The New XBOX 360 Answered


I just want to hear what you guys think about about the new xbox, which was released yesterday, I have heard it has built- in Wi Fi, quieter running, looks good and has a massive 250 gb hard drive.
PS3 owners don't start bragging about ps3 here, just honestly say what you think about it.

Advantages over current XBOX 360:
>250 GB Internal Hard Drive
>Improved reliability
>Internal Wi Fi at the strongest strength, not en extra £60 ($100)
>Kinect Ready
>Only $299 0r around £180-200 (same price as the current elite)
>Amazing new retro looks to the original XBOX

here is the Microsoft Website (a bit biased though!)

I'm usually hesitant towards gimmicks (I bought a wii and was very disappointed), but I was thoroughly excited when Natal was announced last year. This year's game lineup for Kinect has me a bit worried though..... But I'll probably pick up this new console anyway, and that stupid little camera.

The Kinect or the current camera, by the way Kinect is going to be around £50- £60, don't know in dollars though.

it will work with all 360s but you will need to spend an extra $50 plus the price for Kinect, to buy a USB to Kinect adapter

Also, instead of the RROD, it has a red dot of death. It also shuts itself off to prevent from overheating and breaking when that happens.

I have it and love it!! for one, its a fingerprint magnet. Its very quiet, microsoft removed the fans from the back for one larger quieter fan on the side. To me it seems like it runs cooler than the original. Heat pours out of my friends xboxes, make no mistake this one gets hot but not as hot. The hard drive is way better, it goes straight into the xbox, through a small door on the bottom, keeping it concealed. The hard drive has been changed also, so if you do get this you will need to use a flash drive to move your data over. the biggest plus for me is the wifi, it supports 802.11N, i do have an N router, but there is some sort of discrepancy between the to so right now I'm on G, which in all honesty is more than enough speed. But not having to run an Ethernet cable is really great!! I got mine with a free controller from target. I think it's well worth the $300.00

To me, it looks like what it should have when it was released. Microsoft never should have pushed a faulty console. If they had focused on quality, rather than release date, they would have had a better console to begin with...

But don't go thinking I'm a PS fanboy. (Those things are pretty BOSS, but with a high price tag, I ain't touching one.)

I just bought an old RROD'd console the other day on eBay, gonna fix that instead.  Plus, I just think the new console looks dumb.

Looks (and sounds) awesome. It's also from what I heard, it's only $299. Hope I can get one eventually.

Why a dot? The shutting itself down thing is pretty cool, although it would be annoying if it just randomly shuts off and you can't/didn't save.

That would suck. I didn't even mean to say the same thing three or four times on this page, so don't think I'm spamming. It was a glitch! I promise! the other two were supposed to say other things about it. When I said the thing about the dot, it changed all of my other comments on the page to that comment. How annoying..

This is the Xbox 360 that Microsoft should have released in the beginning.

Does it blow up it you touch it at all like the old xbox360, or is it a little more rugged than that?

I dont kneow, but by judging by the size of THAT HUGE fan on the side, cooling/ overheating problems have been sorted

With the original, If you bumped it or did anythingthing but let it stand, it would scratch the disk or make the console fail.

Im super excited for this, me and my friend are going to buy one, but first were gunna wait, id hate to see more red ring of death >< but yeah, the thing looks amazing, its sporting some sharp angles there, and the 250 GB hard drive is a huge plus. I really like seeing it next to the normal 360, its soo much smaller.
