Xbox 360 Core Pack To Be Replaced By The Arcade
The holiday shopping season is around the corner, and so is the latest Microsoft offer. The Redmond company plans to release another low-budget Xbox 360 console, code-named "Arcade".
October 4, 2007
Aside from the console itself, the offer will include a memory card, wireless controller and five Xbox Live Arcade games, with Feeding Frenzy and Boom Boom Rocket being the only ones listed.
Microsoft doesn't say it, but its rather obvious that the Xbox 360 Arcade is the replacement the Core, especially since many retailers have already axed the latter from their offers.
The new console will retail for the same price as the old Core, $279.99. Its official debut is scheduled for October 23.
