Hey. The gaming thread is like.. 4 threads down.

yes get the regular, the arcade doesnt include any of the extras like hard drive and good video cable, etc........it's the original core system, they just changed the name. basically you need a hard drive so you'd have to buy that anyway
The regular system comes with a 20GB hard drive (this is completely necessary) and a wireless controller (the arcade comes with a wired controller). If you get the arcade you are either going to have to buy a memory card for like $25 which will only hold save games, or you will have to buy the hard drive which is $100 for 20GB or $180 for 120GB. I don't see a reason for anyone to buy the arcade version at all. You will spend more money upgrading it than just out right buying the Premium. Get the white box, it is your best bet if the Elite is out of the question. I believe you also get Marvel:Ultimate Alliance and Forza Motorsports 2.

You guys.. this is the reason people keep making threads like this and don't go to the gaming thread.
