Microsoft launches Xbox 360 Arcade

Xbox 360 Arcade Official

After a series of retail leaks, Microsoft today has formally released the Xbox 360 Arcade. This replacement for the stripped-down Core system is intended for families and others who need the storage the Core lacks but would stop short of the regular Xbox 360's hard drive; a 256MB flash card provides both room for saved games and a handful of Xbox Live Arcade games, five of which (including Pac-Man and UNO) are loaded out of the box. The Arcade also receives the HDMI output of the Elite and other higher-end models and can output 1080p with surround audio on an optional cable.

The new budget system similarly trades up to a wireless gamepad, but continues to bundle an RCA cable to reduce costs. The console is known to be in stores today and continues to sell for the same $280 price as the outgoing Core model.

    Nope, Not 1080p

    This product does have HDMI, but the box specs say it only does 1080i, unlike the Elite which does 1080p - that's a big difference in image quality for HD fans.
