Microsoft's Xbox 360 Arcade UK edition: no hard drive, but supports HDMI

On 6 March, Microsoft will launch an edition of the Xbox 360 that’s identical to the Arcade Edition, which was originally unveiled for the UK back in October.

The console comes with HDMI compatibility, a wireless controller and a 256MB memory card, instead of a hard drive. In the UK, the machine also ships with five full-version games, including Pac-Man Championship Edition. Whether Japanese gamers will be treated to the same deal remains to be seen.

The bargain basement Microsoft machine will retail for ¥27,800 (£130/€190/$260) in Japan.
