Doubt you’ll see different spec xbox’s. MS have strict Technical Certification Requirements (TCR) which dont even allow you at present to depend on a hard drive in a 360. Although i’d reckon majority of ppl probably have a HD in their xbox. (who bought the cores, i dunno anyone ?? ;))

Therefore, its unlikely they will allow developers to limit their games to "uber xbox" etc. It doing MS out of money as they ultimately get a percentage of the sales of every game on their platform. So ideally they want everyone to be potentially able to buy and play every game. Its all about the $$$
