Microsoft confirms $299, hard drive-less Xbox 360
Microsoft has confirmed
that its upcoming Xbox 360 console will debut in two flavors. A basic system with only a wired controller and standard A/V cables will be available for $299. For $399, Microsoft will bundle the console with a 20GB hard drive, wireless controller, component cables, headset, and remote control. Those bundled accessories will cost over $210 if purchased separately, so the price premium seems justified. Microsoft will apparently have more of the $399 consoles on store shelves when the Xbox 360 launches, as well.
