    Hi

    Just need a bit of advice. I've seen a deal on Gamestation where you can get the Arcade (therefore NO HDD but you do get HDMI) with any three games for 250.

    PGR4, Assasin Creed and Halo 3

    I have no real interest for xbox live but im still worried about the lack of a HDD (you do get a 256mb memory card, is this enough to store game saves?).

    What do you guys think?

    Cheers

    No HDD also means no game patches or updates or DLC (like new maps for games etc)...

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I'm pretty sure game updates are stored on an internal flash memory(same memory as where firmware updates are stored I recall).

    Otherwise while playing online with a memory card would mean you'd be playing against people with a patched game. That would kinda fuck up things, eh?

    Interesting. I wonder if patches on a memory card would reduce loadtimes :)

    Argos are doing premium + Halo3 + any game + assorted plastic tat for 250.

    I would flip the core the bird if I were you.

    You do know pretty much every xbox 360 now has a HDMI output?

    Go for a premium one, you can get a decent bundle ranging with 1-3 games with it depending where you get it from. Just be sure to check the box and ensure it's one of the newer models with HDMI.

    Game/Gameplay are doing Xbox Premium + Halo 3 + PES08 for 249.99 which doesn't look like a bad deal to me.

    In fact, the 360 has some cracking deals all over the place at the minute.
