    the arcade version is for "casual gamers" and is a joke. the memory cant hold too much. dont bother getting it, very quickly youll find that you want a harddrive.

    Yea, the arcade bundle, is definitely not the way to go. I wish the Elite had been out when I got mine, but the Pro is good enough.

    The Elite is only for those who are willing to dish out money for extra hard drive space, and that will play their 360 constantly.

    The Arcade is... is... retarded. Especially if you're going to get Live.

    Pro is kind of like the "not too hot, not too cold, but just right" from Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It has a hard drive, but still isn't too expensive. I would recommend this one for most people.

    I personally think Pro is better than Elite because its exactly the same except Elite has 100 extra GB. The only time Elite is better is if you are someone who is a big fan of arcade games and will download alot, also download movies, shows, trailers, xbox originals, etc.

    I don't download any of that stuff so I don't see the point in Elite. Though... elite being all black is cool :)

    Arcade was made to make you want to buy a Pro or Elite.

    Not even arcade games, but I would love to have that extra 100 gigs for my music, so I didn't have to hook my iPod up to my 360.

    Well it depends on the type of gamer you are. If you are a casual gamer, who doesn't play a lot of games, or download a lot of content, then the arcade version would be ideal for you. If you are a hardcore gamer who downloads eveything he sees, and plays every game he has online all the time, then the pro or elite console is more ideal.

    Don't even consider purchasing the XBox 360 Arcade Edition. Save up the extra money and buy the standard 360 (Pro) or Elite (if you are willing to spend more money for more space).

    I got the Arcade... But my friends gave me a headset, harddrive, cables and stuff so altogether it costed me £149.99... So it worked out better for me. But yea, you'd be better off getting the Pro

    I've got an elite, just pay a little extra to get the 20gb version. There's not enough memory in the arcade version; its got something like 500mb

    the HDD increase for the Elite isnt the only thing it has over the Pro version.
    Advantages of Elite
    -120GB HDD
    -HDMI port
    -HDMI Cable
    -One month Gold Membership to XBL
    -Headset (black)
    -Wireless Controller (black(not worth mentioning that but anyway)

    Its alot more then the Pro console and worth the price too, for a decent HDMI cable be prepared to pay 70~AUS Dollers for one.

    The newer Pro's have HDMI now, just an FYI for ya. I believe the Pro also comes with the 1 month, only things you mentioned that actually are different between the two would be the 120 GB HDD, and the HDMI cable, I don't think the Pro comes with one.

    All consoles come with 3 separate 1 month trials (1 per account)

    I'm happy with the arcade because I'm not thinking of going on Live anytime soon. Plus games themselves don't hold a ton of memory.

    Really? I can't live without LIVE!

    Don't get the arcade. Some add-ons you will need to play like half the maps in some games and you won't have enough memorey. And you won't be able to get demos :)

    Maps in what, Halo 3?
    How much do they take up? Plus I'm getting the hard drive for it soon.

    Yeah, it's better to buy the normal version with the harddrive. If not, buy it cheaply seperatly on eBay or something.

    500 MB for heroic and for cold storage 300 I think, but it's optional. It just gives the game more replay value. Also with GOW2
