Xbox Live 60GB Pack Slips
Microsoft's rumored Xbox Live Starter Pack has already turned up through a flyer advertising the bundle to guests at this week's Leipzig Games Convention, including members of NeoGAF's community. The pack is as predicted in earlier leaks and would include the 60GB hard drive otherwise available only with the new Xbox 360 Pro, an Xbox Live wired headset, and a three-month pass for Xbox Live Gold.
The aim of the pack is to give an upgrade option either for Xbox 360 Arcade owners without a hard drive or else 20GB Xbox owners looking for a quick and less expensive upgrade path than the 120GB add-on drive, which has cost as much as $180.
A German launch of the Starter Pack is set to take place on November 21st and price the kit at 79 Euros, or the equivalent of $117. Previous assertions had the US launch due in late October or early November for $100, with a price cut on the 120GB drive to $150 in September.
