The New Xbox 360's Arcade Version Detailed By Amazon

We already knew that Microsoft was planning on offering a cheaper version of its new, smaller, glossier Xbox 360, but we didn't know much more about it. Thanks to Amazon Germany, now we know.

Microsoft documentation had previously outed a $US199 USD Xbox 360 S at E3 2010, planned for a fall release. says that new console bundle will come with 4 GB of storage, presumably on either internal flash memory or via USB flash drive, not on a hard drive. pegs the release of that new Xbox 360 Arcade bundle for August 20, right in the middle of this year's Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany. It also lists a price of €149, about $US189 USD. Look!

Don't be surprised, budget minded Xbox 360 owners, if Microsoft has an announcement soon.

Xbox 360 4 GB Arcade System Bundle [ - thanks, Khai!]


    4 GB? That doesn't seem like a lot. There's still the option of USB storage though.

      It's more than the 512MB memory card the Arcade currently ships with. The Arcade is for those people who don't connect to Live and thus don't download games. They only need storage to save games.

        I guess so.

        The arcade is also for replacing broken consoles.

          So true.

    4G seems a tad on the small side, considering the price. Not sure if it's just me.

    Considering how cheap storage is nowadays and the advent of installing games to your HDD. That's kinda insulting.

    How much are those Wi-Fi adaptor things for the normal 360’s? Because I’m thinking of just getting a 250gig elite version. The other benefits of the slim model I just don’t care about.

    Kinect ready!? Who cares, Kinect looks like shit.

      N-adaptor Wi-Fi is about $145, but they seem a little thin on the ground at the moment-could be a way of funnelling customers towards a $399 console.
