    Which version of the new Xbox 360 should I get with Kinect:

    The glossy 250GB for $299 and the Kinect for $149

    Total: About $450

    or

    The matte 4GB for $299 that is bundled with Kinect

    Total: About $299

    --

    The 4GB is obviously a better deal, but I am not sure that it's enough space.

    Please help me decide :confused:

    I'm curious as to why you would ask this in a Mac forum, instead of an Xbox forum, since choosng an Xbox has nothing to do with Macs.

    Yeah, I noticed both threads were in Apple Hardware. o_O

    Anyway, no use in two threads:

    I'm either going to get the cheaper one and buy a 250GB HDD, or get the Halo Reach one, which is matte silver. I think the glossy finish on the 'premium' Xbox 360 S just makes it look cheap.

    However, I have a perfectly functional 360 Pro so for now I'll do neither.

    Because you can post about a lot of topic on the MacRumors Forums and I already have an account here it's simply easier to do a poll, etc.

    This section of the forums has tons of posts about things that aren't apple hardware (cameras, harddrives, etc.), so I don't know why it says Apple Hardware.

    You also could have added the poll to the existing thread you started on the topic. There's no need to create duplicate or repetitive threads on the same topic, which is a violation of forum rules. Nor is there a need to post consecutively, which is also against forum rules.

    By the way, is there anything cool you can do with a 360 and a Mac? Sync it up, etc.?

    Actually, the thread I already started doesn't allow me to add on the poll later. So I had to make another post specifically for the poll.

    Can I vote for neither?

    Do you already have a 360? It sounds like you do, and if that's the case, why are you buying either bundle?

    Kinect is expensive, unproven and lacks a true killer app. Just wait on it. If you don't have a 360 already, get the 4 GB version for $199. Save a few hundred dollars, that you can invest on starting a great library of established, high quality, and discounted games.

    I don't have a 360, I have a PS3. I will use the Xbox 360 as the main gaming console, making the PS3 perfect for Blu-Ray, Playstation Move, and exclusive gaming titles. Therefore, I probably will need the extra space if it is going to be my main gaming console, because I will most definitely be downloading things.

    On that note, what's your vote?
