I’ve had an Xbox for a few years, which I’ve played off an on, and which I recently filled up the 20 gb hard drive on so I’m looking to upgrade. Since my current system is one of the older models and I know that besides the larger hard drive that the new ones have some additional new features I’m interested in (HDMI, built in wi-fi, quieter?, etc.), I’m strongly leaning towards buying a new system altogether and making the old one a secondary system in another room.
Now, I’m focusing on the new(er) 250 gb “slim” systems which go for $300 on Amazon, but I’d like to make sure there’s not something better or any upcoming price drops I should be holding out for. I see that there had been a 250 gb holiday bundle during Christmas which came with came with 2 games for the same price, and missing out on “free” games for the same price kind of disappoints me, so I’d be interested to hear if similar packages may be upcoming.
So, really my question is whether or not the standard $300 for the Xbox system going now is the best I’m going to do, or if anyone has heard of any upcoming upgrades, promotions, or price drops. Does anyone who follows this stuff closer than I do have any information or advice for me?
