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 360’s “user experience” 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 360’s evolution. While many were anticipating backward compatibility files for games like Halo 2, Microsoft has chosen to remain mum on the subject. Let’s hope this isn’t another Windows 95 Plus! pack. TyeDye desktop theme, anyone?
