help me find the correct xbox 360 , pleeease

Hi, I need some help please. My daughter has decided she wants to buy an xbox 360 out of her christmas money, for her bedroom.

We bought one just before christmas with the kinnect, a 4gb package, and this is used downstairs.

Im trying to find a 4gb with built in wi-fi but am unsure what to type in the search engines because Im unsure whether its the elite version or arcade.

I think the arcade version is the old version but need this confirmed.

Also, we're looking to purchase 12 months live and i was wondering whether the same account can be used for both xboxes. And where's the best place to purchase xbox live when the free month runs out.

TIA for any help, as you can tell Im a bit of an xbox novice, I've been converted from the wii to xbox so Im learning !

All of the slims have the built in wifi. None of the older ones do. For those, you will have to buy the wifi adapter.

You could search for "Xbox Slim 4gb".

the 4gb is neither the elite or arcade. Its the slim, the arcade and elite are the old style console.

You'll want the 4gb Slim version, no?

You can use 1 account on 2 xboxs, only 1 at a time though, and the account will have to be kept on a USB stick, this allows plug and play on your account with whatever xbox you fancy.

Of course they can, but they both need their own xbox live gold subscription

They can both play on black ops splitscreen with 1 account on 1 console, as black ops allows guests.

For 2 playing on 2 consoles you'll need 2 accounts, and 2 copies of black ops.

When you first sign up to Xbox Live you automatically get 1 month free if you choose the silver option.

We had 1 month free with the xbox we bought recently, does the 1 month free come as standard or just with certain xboxes, or just when you sign up to it ?

Whenever you create a new gamertag you get a months free, nothing to do with the x box being new or not , hope this helps .

There is a limit on the number of times u can do this per console, so it CAN matter if the xbox is new in thqt respect

Thanks for all the replies I really appreciate it, ending up fetching it from Argos, its all set up with one months free and my OH signed up with Very and got 24 months gold (2 x 12 mths) for £43.95 !! Using a code off here, which is a bit of a bonus.

Thanks again everybody
