Review: Xbox 360 Arcade a good deal for $199

50°
330w ago - Ever since launch, the Xbox 360 core model without hard drive has largely been written off by gamers -- and rightfully so. It lacks many of the attractive advantages of its older brothers, not to mention value for what's included in the box. (Most core models can't even save games without separate purchase!)

But all that's about to change with the upcoming $80 price cut of the latest Arcade bundle (September 7, according to retailers), which includes a matte white system, wireless controller, and a 256 MB memory card for saving games and playing online.

50°
330w ago - Sierra Entertainment today announced that Red Baron Arcade, a World War I based air combat game originally seen on PC, will hit the PlayStation Network later next month on September 18.

In addition to an expansive single-player campaign sprawling 36 missions, the game's online multiplayer aspect features three gameplay modes in all – Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag – each with support for up to eight players.

Thankfully, a playable demo will be available on release day.

Evidence of the Elite and Arcade price cut can be found in the picture below featuring an image from the Sept. 7 Radio Shack flyer.
