IntroducedLate 2005

A Demo Kit is a version of the Xbox 360 console used by game developers to demonstrate builds of games at conventions. They do not come with a Sidecar and thus include a standard 20GB Hard Drive. They were specifically designed to look like a retail console to not draw attention from the public.
