Nope - no minis here!

Another rant, enjoy:

I am not by any means dumb, I am a geek, a nerd and have an addiction to learning pretty well anything. I have played on if not owned every console since the Commodore 64... with 2 exceptions. The PS3 is on my to buy list... once it doesn't require me to re-mortgage the house I don't own and re-sell my soul (the interest on those things are steep!) in order to afford it. The other console is the XBox 360... I have never been a fan of Microsoft in the console market... I may have to wait 6 months to get it on PC but you just know it'll come out on it and are you telling me you don't have 6 years of gaming to catch up on anyway?)... but that aside the XBox was clearly a console with the controller and everything, you have to hand it to them the made one... but what the fuck is the 360?
I have asked game shop employees, friends and browsed the internet during my more bored moments what is the difference between the brands of 360? Core, Arcade, Pro, Premium, Elite - it makes ordering coffee at Starbucks look fucking simple. Any time I get close to a decent answer my eyes glaze over and I start wondering when video consoles started needing a course to be enjoyed...
So for all those who are contemplating bending over for Microsoft's attentions read on... alternatively if you just want help getting to sleep check out the Wiki article



Ok... got your lube? or are you hardcore? either way here we go...

Core - shit and no longer sold
Arcade - a little less shit with fuck-all 256MB Flash memory and HDMI port...
Pro - this is infact the same as the Premium, has 20GB memory - but actually there is a 60GB version, ethernet, headset, backward compatible and HD cabling
Elite - the pro with 120GB and fancier cables and only £80 more expensive...

In summary get the premium/pro if you need to get one.
