Microsoft reveals pricing et al on latest XBOX devices

Microsoft today released lots of information on its new XBOXen. This post just gathers some of the information released.
First of all, Microsoft plans to start selling later this year. The company beleives that this will let them be the first of the three console makers to release their next-gen gaming platform. To say it once again: M$ wants to be faster than Nintendo and Sony! We can expect these devices hitting ther shelves soon-so dontb get that high-priced XBOX if you dont want to do Linux!
In addition, Microsoft will offer two series designated Core and Pro.
XBOX 360 core
The core model will cost 299$. It will not-unlike the original XBOX-include a hard drive. So, if you want to save state, you gotta buy an external module. A 64Meg one will cost about 40$. It is said to have an ethernet port. BTW, it comes in a green box.
XBOX 360 pro
This model will cost 399$ and comes in a cream colored shell. Thus, it is the dearest console MicroSoft ever sold-the original XBOX began sellng at 299$. It includes a 20GB hard drive, a wireless game controller(latency, uh-oh???), an XBOX live subscription(dont ask for how long) and a remote control.
Of course, all these specs aren't chiselled into stone yet. If you want to see more, look at these articles:

Hi People,
I can understand you LMAO about the comment above. But-if you ask me-it is not spam. The blog looks "bad"(vanilla wordpress and awful text blocks as posts). However, it has a nice and interesting roundup of Xbox related articles from all over the web!
Do you beleive that the post should be deleted?
Best regards
Tam Hanna
