360 Elite No Longer Ships With HD Cables

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - 360 Elite No Longer Ships With HD Cables

Uh oh, good thing I already have a 6' cable for under $10 bucks.

Stay away from official Sony/Microsoft/Monster cables. While we're at it, just buy one from newegg, amazon, or monoprice.

pick up one with that $100 you saved

Exactly, if the console is $100.00 less, it is well worth it.

meh, when you're saving 100 dollars, i guess a 1 dollar set of cables won't really ruin your day.

Well if this turns out to be true, I'm very happy I already have my Xbox 360 Elite :) I would find it annoying to buy something extra to enjoy my HD TV experience.

Everyone needs to play Lost Odyssey! Any opposition to this and I will have to just say, "If it's a fight you want, you got it!"

I picked up mine a year and a half ago for $399, complete with both the dual composite / component cables and HDMI cable, which retails for $50 alone, and headset, which is anywhere from $30-$50 depending if you buy it alone or as part of the Xbox Live Starter Kit, so it was a pretty good deal for me considering I would have had to have spent roughly $100 extra on the HDMI cable and starter back separately if I got the 20 GB Pro model, plus I got an extra 100 GB of hard drive space.

This is simply M$ way of making more money since people who want the most out of their system will obviously be willing to shell out some extra dough for HD cables.

You know I was always wondering why no one ever used the dollar sign for $ony, but then I realized they have no money so it would be pointless.

well good thing they didn't remove the headset.

Sony on the other hand seriously needs to bundle the headset with the consoles.

big deal, my hdmi cable cost me 5 bucks and I had no problem using it for almost 2 years now. Seriously don't know what people thinking when they buy " official " cables from Sony and MS.


I feel bad that i spent 20 bucks on a cable last yr. I didn't know they were cheaper as in 5 bucks...

Micrsoft raising the price of xbox's, excluding parts of the bundles, stealing games, songs, and instruction maunals for games from Sony


Im not trolling or anything, i was thinking about buying a 360 but ill just wait for it to be priced at $150 or get it when the RROD is atleast 20% better
