Yup. And most of the games they showed off were what Wii was offering around launch. It looks pretty cool and interesting, but its going to be a little while before the games come out that take full advantage of Kinect

yeah i think i'll still buy it, seems like a nice blended approach and if the wife likes it maybe she'll let me get a bigger tv

Can I trade in my 20GB for this???? Anyone?

I'm definitely buying one.. Just from a crackhead.. Won't pay $300 for a console when I repair them almost everyday. I already own 5 360's (why? buy broke console for $50, sell for $150), and quite frankly Microsoft should be offering rebates or discounts to anyone with E71, E74, E80, etc errors due to the faulty manufacturing process..

Now they go 45nm? Now they ditch those trashy fans? Now they include wi-fi (the only reason I'm buying this thing is for the wireless-n)? Now they include a 250gb HD?

Microsoft disgusts me.

p.s.
For modding purposes, there may be a new drive (considering there claim that this thing is quiet when the new LiteOn 9-series drives are anything but) so if you plan on buying this and modding it I'd hold off for at least a week until people can say what's actually inside the fucker.

^ Doubt it, I'm sure they FINALLY decided to fix it since his hardware is different all around, not just newer chips and shit

Microsoft is like cake for a fat person, every time when you try to swear off of it, a new tasty flavor is released....

Damn you MS, now I gotta buy it when I get some money.

The reduction in die size to 45nm pretty much would solve most of the RROD problems that were GPU/CPU related. Reduction in thermal output is the biggest factor. This has been true for every Xbox 360 revision since the Xenon. Microsoft continually reduced the power draw, lowering the processors rated thermal design power and thereby its thermal output, which ultimately led to far less warping of the board and joint fractures. This is why Jasper 360's have a failure rate around 5% rather than 65% for Xenon boxes. The (H)ANA chip problems may still persist, but I would think Microsoft would use a better fabrication process now so that the initial solder joint issues wouldn't be a problem.

I still can't believe Microsoft let the Xenon revision even happen in the first place. That many failures is just inexcusable.

Another reason I love my custom-built PC - near infinite cooling possibilities! :thumbup:

I'll just go buy a PS3 Slim instead of buying one of these. I've survived three years with a 20GB 360 and it only RROD'ed once. I'm mad that they finally fix all of these features now

I'm really torn on buying one of these. My 360 is old but works fine. At the same time I really want one of these.

So Microsoft finally releases a 360 with features the PS3 has had since launch.

Nice.

Sadly, I've went through 4 of the current 360's. Still on my 5th, though it must be hard for the 360 to break itself because I never turn it on anymore.

I love the PS3 and am kind of anxious for Playstation move. I'll probably sell my Wii by the time that comes out.

All reports are Sony stole the show @ E3.

Well I'm a Microsoft fan. But I own a PS3 and not a 360.


Here's my carefully studied and highly-educated conclusion of which platform is the best:

I'm in the same boat... I really want that 250 gb drive though, and it looks so sleek and not prone to overheating. Maybe after a few more paychecks I'll go get one.

For anyone thinking of buying this only for the 250gb drive. DO NOT!

Buy this drive from NewEgg:

Western Digital Scorpio Black 250gb, $52.99

..flash it yourself (I'll tell you how) and put it in your 360 HD enclosure.. Done!

98 "games" and more than half of it are crap. Wow. That's just great. I'm sorry I offended your MAC. Now can you shove it up your ass, loser?

Whoa, whoa...Lets get back on track here people.

I really want one of these things. The Wi-Fi, the Harddrive and the noise are what has me sold. Its just that I do not have a ton of cash, so there will have to be a trade in program from Gamestop or something for me to get this.

If there is one where you trade the System, Harddrive, 2 controllers, and get the new on for 50-100, I might be VERY inclined to do this.

Real Deal
06-16-2010, 08:50 PM
I've been bored of the 360 lately. So I went and bought a ps3 slim for a hell of deal. Im enjoying it more than the 360. So many more features. Free internet, which microsoft does charge 50$ A YEAR.

I said fuck it the other day, I brought back the 64. Mario Party 2, Goldeneye, Cruisn the World, Diddy Kong Racing, Mario Kart, NBA Hangtime, Wcw Revenge and No Mercy are satisfying me right now.

I"m not interested in this console by I went to the Exchange to trade in my 360. It came with 2 wireless controllers, 20 gig hard drive and the microsoft wireless adapter. They only offered me $130 in trade credit and $100 cash. You're better off selling your old console on Craigslist or Ebay or something. I ending up selling the console controllers and hdd for $130 and the wireless adapter for another $40.

No, I think it just directly connects to the new 360 while for the old ones you need an additional power cord. Not sure.

My recommendation: How to upgrade on the cheap. http://www.gamestop.com/gs/landing/xb360250trade/default.aspx

With what I have I'll get $187 for trade in. (Xbox/Controller (100) + 20 GB drive (30) + Wireless Adapter (40) + 10% extra trade-in with Edge card (17))All the Gamestops in NE Ohio have sold out of the new version and are waiting for shipments, but you still can reserve the new Xbox and the trade in pricing until 7/18.

New Xbox for $112 baby...

Most gamestops only got 4-6 of them anyway. Don't act like they sold out hundreds in a day. And since when did the edge card work for system tradeins?
