Found 3rd Dec 2007
Kids have asked for one and i don't want to pay much as they have already got most other consoles so was going to get the Arcade edition from Argos.
I have read up a little and it says its not backwards compatable is that because there is not hard drive ? if so when money permits and i can afford a hard drive will they be able to use the original Xbox games .

Thanks for any advice

Yes - you're completely right. The reason you need the hard drive is because of the emulation software that is installed....

The only thing to be aware of is that hard drives tend to be about £50 atm so unless you get one second hand or there is a price drop you may be better off going for a pro/premium

yes,

IF you get the software update which you will need to connect to xbox live or download the file off the internet and put it on a CD,then play it in your xbox to update the software

Thanks left rep for you both.

I have looked at the others but kids want the arcade games and the 5 games on offer at argos so thought it would be cheaper in the long run to buy this then the hard drive.

hiya mate, i have seen an advert for xbox 360 with 10 games for 220, i think it may be a premium, its only in store, so ask them about this offer. The advert came on TV

Yeah i think thats the arcade deal he's on about. It's an arcade.

I got a core (like an arcade) when i got my xbox, it was a stunning deal but I don't think not having a hard drive really affected me. All i use the hard drive (which i bought from john lewis after about 3 months of owning my xbox) is for game saves and occassionally demos, so it's not really a mojor problem if you don't have one.
