    The Elite Has a HDMI Port and A 120 GB hard drive and is Black (How Wonderful). If you have a HDTV with an HDMI port and are going to use the movie rental downloads (which I is only available in the USA) then I guess its ok. Otherwise just get the Premium it’s a good system if you intend just to play games e.g. gears of war

    Hey dude I just bought myself a 360 to compliment my wii.
    Get the premium package - its £80 more expensive - but well worth the extras that are included.

    The best deal right now is with Woolworths. You are getting a premium console + extra wireless controller. Gears of War, Crackdown, and PGR 3 for £299 (Thats what I got) Seperately this would all cost £430ish.

    The diff between the core and premium is as follows.

    Core has - wired controller and scart cable.

    Premium has - wireless controller, scart & composite cables (for hd), 20gb hard drive, xbox live gold (1 month trial) - xbox live headset.

    Elite is aimed at the PS3 market - overly expensive big black console - for people who absolutely have to have the "best" graphics mode available - HDMI
    (The hard drive alone is £60 and the composite cables are £20)

    You might want to wait a year until you get an Elite, the first batch will probably break before you know it.

    I don't think Microsoft is going to allow that to happen again. I'm sure they've learned the lesson from their previous launch. I want an elite so bad but its hard to save money when you're in college doing school like 24/7. Good thing theres poker...nothing like getting easy money in 2 hours.

    Hi,

    Can I ask what makes you say this? I have been looking at getting a core 360 and upgrading it by buying a hardrive seperately (the shop has a deal where you get the hardrive for £45). I do not have a full HDTV so the HD cables do not matter. Is there any other difference I should know of?

    Thanks very much
