 360 is so well... black 360.
    I would get the Elite however because if you buy the Premium and run out of HDD space Microsoft will charge you hundreds of $ for a new one.
