    You want it for 360 Exlusives? Are there 250GB's of 360 exclusives worth buying?

    What i mean is i wanna buy an xbox 360 to play some of the xbox 360 games that are not on the ps3 for example: Left 4 dead, gta episodes, halo1-3, gears of war ect ect.:-D hope u understand:roll:

    I have the super elite forza 3 bundle ..I got it because of the exclusives but now I'm bored of it - and also xbox 360 is mostly about ONLINE stuff ( which I don't make use of) so bare that in mind

    Yes, I understand that.
    You asked me if to go for "Just the elite"?
    I took that to mean as opposed to the "Super Elite".

    If you're going for one with a hard drive, there are only two being produced at the moment.
    The 120GB, and the 250GB.

    So my question is "Why would you get a 250GB elite, as opposed to a 120GB elite to play a handful of exclusives"?

    Thats a tough one let me think:plol

    The hard drive in the Xbox isn't used in the same way as in the PS3. i.e. you don't need to load the games onto the hard drive in order to play them. Hence, if you choose to play the games from the disk, all you will use the hard drive for are: Downloadabale content; game saves and playing older Xbox games (non 360). The other uses for the hard drive are media content / streaming but if you have a PS3, it would probably be better to use that. In other words - you probably won't need to use anything larger than a 20GB drive on the 360 and these can be picked up for about £25. This makes the arcade a possibility.

    Agree with most of that, but, the PS3 has few games that have content installed to the hard drive. I certainly can't remember installing a single game of mine to the hard drive mandatory, or optionally.

    The 360 can save all? games to the hard drive to stop that goddamn awful noise it makes when spinning a DVD when you are playing a game.

    An elite, you can get a great deal on it from amazon with 2 free games, elite works out only slightly more then arcade that way, believe me, your be annoyed if your buy a arcade, it's half the console!

    Best to go for a 120gb elite best allrounder and price if you find the right place for the right price.
