    A $200 Arcade with Natal could be a Wii killer.
  3. I think it will be even more of a deal. Elite with Natal for $250.
  4. Funny, I heard they were bundling the slim 360 with Natal, Halo Reach and your mom.

    Oooo! "Your mom" jokes!

    I never believe market Analysts as a rule. They don't have any special insights which anyone who reads the news knows. If they site some manufacturing plant information leak, then there might be more weight to the story. But I do hope that they're right on with the $299 Slim + 250 GB hard drive + Natall device.

    can i just get the xbox 360 without "Natal" ? and whats the point in a slim version anyway. it sits there under the TV, why should i care if the box is slightly smaller?

    I want a Xbox 720 that kicks PS3's *** when it comes to hardware, until then i see no point in changing anything.

    JudaZ, I don't know, but I guess Microsoft might still have a version without Natal for the hardcore gamer, though it will probably disappear in the long run. The smaller box just like Natal are for the Wii crowd, who wants a good looking accessory with cool features, rather than a console with hardcore games. Since I belong to that crowd (though I don't mind hardcore games), I do think it's a selling point.
