    They are all same, just the items what you are going to receive (inside the box) are different.
    You need HDD (or memory unit), controller, and headset.
    Also i recommend you to buy charging kit with battery pack because regular batteries are gonna die after 2 days.
    Core system is just the xbox 360 and nothing else.

    Search what Jim posted few times and explained the differences.

    just save until you can dish out the extra 100 for the premium bundle. The core is a rip off. Because eventually you WILL end up buying the HDD and its 99 bucks on its own. Plus the wireless controller is awesome!

    i believe you have to have the HDD to download stuff, some of the files for demos are over a gig in size! fills up the space quickly,

    DO NOT bother with the core, you will end up paying more! just go out, grab the platinum and get Gears of War, buy it at best buy, get the warantee and in two years when they are cheaper yours can "BREAK" and you get the money you payed originally back, pick up a newer / better one and buy a game or two!

    GOW is short 8-10 hours but it's not about the story line, its about multiplayer.
    There is no better shooter out there, for PC, XBOX, XBOX 360, PSX ...it's amazing.
