    I bought a console on e bay that stated it is a AS-IS Microsoft XBOX 360 Premium Game Console.

    The auction siad:

    This auction is for the UNIT ONLY and DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY ACCESSORIES, CORDS CONTROLLERS, ETC. Sold AS-IS with no Returns or Guarantees.

    I sent them a e mail saying, I thought Premium came with a hard drive. I thought Premium means includes hard drive and
    The core game system does not include hard drive.

    They sent e mail back saying: The items are listed as PREMIUM systems simply for the fact that they are ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE A HARD DRIVE (unlike the core system which can not).

    Is this a fact that the core system dosn't accommodate a hard drive? Should I have gotten a hard drive?

    Core system can accomadate a harddrive to my knowledge. Just doesnt come with one at purchase.

    However as they said "UNIT ONLY"

    Im prety sure they just meant the 360.

    Core means you get the console only

    but of course you could buy the hard drive and attach it

    You'll get the premium console, meaning the 360 will have the chrome dvd bezel. But that's it... no hdd. They clearly stated no accessories. And because they did state it, you'll have no way to challenge the idea of expecting the hdd to be included.

    yep this line says it all

    This auction is for the UNIT ONLY and DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY ACCESSORIES, CORDS CONTROLLERS, ETC. Sold AS-IS with no Returns or Guarantees

    nothing but the console i'm afraid. Hard drive is an accessory

    they advertise a premium system, but you are not getting one.
    If it does not come with a hard drive and all the accessories (headset, Xbxo Live Gold trial, cables, hard drive and so on) then what you have is a core system with a different DVD bezel (faceplate)

    Seeing that the system have a $100 price difference i hope you are getting one heck of a deal because it will cost you a bit to get all thos things.

    Plus i would never buy a system from Ebay in the first place. You never know what your getting. It could be refurbished, it could be banned from Xbox Live or other problems.

    Got a core system and put the 120gig HD in it...

    They only differences in the 2 (Core and Premium)

    Core Doesn't come w/ a Hardrive and it doesn't have a Wireless Controller and no HD Video Cables... only Standard Video Cables...

    Were as Premium has HD, Wireless Controller and Component Video Cables....

    It does say AS-IS... but on the other hand it should just be
    listed as a Microsoft XBOX 360 Game Console... not a Premium Console.....
