Exactly,who the hell would want to buy the arcade honestly, they even said some games are restricted a bit by the possibility that some people don't have HDD's I think thats a bit dumb.
they would still need to spend another 100 some bucks on a HDD(180 still for 120 one I think?)
According to an anonymous "mole" close to Ars Technica (with a reliable track record, by the way), Microsoft will reduce the price of Xbox 360 models in early September. Provided the source makes good on his claims again, the Arcade model (no hard drive) will drop from $279 to an attractive $199. The Pro model (60GB) will revert from $349 to the current clearance price of $299, while the Elite model (120GB) will drop from $449 to $399. Microsoft was not immediately available for comment when contacted by GamePro on Friday.
"Not making hard drives mandatory was a dumb decision by Microsoft. Especially now that they offer so many HD specific features. Making Hard Drives cost more than 1.50 per gigabyte was an even dumber decision by Microsoft.
1) Yes, the Arcade sucks. In fact, it's objectively not just bad, but Evil. It's primary purpose is to fool gift-givers and casual gamers into buying a product that doesn't do what they think it does.
2) This is still good news, because it basically confirms the other rumored price drops.
