Giving the public no choice and only one version of the xbox 360 IMO is a bad idea. $399 is expensive in alot of folks eyes. I think MS made the right decision in having 2 models of the 360.

Confirmation from the horse's mouth. And notice he hints that you should try to have one.
And here's a quote from a forum member who is working on the game
"No, it won't be scaled down at all. It'll be the exact same game, with the exact same content with or without the HDD. And no, that doesn't mean it's scaled down to begin with."

That just proves the point that the HD has been rendered a mere peripheral that developers won't use except for saved games, lame downloadable video clips, and other multimedia crap.
The HD is now in the same category as the light gun, $200 Capcom joystick, PS2 HD, DDR dance pad, boxing gloves, etc.
As long as a lot of people don't have a HD, there's no reason why a developer would spend a lot of time to take advantage of it. Developers always want to maximize the audience and therefore, they always program for the lowest common denominator.
