Xbox 360 Arcade confirmed

Photos of retail displays appear to confirm the existence of the Xbox 360 Arcade, a new low-cost version of Microsoft's game console. While the current low-end model, the Core, had its price cut to $280 in early August, it has been seen as increasingly irrelevant, as it comes with a wired gamepad and no default games or storage. The Arcade by contrast will come with a 256MB memory card, and a wireless controller like that for the standard and Elite 360s.

The console's name comes mostly from a bundle of five games taken from the Xbox Live Arcade; though these titles are not mentioned, rumored ones have included "Uno," "Pac-Man," "Feeding Frenzy," "Luxor 2" and "Boom-Boom Rocket." Pricing for the system is expected to remain at $280, in part to present a threat to Nintendo's $250 Wii console. [via GameSpot]
