    Ok Every 360 Is Pretty Much The Same Except For Some Of The Stuff They Include In Them Everything Else Is The Same and Also the size of the hardrive.

    Arcade - No Hardrive just a 512 MB Memory Unit

    Elite - 120 gig

    Xbox 360- 60 gig

    Ok The Cheapest 360 There Is Is The Xbox 360 Arcade ($199.99) And The Reason Its The Cheapest It Because It Has No Hardrive (A Hardrive Is Just To Save Games) But Instead Of A Hardrive U Could Use A Memory Card Which Im Pretty Sure The Arcade Comes With....The Arcade Also Includes A Wireless Controller, Five Arcade Games (Which U Have 2 Download Cuz Im Pretty Sure They Just Give U The Codes To Download From The Xbox Live Market Place), And A Memory Unit.This console includes an HDMI output, so you can experience your games in the highest definition possible, up to 1080p (HDMI cable sold separately).Here are the acade games you'll be able to download when buying the Xbox 360 Arcade

    PAC-MAN Championship Edition



    Boom Boom Rocket

    Feeding Frenzy

    Holiday offer: Sonic the Hedgehog bonus game (and 5 Xbox LIVE Arcade games) included inside marked Xbox 360 Arcade packages.

This 360 comes with two games in the box which are Marvel Ultimate Alliance And Forza Motorsport 2.It comes with a headset for xbox live to chat with friends Xbox Live in my opinion is one of the best fetures but have to pay for it when u finish your 1 month free subscription.

    Source(s): Also If anyone wants to sign up to Prizerebel then go ahead its a website where you could get Xbox Live codes or MS Points absolutely free. This website is completely Legit. Just Check it out for yourself and look at the testimonials of other people that already took advantage of this Site. The Main reason i support this site is because I'm tired of people having to pay for Xbox Live and if you support me too then copy and paste this for people that ask for Xbox Live codes.

    Arcade has barely any memory space. You have to basically buy everything except a controller and a headset. But you get a lot of Arcade games. Arcade sux to me.

    The 60GB edition is a lot of memory space and it gives you 2 free games. I think the free games are Kung Fu Panda and Lego Indiana Jones. You have the Xbox Live wire to connect and some other stuff. I dont this version of the 360.

    I think the Elite is the same as the 60GB version. Either that or I dont know what Elite offers.

    Besides the games that come packaged and the colours:

    Elite: PRO Arcade

    H/ Drive/ Mem 120 Gbyte 60Gbyte 256 Kbytes

    Ethernet (Lan) Yes Yes No

    Optical sound Yes No No

    HDMI 1.2 Yes Not included No

    Go for the Elite ((I did).

    Be sure to ask around and ask for discount (you might be surprised)

    The Arcade has no hard drive, so to save games you would have to buy memory sticks or a hard drive.

    The 60GB? Maybe you mean the 20GB. This one has a 20GB hard drive.

    The Elite has a 120GB hard drive and it is black instead of white like the other ones.

    The Pro and Elite consoles have hard drives whereas the Arcade doesn't. The internal hardware in all of the systems are the same.

    Elite has more harddrive space. And it's newer so some say it has less chance of getting red ring of death. I have elite and it works great, but gameplay should be the same
