The Bottom Line While it's neither a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners nor as feature-packed as the PS3, the Xbox 360 Elite's combination of top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the current game console of choice. Though the new Xbox 360 certainly addresses most of the concerns we've had with the versions before it, we don't think it warrants a purchase if you already own an Xbox 360 in working order with an HDMI-out port and a hard drive. The Core System is a cheaper, bare-bones version of Microsoft's Xbox 360. With its extensive digital media features, a superior online service, and an excellent game library, the Xbox 360 remains the game console to beat.
