Xbox 360 CORE is not Hardcore

That core is just a scam. Like an apple's core. The 360 core is just an apple core, the premium is everything on the outside. Do you ever eat an apple core? No. Do you eat what's outside the apple core? Yes.

Apple, the computer company should be making consoles and calling it a core, not XBOX, lol! As for eating the apple core, nope, can't say tha I have.

I think Barebones would have been a better name for it, but it wouldn't have been considered "innovative.." At least it wouldn't have been misleading.

That is just a part of business. The company I work for uses something similiar. It plays on people minds. They think they are getting one thing, when if they had done a little research they would know that what they thought they were going to get was not really what was being offered.

I certainly don't like it, but I understand it. I people would just slow down and take the time to do a little research there would be any questions or problems later.

As was said in another thread, Microsoft loses money per XBOX 360. The core is a way of making it back, having to buy all theother accessories. They make money off of the games and accessories, too. The Premium is always a better buy, but if oyou dont care for backwards compatability, or game saves, or wireless, or anything else, than go for core. The only reason I would've bought core was if there were none left of the premos and then I would sell the core on eBay, because the prices for a 360 are skyrocketing there.
