MS adds X360 incentives

Microsoft is enticing Xbox 360 Core and Arcade system owners to acquire a high-capacity 512MB memory module or 20GB hard drive, offering an upgrade path for interested users. The program is designed to prepare lower-end Xbox 360 owners for the upcoming user interface update, coming November 19th. Core systems can be eligible for either a free 512MB memory module, or a $20 20GB hard drive, while Arcade owners can pay $30 for the 20GB hard drive, with three months of Xbox Live Gold.

The upgraded dashboard interface offers users a brand new GUI, along with Nintendo Mii-like avatars, support for Netflix, and various social tools. The various hardware models featuring the updated interface will also be available with software bundles. Arcade systems will come with Sega Superstars Tennis and the existing five arcade titles, while the Pro and Elite models will feature Kung-Fu Panda and Lego Indiana Jones
