Xbox 360 Arcade Box Leak
Microsoft's Xbox 360 Arcade replacement for the Core system has received even further confirmation today, courtesy of an inside source sending a photo to Ars Technica. The console is known to not only include a 256MB memory card and five preloaded games (including Pac-Man and Uno) but will also upgrade the entry-level system to a wireless gamepad. HDMI output is also likely to appear, though the system will continue to bundle an RCA video cable to keep its costs low.
No release date has yet to escape for the Arcade, though the new report says the system should be available soon and will echo past rumors with a $280 price. Microsoft's leaked plans so far have called for the Core to be phased out entirely rather than drop in price.
