    I plan on getting the 250gig HDD simply because it comes with the transfer cable. My 20 gig is just about full. I think I have 3 gigs or so free.

    I got 12 months for $39 about a month ago; don't know how that compares to 14 months for $49. Sort of sucks because I'm rarely on Live nowadays, but that all might change since work is slowing down a LOT due to parts issues.

    It was on the menu where announcements are. Just selected it, and paid. I believe it's on every once in a while. My account was about to expire when I saw it and just jumped on it.

    it used to cost money. those of us who paid for the opera browser got a rebate for a free virtual console game.

    i sold it for 100 yesterday.

    if you looking for a HD check gamestop they lowered the prices of the used ones since the 250 gig HD is supposed to be in stock tomorrow.

    well its really going to support 2 16 gig drives so u can get a total of 32 gigs.

    a buddy of mine was talking about this last week and he thought it was going to be able to have a external HD but it turns out just to have a max 16 gig, looks like scan disk is going to make some flash drives for the xbox
