    Some guy offered to sell me his Xbox 360 Core System for $175, i just wanna know what are the pros and cons of buying it.

    i mean its a core system, woud i be able to play Halo2 on it? Is there anything different about the core system compared to the premium system besides just the 20 gb harddrive?

    what yall think?(im thinking its a yea-duh)

    you can play any game you can play on a prem. 360 so yes Halo2. you just have wired controllers, no HDD, no HD cables and thats all..

    theres a new 360 coming out, and the prem is gonna cost as much as the core and the new one will be $400. i think it just has a bigger hard drive.

    i think its a good deal. basically half price.

    Well, the hard disk has all the files to run original Xbox games. So basically, you need the hard disk to run them. Also, the hard disk will store all your saved games and such. So you could buy the core system that guy is offering you and shell out another 99$ for the hard disk and voila, you've got yourself a premium package (For the most part that is:P)

    so i can basically turn the core into a premium by buying the harddrive?

    what NO wireless controllers? wired controllers only, damn that sucks,

    how about modding a 360? does having a core effect anything?

    and yea ive seen the black 360 with tivo, 70 gb harddrive

    but $175 is too hard to pass up

    Yea, I forgot about the whole controller thing. I dont really see it as a BIG disadvantage of having wired controllers. Unless you're sitting far from the TV and the wire gets in the way. I think wired controllers are easier because with the wireless you have to shell out some more money to get a charger pack unless you want to keep buying batteries for it. But tahts just me.

    And as for the modding, I'm not sure. I wouldnt think so.
