  1. Hello,
    What is the difference between the xbox 360 Pro and the xbox 360 Arcade besides the price? I am going to buy one but i don't understand why one is cheaper than the other. And if you have any recommendations on which one to buy please comment.
    Thanks for any help.

    the arcade doesnt come with a hard drive, and as such cant be used for things like, live play and the downloading of extra content.

    The Arcade also comes with a wired controller (at least that was the case the last time I checked) whereas the Pro has a wireless one, a mic-earphone headset & even a some cables to hook it up to the TV.

    As a first time buyer you are better off going with the Pro or Elite (Pro was discontinued but some still have them in stock @ $250.). You'll get more out of it imo, as already described above. Here is a list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360#Comparison_of_features to compare but prices may be out of date depending on where you live.
