microsoft released the arcade bundle for $279, doesn't come with a hard drive though. I'm thinking about getting it myself so I can get rid of this halo itch.

*edit*

forgot about the halo3 edition, it's freaking cool looking, $399 though.

I am new to the xbox360. What all is the hard drive used for? And one thing I saw was that the arcade version was not backwards compatible. Is that a real big deal?

I don't own one yet, just thinking about getting one. The hard drive is used for downloadable games, addons etc.

you have to get a hard drive or its pointless. its the 360s only storage device and without it you cant save anything or save you xbox live stuff and its way over priced 20gb for $99....

They have those in stores. Also, check out Costco. I think they have an extra controller and play-n-charge and something else for $399, pretty solid deal.

it is backwards compatible only if you get the HD. The HD is great for Downloading movies, videos, and demos
Xbox 360 Elite FTW

you always needed a HD to be backwards compatible b/c the origninal Xbox had a hard drive and that is how they can emulate the old games on the 360. It has been this way since day one of the 360 launch. If they figured out a way to do it with out one, this is the first I've heard of it. The Xbox 360 Arcade (aka Core) edition is the only one that isnt backwards compatible b/c no HD. Buy a HD, then they are backwards compatible.
