I was considering buying an Xbox 360 Spring Arcade bundle at Gamestop since it's pretty cheap right now, but I've heard bad things about it. Honestly I really don't plan on using Live that much at all. I heard it comes with a free month though so I might take advantage of that, but I had a few questions. 1. How does the Arcade model connect to the internet? Does it include everything needed or do I need to buy a part for it in order to take advantage of the free month of Live? Also, when does the free month start? Can I take advantage of it whenever I please or does it start immediately when I buy the console? 2. Are the differences between all the models just the amount of hard drive space? Would buying a separate hard drive later to add on make it pretty much the same as all models? I really don't plan on doing anything like downloading games from the Arcade or movies. As long as I can play DVD's I'm alright with that. As I said, I don't really plan on playing many multiplayer games, I might play some later on with my cousin and uncle if I desire later on since they don't live in town.
