It looks like there will be things pre-loaded on the Xbox 360 hard drive which I think is a great idea, as if I am going to pony up the extra cash to get something that I pretty much figure you have to have, then I want something a little extra with it.
Joystiq with the details:
In another X05 announcement, our favorite Michael Stipe look-alike, J Allard, gave us the goods on the content that will be pre-installed on the 360 hard drive – for those of us who pony up for it (the more budget-conscious can stop reading now). This bonus content will showcase the 360â€™s â€œuser experienceâ€ features such as system wallpaper and gamer profile customization, as well as a sample soundtrack. Also included is the puzzle game, Hexic, and a behind-the-scenes video of the 360â€™s evolution. While many were anticipating backward compatibility files for games like Halo 2, Microsoft has chosen to remain mum on the subject. Letâ€™s hope this isnâ€™t another Windows 95 Plus! pack. TyeDye desktop theme, anyone?
