For those that pooh-pooh the Xbox for its lack of internal memory, well… now you will need something else to pick on.
After hearing that the 360 was adding a little something special inside, Xbox 360 Fanboy spoke to a “Microsoft spokesperson” to confirm the rumors. The Xbox 360 Arcade will now come with 256MB of internal storage. Now you can save all of your gaming goodness right to the unit; no memory card is needed.
We’re assuming that everyone clamoring to buy one on Black Friday got the goods without even knowing it.
Back in September, Microsoft dropped its console’s price to $199. As a result of that (as well as bundle deals), they did some nice business over the holiday weekend.
Did you buy an Xbox 360 Arcade on Black Friday? Did you know about the new memory? Have you opened the box or is it for someone else? Did you buy because of the new price? Drop a comment below.
