    I've got a 360 that looks like an Elite. I just need a 120GB HDD.

    What MS need to do is to stop makeing its drive propriaty and sell the core console then anyone who wants a Hard drive can get one cheap on ebuyer or places and have the option to select what size they want for their needs.

    Then I would not need a external hard drive connected to my 360 via USB with all my music, videos and pictures on.

    I have not decided if £330 is expensive for the extra £100GB and a HDMI port when the premo can be bougth for £230. £100 extra for 100GB is £1 per gig and I think maybe its ok but could be cheaper.

    I won't even contemplate buying any sort of 360 until I know I can get one with the new improved CPU and GPU cores. Even then I won't get one until I know the reliability issues have been fixed. I'll also probably wait until the price is reduced more. Then and only then will I buy one, and I'll get an Elite.

    Honestly, in the US where there's a $5 difference between the Elite and the PS3 60GB, if the price was this close come Xmas and there were actually good games and Playstation Home was actually good then I would go with the PS3.

    Seriosuly?? only $5, PS3 would def get my attention, mainly cos it has blu-ray in it, while if u want hi-def movie's via 360 its another £120 (don't no what it is in usa) for the drive, so ps3 looks like a good buy at the moment.

    For instance was in my local game store today, if i traded in my ps2 slimline, i get the ps3 with 2 sixaxis controllers, 2 games, 1 blu ray movie, and a hdmi cable for £379.99, which is a pretty good deal in mho.

    it has a to high failure rate to be a viable buy.

    except. that 5 dollars is after the price drop, and only on the 60 gig, and now sony is dropping that sku for the 80 gig, which is still expensive.

    I like my elite. and am glad i didn't go with a ps3 which just seams to turn into a over glorified ps2 due to the lack of games(my flat mate has one). You can only play resistance so many times....

    /\ the "price drop" was implied, so you didn't have to explain that part of it..., and I was saying that if it was that close come this Xmas when the "presumed" pricedrop is supposed to hit for the 80GB (and games, Playstation Home and rumble debut) I would more than likely consider getting the "over glorified ps2". OMG what an ignorant thing to say. Honestly, the Elite in itself is an overly glorified 360 that doesn't offer much of anything over what the 2-year old Premium system does. The only thing the Elite has that the PS3 doesn't (and I'm currently speaking of the 60GB PS3) is the 120GB HD and a better selection of games, which to me there are only like 3 real must-haves out of the 100's of games already out and one of those is already on the PS3, and to me it makes up for that due to the full BC (in the US atleast, but that's where I'm basing my argument).
