At the Xbox Summit 2005, Microsoft showed a packaging mock-up for the Xbox 360. The side of the box said that it would include a wireless controller, a hard drive, Xbox Live, headset, and ethernet cable. A pretty good list of inclusions, though by Xbox Live I guess they mean the hardware supports Xbox Live Silver out of the box. It’s nice to see the headset included, but what about audio/video cables?
They also announced a list of accessories that you’ll be able to purchase separately. Among them are hard drives, controllers, memory cards, extra batteries, charge units, headsets, faceplates, a remote control, and cables. Included in the list of cables are a VGA HD cable, component video cable, and S-Video cable. Gamespot says that you’d need the VGA HD cable to play HD, but I wonder why you couldn’t play HD over the component connection? It’s certainly capable.
