Defining the Xbox, Fully Bundled Microsoft's Xbox and Xbox 360 video game console systems have managed to exceed the expectations of many fans. The Xbox 360 full system was poised to capture even the most cynical gamers' heart. Did it succeed? In short, yes. The Xbox, fully bundled, is impressive enough to capture the hearts and minds of gamers across the various console universes. So what can you expect from the Xbox, fully bundled? And what's the difference between a regular Xbox bundle, and the full system? Is it worth it to pay more for the Xbox, fully bundled? Here is a brief and simple overview that can help you decide what would work better for you. The fully bundled Xbox 360 system contains everything you need to start playing all your favorite games right away. It contains the Xbox 360 video game console, one wireless controller, an Ethernet cable, an HD component and composite AV cable, a headset, and a sweet 20 GB hard disk drive. The fully bundled Xbox 360 system retails at $399. Clearly, the fully bundled Xbox 360 system comes with just about every important accessory that you would need to for most of your gaming needs. With a fully bundled Xbox 360 system, you can get online and download all the demos and games from the Xbox Live Marketplace that you desire, since you have a fast broadband Internet connection and lots of space on your hard drive to save your games and other various game-related downloads. With the fully bundled Xbox 360 system, you are also set to join in on the fast and furious online multiplayer games. With your broadband Internet connection, wireless controller and headset, you can quickly jump into online games and even communicate with team members or game opponents. With the extra-generous 20 GB hard disk drive, you won't have to spend extra money on purchasing memory cards to save your games. It will take a very long time to fill up this large disk drive. According to some video game console analysts, the $399 you plunk down in order to purchase the fully bundled Xbox 360 is worth it in the long run. Why? Part of the reason many critics and analysts feel this way is that the fully bundled Xbox 360 system contains all the major elements that you will need in order to stay at the top of the latest technology of the next generation video game consoles. Everything about the fully bundled Xbox 360 package allows you to experience a high definition and wireless gaming experience. Many analysts agree that this is the future of gaming, in which players will depend increasingly on online gaming services such as Xbox Live and the Xbox Live Marketplace. Some analysts go so far as to say that even if you do not have access to a broadband high speed Internet connection or a high definition television set, you will still probably benefit from purchasing the fully bundled version of the Xbox 360 video game console system. As these services and items become more widely available, having the Xbox 360 fully bundled version of the console will come in handy. So what is the alternative to purchasing the fully bundled version of the Xbox 360 system? The alternative is the Xbox Core system. The core system comes with the Xbox 360 game console and a wired controller (as opposed to the wireless controller). You do not get the huge storage space, headset, and Ethernet or AV cables. If you buy the Xbox core system and then decide you want the headset, you need the cables, and you need the generous space offered by a 20 GB hard drive, you will end up paying the same or maybe more than if you had purchased the fully bundled Xbox 360 game console in the first place.
