There are people who are serious gamers and gaming is a part of their lives. But $350 or even $300 is a bit more expensive for them and the current price of the Microsoft Xbox 360 console varies from $300 to $350.
It becomes difficult for those serious gamers to afford these consoles. It is true that is far better than the previous versions of the console and has many more features in it but still people were not prepared for the fact that this console would cost $400 when it will be launched.
But those gamers who cannot afford this console do not need to lose heart; they have another a bit cheap option for them.
They can even play games like Bioshock, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and many more with the help of the Xbox 360 core console. This is cheaper than the previous one but does not have all the features.
Without the Hard Drive
The only thing that is lacking in the Xbox 360 core console is the hard drive. It does not have an internal hard drive but this does not pose a threat to the saving of the games that you will play.
There is an internal memory which stores all your favorite games and you can play them whenever you want. Today you do not need memory cards to store your game and be in constant tension of losing the games from the memory.
The internal memory has sorted out this problem. You will save almost $50 for not buying a memory card because of the 2 GB hard drive space that that console offers.
This has been a great improvement. You can even buy a hard drive and fit it into your Xbox 360 core console and enjoy the features of the hard drive without going for the expensive console, this will also save you quite a lot of money.
Great many titles are available with the Xbox 360 core console and if you do not get one now you are going to miss it.
The Xbox 360 core console also provides you with a wide range of game and the external hard drive will provide a good graphics and hence there is nothing for which you should not get this console.
But the Xbox 360 core console does not have the Netflix support which is a great miss on its part, but this won´t create much problem if you have your PC to watch movies.
If you want games like the Halo 3 then you must go for this Xbox 360 core console. The graphics are better than the HDTV´s. Its price is almost about $250. You can also buy used consoles.
