Except at launch, the xbox with the 20GB HDD was $399.99, or $299.99 without a HDD. Want to upgrade your launch xbox to a more reasonably sized hard drive? I hope you're ready to pay extra. Oh shit, did your xbox get a red ring of death while out of warranty? Guess you'll have to buy another! Also, have fun with the $50/year for xbox live if you want to play multiplayer!

So, 5 years of xbox 360:
1. Launch console, $400
2. New HDD, $100
3. Replacement console after RROD, $300
4. 5+ years of xbox live, $250+

Total: $1050+

Suddenly, that $800+ on a PC doesn't look so bad.
