Might be buying xbox 360, questions.

Do I need to buy the one that's 299 or the one that's 199? What's the difference? What do I need that 60gig for? Halo3 worth buying? I played 1 in college every day and night .

2009 Pontiac G8 GT white hot

I'd go for the 60gig, if you plan on getting xbox live gold. you can download demos and extra content you wont be able to store on the arcade version. H3 was over hyped in my opinion. it was basically H2 with a few added features, however if you want to finish the story from halo 2 i would recommend it. not a bad game just too much of the same

+1 for the 60 gig reasons but I liked Halo 3. You won't be disapointed. Pick up a used copy for cheap and enjoy.

if you get it used you will get a 20gig HD since they just uped it to 60 end of last month. but gamestop and others should offer you some type of warranty, however i dont think it will match microsoft's

I wouldnt buy a used 360 at all, Due to the RROD and numerous CD drive failures (mine is dead, the cd drive), many people Trade their 360 in when they get the RROD and its really not safe to buy one, just in case you bring your new toy home and 3 hours into a gaming session, your 360 happens to start flashing those lovely RROD's...

dont get the 199 arcade edition wont be able to save anything since it doesnt come with any kind of hard drive 60gb is the best way to go or if u want the the black elite which i have you'll practically never run out of free space

Are you supposed to save the games on the hard drive or is it just for downloads and stuff?

no it uses the HD to save games or you could use a memory card but the saves are pretty big you would probably only get a couple games on a card.plus right now the only HD you can buy separate is the 120GB and its $150-170 if you were to decide you want one later

Kaji - there is a deal on the elite w/ Forza and some other game on Dell.com right now.

I just bought one.

It's a rental!

I have a halo 3 xbox 360 pro I might sell for the right price. It seriously has maybe seen 150 hrs of playing. I don't ever use it cause I don't have time for it.

The only real difference is pretty much the HD.
