If you are one of the people who bought the original Core or Arcade then you are fresh out of luck with the New Xbox 360 Dashboard.
You see the new Dashboard requires a minimum of 256 Mb storage space to install and the original Core came with no storage space at all and the original Arcade only came with 64Mb.
This wouldn’t be such a disaster if the Xbox 360 HDD was reasonably priced but have you seen the latest prices?
We don’t know exactly how large the update is but if it’s anywhere near 256Mb then our new Arcade friends are going to be stuck with the decision of deleting all their Arcade games or updating the dashboard.
The lack of hard drive in the Arcade has always been one of Microsoft’s biggest mistakes and now it could come back to really bite them in the ass.
