New Xbox 360 Starter Pack

So you bought the Xbox 360 Arcade and you are still wonder if you should just get the 512MB memory card (free) of the refurbished 20GB hard drive (19.99), so you can get in on the NXE.

Well here is another solution that you may want to consider.  Even though this is not confirmed by Microsoft, but has shown up on retailers listings, with Gamestop dating this for November 4.

Set to release on that date is the Xbox Live Starter Pack, which is to include a 60GB hard drive, a Xbox Live Headset, a Three Month Xbox Live Gold Subscription and a Ethernet Cable all for $99.

This is not a bad deal, but if you add the $99 to the price you paid for the Arcade Edition you now have the price of the Xbox 360 Pro Edition.  To those that have the 20GB older models here will be your chance to upgrade your HDD.

    but Ok with the release of this I will stop calling the "tard" pack the "tard" pack…
    actually if you get the arcade and this deal then your coming out on top…
    Arcade: 360, MU, Retail Game, and 5 arcade games + 60 GB HD & 3 mos of Live = $398 (NO HD CABLE THOUGH) or
    Pro: 360, 2 retail games, 60 GB HD, and 1 mo of LIVE (W/HD cable though)=$399…

    I would got with the arcade now if i was to get another.

    Actually, you added $100. The Arcade is $199.99 now. So, it would be $298, not $398.

  • man that was bad math for a Revenue Agent. Thanks for the heads up…
    Arcade: 360, MU, Retail Game, and 5 arcade games + 60 GB HD & 3 mos of Live = $298 (NO HD CABLE THOUGH)

  • Hello,I am Anthony Joseph.I am from Nigeria.I am an Xbox dealer.Here in Nigeria we have a serious problem about pirated Xbox.The Xbox here in Nigeria is like 75% of it is fake.Most lovers of Xbox make complaints that Xbox is fake and now prefare playstations 1,2,and 3 to Xbox.The image of microsoft has been jeopardised by pirates.However,I a dealer of Xbox would like to continue the business,but it is not profitable because people here under-rate it.So I would like the company to ship at least 200 Xbox 360 consoles,so that I can show the people that Xbox is the best.After selling the consoles we would send back all the money we would make back to the company.This way you would have gained a distributor of Xbox console.Please send us a reply as fast as you get this message.
