    Question Thinking of getting new Xbox 360

    Hi all,

    I had the old core system but it didnt have the hdmi feature I was looking for so I have just sold it today.

    A few questions for you if you could help that would be fantastic.

    1\ I would like the new 360 to have the hdmi feature in it, I see there is now core, arcade, premium and elite. I am not really intending on going on line, I still have my old 20gb hard drive with plenty of space on it. I am on a very tight budget so I think the elite will be out.

    Which model should I go for?

    2/Anyone know what the best package deal is?

    3 If I wish to mod it will it be easy to do I managed to do the first hitatchi drive eventually lol.

    Any hints on what I should be looking for?

    Thanks in advance

    At Gamestation its the same deal (same company now).I could have had a new game (FIFA 09, Far Cry 2 or Fable 2....all worth nothing now) or a new controller for £200.

    Try your local woolworths, chances are incredibly low of finding stock but some stores have 50% off everything including consoles so you can get a arcade for stupidly cheap. Arcade consoles have HDMI and are cheapest, I thought some places were selling them for around £100 a couple of days ago.

    You will get a liteon now flashable.

    No all drives are hackable, best to get a falcon/jasper board with lite-on so it has the extra heatsinks and cooler running chips.
